Lil Buddy got admitted to the hospital last night for dehydration because of a nasty stomach virus that we've been passing around our house. He is so miserable. The fluids they are giving him via IV are helping tremendously, but he still isn't drinking much at all.

And, here is another thing never to say to foster parents, "So what's up with his real mom." First and foremost, I don't care if you are a nurse, a pastor, a nice looking woman walking down the street or even one of my friends, I am not allowed to, nor would I want to share the intimate details of why my son is in foster care. Second of all, I would not call the woman whom you already know by stated fact is not at all in his life, his 'real' mother. Biological, yes. But she has not been the one up all night with him puking down her back, nor is she the one he turns to when people ask 'Where's mommy?' so please don't give her a title that she is not worthy of.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

How rude! Although I can see how people who don't know any better would say "real" rather than "biological". It's an easier word. People are all about slang these days.

Why can't people just think BEFORE they speak? I'm so sorry, hon. Hugs to you and lil buddy. I hope he's feeling better by the minute, poor lil guy.
