I need a bio-hazard suit
Last night was quite eventful. Logan & I hung out around the house after the cheesecake party. It was terribly hot again & I was incredibly grumpy. I felt like the wicked witch, muttering about how much I hate our house. Logan was whiny too, which didn't help.
I made him dinner & he threw most of it all over the floor. I had had it up to my eyeballs with the food throwing, so I told him that if he wasn't going to eat, then fine. He would go to bed without dinner. I gave him a bath & he went to sleep without resistance.
Bill came home an hour & a half later. Right about then, Logan was waking up, crying off & on for an hour. We thought he might have been too hot, so we took a fan from the kitchen & brought it up to his room, where he now had two. That didn't work. He still kept whining. Bill & I had a "discussion" about whether he was hungry or not. Frustrated, I told Bill that he could do whatever he wanted, he just had to brush Logan's teeth again before putting him back to bed.
Bill got Logan out of bed & made him a sippy cup of milk. It was 10:30pm & way past Logan's bed time. He sat on Bill's lap only taking a couple of sips of milk & mostly cuddling. A few minutes later, he jumped off Bill's lap & climbed up onto mine. Then, he turned green & puked all over me, the couch & the carpet. I jumped up & got him on the tile where he could continue to be sick. After a few more minutes, I got him upstairs & into the bath while Bill cleaned up the living room.
After getting Logan cleaned up, I wrapped him up in a towel & we cuddled in the bathroom (just in case he got sick again). You know when your toddler isn't feeling well by the quality of the cuddle. He was listless, snuggly & pale with heavy purple eyelids. The boy was downright ill.
We gave him a sip of pedialyte being worried about dehydration with the heat. He took a couple of sips & we cuddled some more to make sure it stayed down. After a few minutes, I got him back into bed, tucked him in & went back in the living room to help Bill clean up. Not more than a minute later, I was back upstairs cleaning Logan up, changing his sheets & freaking out because he was choking on his vomit. I had to turn him over onto his side. Twice.
It was getting close to midnight & Logan was still actively sick. I was very worried that I wouldn't be able to hear him over baby monitor with the constant hum of the many fans in the two bedrooms. Bill made a bed for me on Logan's floor & I had a sleepover in his room. It freaked me out that he had choked & I wanted to make sure I was right there if it happened again. Which it did.
This morning he woke up at the crack of dawn & feeling a little bit better. He doesn't have an appetite, but he is drinking quite a bit. He's also been sleeping for most of the day. I had to leave him home with Bill while I went to the gym to train & then I had a board meeting right after. Logan slept most of the 4 hours I was gone. I came home & he was still tired & has been sleeping for another 2 hours.
I hope that this is just some funky 24 hour virus & it doesn't last all week like the Christmas Flu we all experienced. I do not want us to be continually sick in the summer heat. YUCK.
