SICK, sick, sick... ick., ick, ICK

Not 2 minutes out of bed this morning Syd threw up & hasn't stopped since. Poor baby girl.

We had to run to the bank & when I asked Syd if she wanted her water sippy cup this is what she had to say...


So sad.

On a side note: for anyone who doesn't know I catch the stomach flu like its my JOB!

I am fully prepared to be sick with the stomach flu tomorrow (I'd say I have a 83% chance of getting sick after chilling with an infected person)

So, in preparation I've been mostly drinking & eating very lightly.

Things I will NOT be doing today:
1. going to an all you can eat buffet
2. eating Mexican food
3. indulging in a banana split

Those things are not pleasant on their way back out. Anything else I should avoid? Wish me luck.

this is a helpful tip given to me by derek swanson a few years ago....

DRINK LOTS OF GATORADE. It tastes like gatorade going down, and it tastes like gatorade coming back up.

also its filled with electrolytes which will help keep you hydrated even when youre throwing up.

Shauna is SO right. Which would rather taste coming back up: Gatorade or burritos with sour cream?

Did she say "spew"? Ahhh.... that's no fun for a little person! Or a big person! I hope you don't get it!

Katie said...

She is adorably heartbreaking.

Thai curry does not taste good coming back up. Trust me on this one.

Katie said...

Oh, and Chad has got it today...I am praying I don't get it. Spewing when you have a nursing baby = not fun.

Russ said...

Ditto on the Gatorade!!! Gotta love those electrolytes, going in or out. LOL!!!

I am so glad you did not get sick! I am like you... the somach flu LOVED me! I always get it. So when my kids get it I just assume I will have it in a day or two. I need to be smart like you by preparing by not eating so much!
