i am so sick of sick.
it seems like either one of us or all of us have been sick all the time for the last few months.
i am sick of it.
a couple of weeks ago, when i went to the doctor, they said i had a sinus infection.
took antibiotics for 10 days, and felt better for a couple of days.
friday came around, and the doctor appointment that told us i didn't have cancer (yay!)
sam was SO sweet, and ended up coming home from work and surprised us at the doctors office by showing up, when i didn't think he would.
i love that man.
anyway, we decide to celebrate, and spend the day together. so after doing a few errands, we met up with my cousin and her kids at her house, and spent some time with them.
we then went to a park, out to dinner, and then decided to catch a movie at the dollar theater.
puss in boots.
cute and funny movie.
bubba was acting really tired, and wanted to snuggle on my lap.
after the movie, we headed home and decided to play games together.
bubba was acting kind of funny, and i should have known what was up, but alas.
he kept going from sitting/laying on the couch, into the kitchen to get a drink, into the bathroom to just stand there. i asked him if he needed to use the bathroom, which he replied with "i don't know".
about a minute later, i turn to look at him, and see him throwing up.
i run in, lift up the toilet lid, and hold him over the toilet while he proceeds to throw up 3 times his volume.
it was insane.
seriously. i didn't know a kid could throw up that much.
where did he hold it?!
strip down his clothes, and draw up a bath for him. he just lays in it. no energy.
we clean him up, get him out, go to get him dressed.
round 2 hit.
luckily, sam had the bowl right there so it didn't get anywhere but the bowl.
we get him water, and get a bed set up for him in our front room.
10 minutes later, round 3.
but now, not only are we dealing with throwing up, but he's decided that he needs to go to the bathroom.
he proceeds to throw up every 10-15 minutes until he has absolutely nothing left in him.
then it's just dry heaving.
then sips of water.
then throwing up that water.
this continued for about 5 hours.
then a fever set in.
he was up most of that night. saturday morning, he finally slept some.
saturday afternoon, he took a 3 hour nap.
i've never seen him so mopey, and tired.
i spent most of saturday snuggling him, and trying to keep him comfortable.
saturday evening, he kept saying he was hungry, we tried to get him to eat chicken and stars and some bread.
took his first bite, and ran for the bowl.
here we go again.
luckily he just threw up that once on saturday night.
sunday he was much better. we still just took it easy.
monday, my tummy felt a little off, but not sick.
monday night, sam tells me he doesn't feel good.
i went up to bed so he could rest downstairs without me bugging him.
i got a call at 5 in the morning.
"i am thirsty, and need more water, but i can't get up and get it"
apparently he had been throwing up for 4 hours and didn't wake me up until he absolutely had to.
so tuesday, sam was down sick.
wednesday, he woke up, and all he felt was tired. so he headed back to work, and has been fine since.
then this morning, i woke up with my sinus's completely stuffed and unable to breathe again.
i am so sick of this.
please sickness, just leave my house and don't come back for a while.
i would really like us to be healthy for a couple of weeks!!
