Bad Week!

Well last week was not a fun week for our household. It was supposed to be a short week of school due to Fall break. On Tuesday OD came home from school the same as always. His appetite was not great at dinner (totally normal with our boys who are both poor eaters most of the time) so we coaxed him to finish at least part of his dinner. As bedtime got closer he began to complain of a tummy ache. Again this is not abnormal as he learns and pushes the boundaries of how to get out of doing things. Once he was finally in bed it wasnt thirty minutes before he came running into our room announcing that he had thrown up. Great. Poor daddy got stuck cleaning up the bulk of it since Mommy is still on bed rest. OD proceeded to feel terrible and throw up for about 6 hours. He couldn’t even hold down water! The next day he lay around pretty much all day and ate only a little.

Fast forward to Thursday and the fun begins. To make a long story short Mommy had to call Daddy home from work to watch the boys because she was sick and within the next 5 hours both IC and Daddy were sick as well. Our entire family was fighting for the sink or toilet. I was very happy at this point that we had two bathrooms! Not fun. By Friday Things had settled a little and Mommy’s body was not acting right so we went in to see the doctor. Turned out that mommy was very dehydrated and was beginning to go into labor.

The doctors got Mommy rehydrated and labor stopped but they kept Mommy over night for observation. Poor Daddy took the boys home and they all lay or slept around the house until Mommy called the next morning. It has been a slow recovery process as our systems are still learning to tolerate most foods again. IC in the mean time is still struggling with gross bowel movements so hopefully he will go to the doctor tomorrow to rule out any underlying issues.

We do know that this is not the Flu as Mommy was tested at the doctors office and it came back negative. Baby #3 is still on board and we a just a few short days from 36 weeks. It wont be long now. The Medicine to stop labor will be taken away this week and we shall see what becomes of us.

After all of this came the worst news of the week. That dreaded phone call in the night that Mommy’s dear grandfather had passed away. Not only is Mommy still on bed rest but t he doctor is definitely not supporting any idea of a 4 hour drive with delivery this close at hand. This means that we will not even be able to go to the funeral! This is one lousy week.
