Stomach Bug 2012

The resting I talked about in the last post... well didn't happen as much as I would have liked.  The tiredness I was feeling last Monday was the start of a kidney infection brought on by extreme intact of caffiene and sugar to keep me going (and you guessed it, stress).

I was out of commission for about 3 days.  Drank nothing but water and a little bit of organic no sugar added cranberry juice.  That stuff is NASTY!

My little girl came down with a yucky stomach bug that's been going around.  She threw up a total of 10 times over the course of about 4.5 hours.  We stayed up and watched corny movies, tried to sleep on the couch together (she did, I didn't) and got up at around 5 AM.  I had to go get the hubby at about 6 AM because I just couldn't stay awake any longer.

I napped from about 6:30 to about 8:30. I literally dreamed my husband came to wake me up because he needed me for something.  I went out and he said, "why are you awake?"  I said you just came to get me.  Oh tricky sleep deprived mind.

So today we have been napping, feeding our girl very little but with lots of water and pedialyte, cleaning/disinfecting, slathering ourselves with essential oils to prevent us from getting it as well.  Both the hubby and I have had some tummy twitches, but we are praying they pass quickly.  We don't need to have a full blown stomach bug later in the week because of my sweet cousin's wedding.

That's where we are right now.  Have a healthy week everyone!
