Sick, Part III

What a rough summer it has been for our family, physically speaking! In June Olivia got hit with a nasty stomach bug at the family reunion, and then last month we passed a bad cold around. And now my poor baby is sick yet again!

Just before suppertime last evening, Livvie began throwing up, and it continued every 20 minutes or so until 10:30 p.m. I braced myself for a through-the-night session, but thankfully it was only a few times. (But you know how it is... every time she stirs or whimpers, you jump up and grab for the trash can!)

So far today she's been vomit-free; she's kept her breakfast toast down, as well as her echinacea and a fair amount of fluids (amped up with probiotics!). As I made the kids' final lunch preparations just a few minutes ago, I glanced in on her and found this:

Guess the night was rough for both of us.

Get well Livvie. Feel so badly for you all.

Hope tonight is a better night for ya.

Being sick in the summer is the worst. We have been passing around a cold in our house for 2 weeks. I've had it the whole time. I'm still waiting for the cough to quit.
