I've been able to get on some WiFi to update ya'll. I'm still in the hospital because on top of the infection in the uterus, I seem to have caught the stomach flu. I have had diarrhea for over 48 hours now and cant rehydrate fast enough to keep up with what I'm losing.So I am tethered to an iv and cannot see the baby or Tori for obvious reasons.

to make matters worse, yesterday DH began showing symptoms, so he dropped the baby off at my in-laws so he could go home and rest. But a few hours later he was vomiting so badly that the doctor recommended that he go to the ER to get hydrated. So after a horrible episode of vomiting and diarrhea in the ER, they admitted him last night too!

My parents have Tori and his parents have the baby. I can't even tell you how heartbroken I am. I need to be home with my newborn and bonding, and taking care of my husband, and doing fun Christmas stuff with my little girl. It's sucks so much that I already have the baby blues, but since I had a D&C I'm back in the maternity/womens ward and I hear newborns crying and I just ache inside! I'm so glad that the kids are ok and in good hands but I feel like the most useless mom in the world right now.

thanks for letting me have a pity party. I will hopefully get to go home today, but I don't know if I'm going to be able to take both the kids or either of them if I'm contagious. I'm such a mess!

Update:

Update: Well, it gets worse. my mom called this morning and said Tori was throwing up all night. she is taking her to the pediatricians office this morning. I will be released after lunch today and I will be able to take care of Tori at least. But if Eli doesn't present symptoms within 24 hours I have to wait to see him. this is awful...

Holy outrageous! I am so sorry you are going through this all at once. I really ache for you that you have to be away from your babies like this!

I pray that Eli doesn't get the illness, but since he's been with a different set of grandparents, hopefully that "quarentened" him enough. But poor Tori!

Hopefully it is just a nasty bug that passes fairly quickly so everyone can get healthy in time for Christmas! Feel better!

Oh no! I know this feeling...I was readmitted into the hospital with an infection after my first and my lil' one had to stay home and ended up getting an nasty clogged tear duct while I was in the hospital. It was a nightmare......I remember feeling so sad to not be home! ..... But knew I was in the place to get healthy to be able to take care of my baby! Hang in there, mama! Xoxoxo
