What is worse than 2 little girls with pneumonia?!...

How about when one of them wakes up at 4:45am with the stomach flu as well!!  ...Seriously?!

On the plus side, last night was the first night in a while that Venily actually slept through the night!  However, kids throwing up is gross.  Lucky for us, this was the first time we've had to deal with a sick child throwing up (but probably not the last time).  And Jason did the majority of it while I cleaned up everything (repeatedly) while gagging and trying not to throw up myself.  [Jenn- I don't know how you do it, especially when you have all 5 sick at once!  I actually thought about that this morning while I was cleaning everything up, lol!]

The throwing up episodes lasted a couple of hours, with her throwing up every 20 minutes or so.  Then we brought both girls in to the doctor's for their follow up pneumonia vists.  Dr Bauer did exams for both of the girls and they look good.  He looked over Venily's xrays from Children's though and is still not 100% convinced that she has pneumonia.  He kept saying things like "it just doesn't add up" and "this is so weird" since Venily has almost zero pneumonia symptoms besides the chest pain.  But, since she seems to be getting better on the antibiotics, we're going to continue with that and hope it fixes everything!  She only complained once last night for a few seconds that her chest hurt and only complained once again today, and it wasn't nearly as bad as it had been!

We decided to keep Ven home from school again today b/c she is CRABBY and emotional still (though she wasn't yesterday).  Uhhh!  Hoping to be able to send her tomorrow b/c she's driving me crazy!

Haven perked right back up!  She ate a piece of bread.  Then some crackers, then 2 popsicles and was STARVING by lunchtime so she ate macaroni and cheese and carrots as well and hasn't had any problems since this morning (thank goodness!)!  Hopefully that is done and over with! *fingers crossed*  (And please oh please oh please don't let Venily get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

  1. lol! Yeah, puking kids is definitly one of the things I hate most about parenting!! Once they are a bit older (like Venily's age) you can teach them to puke in a bucket, and then it is MUCH easier to clean up!!
