s.i.c.k. has replaced s.n.o.w.

as the new 4 letter word in our house.

I know it's normal for illness to constantly reside in a house that is inhabited by toddlers, animals and the random germ or two ... but come on ... I am over s.i.c.k. just like I am over s.n.o.w!

AngelBaby spent the entire weekend sick, sick, sick. The vomiting started on Friday night (midnight, don't you just know it?) and continued (every 20-30 minutes until Sunday. Her fever ran anywhere from 102* - 104* ... she was listless and only wanted to be held ... by mommy of course, no one else would do! She couldn't/wouldn't eat or drink and she is completely dehydrated.

She is ok now, but this is the 2nd time this has happened in the past month. And it is freaking me out. And why does it always happen on a Friday night, cause you know I don't want to venture on in to the city ER ... scary place on a Friday night!!

So, of course, I called the Doctor this morning ... could only talk to a nurse who said 'uh-huh, so she is feeling better today, right ... and you're worried beccaauuuuusse?' Because I am effing stupid I only have 4 children and you? Oh, you're single, gotcha! You obviously know more about these things than I .... get me the Doctor please!

Of course I have been assured - over and over - that there is a strong virus going around and if she isn't completely better by tomorrow, they would be glad to see her.

Perhaps that ( should have been the title of this post.

Anywho ... I had a few random moments to lurk around your blogs, but didn't get to comment much and doubt I will in the next couple of days .... and it scares me how much I miss it ...


Who in the rainbow can draw the line where the violet tint ends and the orange tint begins? Distinctly we see the difference of the colors, but where exactly does the one first blendingly enter into the other? So with sanity and insanity. Herman Melville

We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true -- even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20

Man, everyone is sick.

Have you tried Emergen-C?

wow, you're house is getting hit hard. If one of mine gets sick, I know it will go through the whole house sooner or later....but we aren't big I know if one of them is throwing up, they are REALLY sick!

Hope everyone gets better soon!

That's a great verse.

Sick in Florida too, first our adopted daughter who lives with her real parents, because we are cool like that. And (because Honey went to see our poor sick little friend and brought it home for me)sneezing and sore throat..but I figured I'd sweat it out at the gym.

Yuuuuuuuck! Hope she gets better soon. REALLY soon!

I really like your sanity/insanity quote. I think I know LOTS of borderline people.

I'm not a mom, so my only adive to you is WASH YOUR HANDS! We have about 1600 kids coming to work today, and I'll be obsessively washing if I touch somethng those little germ factories already touched!

We have really lucked out in our house this year. NO one has been that sick and at least not the vomit kind of sick. I can deal with a lot, but the puking is the worst.

Ugh there's nothing worse than barfing. I don't know how bulemics do it!

I hope everyone gets healthy soon. But do keep in mind that kids are like petri dishes. If one gets something they all get it. It's actually helpful since it's building their immune system. (I know that's not much comfort right now tho).
