Hi all, we've had a miserably sick couple of days, culminating in a trip to the ER last night so that we could get some nausea meds and fluids. Neither Rich nor me could keep anything down and we were fast becoming dehydrated. Raf had been sick since Thursday - with projectile vomiting and diarrhea. Since he wasn't in awful sprits we weren't too worried. Raf has yet to cut a tooth and we thought that he might be teething, but yesterday Rich and I became afflicted with the same thing - only it was much worse. I guess those mama milk antibodies help in many ways.
We wouldn't usually go to the ER! but we felt pretty desperate as could not keep even an ice chip down and Raf was needing his milkies. being a mama when you're sick - and when you're child is sick too - is a real challenge. It would have been easier if Rich was healthy but he was just as bad. Thank goodness my parents were here, My mum cleaned up my sick and took care of Raf for a couple of hours when we came home this morning..
Here's raf asleep in his hospital bed!
