I feel like I’ve been away for quite a while. Sorry about that. If things couldn’t get worse since my last post, Easton puked the next day, while I was feeding him dinner. We didn’t think much of it, took his temperature and it was only 99*F. They start to worry once it gets to 102*F for babies. The rest of the night was fine, then the next day, John started puking and spending a lot of time on the toilet after work and through the night. He tried to lay down upstairs and get some rest, and I took care of EJ. This virus had been going around town lately, so it wasn’t too unexpected, but it still sucked. It was getting to be after 10PM and I fed Easton a bottle, and a couple snacks and he was playing in his high chair. I was about to pick him up and take him upstairs to go to bed when he started puking again I cleaned him up, called John downstairs and was comforting EJ on the floor when he puked again. And so did John. Okay, time to go to the ER.
We packed up and headed out a little after 11PM to the ER here on post, and ended up waiting like 2 hours before being seen. Gotta love it. Luckily, Easton didn’t have any more problems, but John had to keep making trips to the restroom. After we were finally seen, they gave John some anti-nausea medication in with his IV as he was dehydrated. I mean, if you were (excuse my language) puking and shitting your guts out, you’d be pretty dehydrated too! Easton ate a bottle and kept it down, so they didn’t give him anything. I’m sitting there thinking, “oh great, I’m totally getting this tomorrow…” and what do you know? I did! The next day I spent my entire day losing fluids but luckily I was able to take a good nap, which kept my trips to the bathroom down, which John wasn’t able to do the day before.
I’ve still been recovering over the last few days… been feeling nauseous and stomach has been achy but luckily it hasn’t been as bad as those few hours. I never want to do that again!
In other news, Easton was feeding himself some carrots earlier today :D I will post the video in my next blog, which I hope to do soon.
