Vomit and Diarrhea

Now I know why I was so tired yesterday. Starting at about 11:00pm I had to occupy the porcelain throne repeatedly. After about 45 minutes of repeated visits, I was just about to leave the bathroom when I heard Capt. Adorable wake and cry. I quickly went to get him and he vomited all over himself and me. I called Captain Obvious to come up from down stairs, and by the time he arrived I was already beginning to heave, which I was able to control myself until I made it to the sink....yeach. Capt. Obvious showered Captain Adorable while I showered myself.

When the three of us finally got into bed, Capt. Adorable immediately cuddled up with me (which I did not want because I knew I'd be up again). I was freezing cold, because of so much time spent in the bathroom, and could not get warm while I was in bed because I had to be careful of not pulling the blankets over my little one's face...I got up several more times. I had to sit on the toilet with a big bowl in my lap. Horrible. The last time I got up, at about 4:00, the vomit in the bowl was full of blood. I must have really hurt my throat with all that vomiting. I am exhausted and sore from constantly having to lie in only one position (or else Capt. Adorable sleep-crawls over to me for snuggles and I have to turn over anyhow, before he wakes up looking for Mama).

My Mom and Captain Adorable were both sick the day before, but I thought I was fine. Guess not.

Captain Obvious stayed home from work today to look after Capt. Adorable so I could sleep and recover. The diarrhea has not stopped. I think my body has decided to do another colonoscopy prep. (Just kidding.) Of course, the fact that I am not eating anything has certainly slowed production, if you know what I mean...

Oh you poor, poor thing! If you're vomiting blood, you need to go see a doctor!!!!! At the very least they could give you something to stop the diarrhea so you don't get too dehydrated.

I wish you ate chicken soup, I would make some for you!

I just got over something that sounds very similar--I vomited and had diarrhea for 14 hours straight and finally had to go to the hospital. I got an IV full of drugs and it took 3 bags of fluid to get me feeling anywhere close to normal. I was diagnosed with shigella--maybe you should see a doctor...

Sounds like Wednesday was a tough one. I hope you're feeling better now, yes?
