Pippa still has very bad diarrhea. The pediatrician will see her on Saturday if she still has it then. Thankfully, she is les tired, has no fever, and is no longer vomiting. Her stomach is very sensitive, though, and I still can't power nurse her. If she nurses for more than 30 minutes, she spits up, which isn't normal for her.
I've been pretty MIA for the past couple of weeks, with Jack being sick and then trying to catch up at work.
He is finally finished with his antibiotics (this morning). Only problem is they gave him a bad diaper rash and thrush! Fortunately, I caught it really quickly, and his pedi prescribed Diflucan. Yay! More crap to squirt down his throat!
He's feeling SO much better though. His appetite is finally back. Poor thing lost 7 ounces in the past month, from being sick and also starting daycare. I'm just hoping with all my heart that he doesn't get anything bad again. We can handle a little cold, but I just don't want to see him that sick again anytime soon.
And it's funny because I think I willed myself to get over my illness because I knew I had to have the energy to take care of him. I'm feeling utterly exhausted right now though and anxiously awaiting the weekend, when I'll hopefully be able to squeeze in a nap or two.
I still feel much the same. I meant to just sit and relax today. I truly did. I have sat. I haven't been anywhere. Haven't done anything round the house (Mum and DP would have told me off if I did). But I have still somehow managed to get embroiled in some spiritual work on FB and some mod work here.
Tomorrow I swear I am just sitting and relaxing and doing NO work and I mean NONE.
As for the kiddos, Michaela has sprouted another tooth, she is teething badly and getting hot and fussing round her mouth. I *think* it's just the teething but can't be sure. She's generally ok but a bit weepy and clingy.
Daniel was sent home from school today. He managed all week up to now, but his antibiotics have ended now and I wonder if that's what made him worse. So I'm keeping him off again tomorrow and monitoring him. Think he will have to go back to the doctor's AGAIN on Monday unless he rallies over the weekend. Poor love has been ill now for a good 3 weeks.
Oh crap, Adrienne, I completely forgot Jack was sick! He's always so happy in his pics on FB it's hard to tell. I'm sorry.
Sharron, all of my kiddos were sick for all of February so I know how you feel. You just wake up every morning with one hope, that they're all better. I swear I don't remember being that sick when I was a kid, not weeks on end like that unless it was the flu. These illnesses are worse than they were when I was a kid.
Missa, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that!! I remember being off school 2 days, maybe one week tops with viruses when I was a child. Daniel had 3 days off two weeks ago, ALL of last week off and then managed until Thursday this week when he was sent home sick so we kept him off today. I think he may need to go back to the doc for more antibiotics on Monday - he sounds very wheezy chest wise, has some symptoms of having a water infection and has been really pale, putting his head down a lot, and sorry for himself today, not at all the lively little boy I know. I've put my arms around him a few times and he's just flopped in my arms where he would normally give me a sticky kiss and then fight to be free.
