My poor little guy came down with the stomach bug last night. Just like Emily, Nathan woke us up in the evening about an hour after he went to bed and he had thrown up. Nate once again volunteered to stay up with him last night and I gratefully accepted. I felt bad but last night was the first night I didn’t have a ton of painful contractions. I knew I needed to get my rest or they would come back. I am so thankful for my amazing husband, thanks hon. I know that was a sacrifice and I very much appreciate it. =)
Nathan was a little easier to deal with than Emily, given that he’s older and you can tell him “Here’s a bucket, aim for that” versus just trying to keep it from going everywhere with Em. It’s still so hard to see your child sick and miserable and know exactly how they feel but also know that you really can’t do anything to help them. Time is the best remedy with this virus. Both guys dozed off and on when they could and this morning Nathan is doing better. He hasn’t vomited in a few hours and so far seems to be holding down some water ok. We’ll try some Jello in a little bit and see how that goes.
