SICK SICK SICK!!!!!!!!!!

I am here and alive. BARELY. This has been the worst five days ever. After I wrote my last post, Colin woke up on Thursday morning literally covered from head to toe in vomit and diarrhea (sorry in advance for this gross post!). I spent the whole day cleaning his room from top to bottom. The poor little angel was so sick and it literally broke my heart. By Thursday night, I just managed to get Colin into bed before it hit me like a ton of bricks. I have can honestly say that I have not been that sick in probably 12 years or so. After several hours of throwing up, I called my mom in a panic. My saint of a mama got in her car and drove to me in the middle of the night. She arrived at 3:30 in the morning and it was the most wonderful moment of my life. Before I knew it, she was putting ice cold wash clothes on my forehead and scurrying around me making everything better. Thank the Lord above for Mama's, that is all I have to say about that. I was up sick for 12 hours straight, so no sleep for me. Friday is a complete blur of my mother taking care of both of us. Colin was better on Friday, but woke up throwing up again yesterday morning, so we spent the better part of the day at the children's urgent care place. Once we finally made it home, we had to disinfect everything in the whole house. Then my poor wonderful mother comes down with it late last night! UGH!!!!! Seriously, this is HORRIBLE!!! Jer just got home from his work trip a couple of hours ago, so I am sure that he will have it by tomorrow, although I am sure praying that he somehow avoids it.

Colin is not well, but he is getting better. He has not thrown up today, which is such a blessing. He got some great pills from the doctor yesterday that melt on his tongue to help with the nausea and vomiting and those have been a huge help. I can't wait for him to be kills me to see the light out of his eyes like this! I feel like our house is under siege at the moment!! I do feel much better today, so that is good news. What a MESS!!!

Oh, that sounds terrible! I am keeping my fingers crossed that Jeremy doesn't get it too, and I hope the rest of you get better soon!

Wow, your mom is a saint! That is so wonderful she was able to come in town. I remember this past February, ALL THREE OF US got the flu and I don't know what I would have done if my mom hadn't been in town that week. Gabby had never been that sick before and David and I were too sick to take care of her. And same as return we passed it on to my poor mom!

Being sick sucks, but we sure are lucky to have great mamas!

Oh my gosh Chalna that is the WORST. You aren't lying...thank goodness for moms. I hope you and Colin are back at 100% tomorrow and that your hubby somehow avoids the plague! EEK.
