Youngest is sick

Ugh...started @ 3AM on Sunday with puking right on my bedroom carpet. Poor thing. She seems to have just a random virus (vomiting, diarrhea) but also had a high fever of 102.7 taken under her arm and a headache. We had her checked out yesterday at the pediatrician with the caution to come back if the fever, vomiting or headache continued. Poor thing.

Thought she was better but she threw up again this morning @8 (just clear liquid.) Ugh.. that makes over 29 hours. The worst part is the randomness of it. She started at 3 AM, then went on to 5:30, 6:30, 7:30 AM then nothing all day Sunday. Sunday night it was 7:30, 9:00 and 9:30. Monday morning @ 4:15. Nothing all day on Monday. I am really glad we took her to the peds since they checked her for strep, flu, and meningitis.

She doesn't have a fever today but still has the occasional headache (probably dehydration) and no energy (not a surprise though.) She did allow me to give her a bath and has eaten a couple of soda crackers. We bought four flavors of Gatorade so that seems to be getting liquids in her - thank goodness.

This is sooooo not fun. All of my plans for the last three days are out the window - parent visitation at Oldest's school, preschool for Youngest, goodie bag items for the Black Rock Retreat, working last night, etc...

Keep your fingers crossed that this is it. My poor little baby.
