Finally feeling human.
Ugh. This weekend was SO not pretty in my household.
Saturday evening, Nolan started puking. It was a bit frightful to see all that ickiness coming out of something so small. Poor kid. Luckily, it passed quickly – started at 5pm, over it by bedtime.
Then came Sunday night. It was down right u-g-l-y. At around 11pm I started puking. A couple hours later, Brandon started with it. We were miserable. Couldn’t even keep water down. I can not remember the last time I was that sick. Luckily, Brandon’s dad was in town for the weekend so he entertained Nolan while Brandon and I lay on our sickbed. I had to look over at Brandon once and laugh – I told him I felt like the old people in Willie Wonka who all share a bed and are sitting there like invalids. Shortly after, Brandon’s dad started getting sick.
Poor Nolan just wanted to play and none of us could do it, every time I got up to play with him I would get the pukies again. Luckily, my mom was passing through and grabbed Nolan for a day or two so we would be able to recuperate. Last night seemed to be the turning point. Today I’m feeling human again – weak and full of body aches, but human. Brandon’s still fighting the stomach ache, but I think he’s on the mend too.
I seriously can not remember being that sick. I’m grateful that it only lasted 24 hours, but it’s a 24 hours I would rather not live through again. Hopefully my next post is on a more happy note.
