Caden has been so sick!!! He got rotovirus from the children's museum on Thursday night I think. He started on Friday with vomitting at least every 5 to 10 minutes for the entire night. Needless to say I had to call in sick all weekend.
I talked to his pediatrician on Monday who said that he should be admitted to the hospital for IV fluids, but he knew how hard that would be for me with the other kids. We agreed to try forcing gatoraid in him with a syringe since he would NOT drink it. That went over really well........I am sure the neighbours thought I was killing him with the screams. At least it helped a bit and his mouth was not dry. He couldn't even wet his little lips before that his mouth was so dry.
Whenever he would throw up he would look at me all pathetic and say "sorry mommy". Broke my heart to see him like this.
He is still sick, but getting better slowly every day.
This is very contagious and I am just hoping that the other kids don't catch it or I am moving far away from the city of poopopolous!!!!
My whole house is going to need to be steam cleaned when we are done. It was so bad, I had resorted to wearing Bob's shorts on Sunday as he had pooped or puked on all my clothes!
