1 out of 3
This week was fairly uneventful, up until this morning. After dinner last night, Jonah kept complaining that his stomach was bothering him, but couldn't elaborate much on exactly what was bothering him. At the same time, Eli was complaining that his head hurt and wasn't feeling well. They both went to bed at their respective bedtimes, then each woke up this morning to different ailments. Jonah had an upset stomach at some point during the night, as he threw up on the side of his bed, yet didn't bother to wake us up to help him - he just went back to bed. Eli woke up to chills and a fever of 102.3. Needless to say, they both stayed home from school, resting on the couch and taking it easy. Jonah hardly ate anything all day, but was able to catch up on a fair amount of Curious George episodes before dinner, then had another vomiting episode before he went to bed. We kept him up for awhile to make sure his stomach was a little more stable and to express to him the protocol for feeling ill in the middle of the night - please wake us up! Eli continued to shiver from chills on the couch, but his appetite remained intact, as he downed an entire pizza in less than 10 minutes at dinner. Ironically, Mira was the only one who went to school today. No fever, no vomiting. However, as history has proven, it's just a matter of time before the rest of us catch whatever stomach and/or flu-like bug(s) that are now floating around the house. I am crossing my fingers I don't get hit, as I have to travel to Canada again the beginning of next week.
