|Pukey McGee on her first birthday|
We got ourselves cleaned up and both changed into clean clothes and the three of us laid in my bed, when rounds three and four occurred. Sheets were changed, towels were washed and Marlo was in her 5th (no joke) pair of pajamas for the night. She finally fell back to sleep around 10:30; horizontally between my husband and I in our bed. Not a good night sleep for anyone.
And that was the beginning of a second terrible stomach virus for Marlo...we thought we were in the clear when she finally stopped throwing up Friday night, but when it began again Saturday morning, we decided to pull the plug on the big fiesta that I had planned so long and hard for. And that is when my Mom got sick...and then later that day, I got sick...and then in the middle of the night, my husband got sick. We joke now that if we did go through with the party, it would have been like that horrible scene in Stand By Me where everyone throws up on each other.
For 5 straight days we battled with the throwing up, until this morning we finally saw the light. Marlo seems to be back in action with an appetite to match. Thankfully this bout with the stomach virus didn't land us in the hospital because despite not keeping anything down, she managed to stay hydrated. Thanks to lots of Pepto, Pedialyte, Ginger Ale and toast we are all finally back to normal.
Unfortunately I can't say the same for a dear friend that stopped by on Saturday to say hello! Whoops!
