Poppy came down with it on Saturday and it hit my girl hard and fast. She threw up every twenty minutes for several hours, and then it tapered off. She is the one though, with the least reserves, weighing in at a mere 31 pounds (at almost 4 years old) prior to getting sick. She was a bit more perky yesterday, then threw up in the night again. This morning she was so weak she couldn't walk and still refused to eat anything for fear of "barfing". Poor little thing. She's been on the couch all day, and I've been giving her alternating spoons of fruit juice and broth every five minutes.She's kept in all down and seems to be a little more lively than earlier today. If she doesn't continue to improve I will call our doctor. She's is asleep at the moment.
Oh, and somewhere in there I was sick too. Saturday night, I guess. I laid on the couch all day yesterday and Erik took care of the kids. Today he's on the couch, resting and not feeling too well. We just had a good laugh when one of his co-workers called up to tell him he won a Wii and a WiiFit in a contest sponsored by his employer. The joke was that if he won it we'd have to buy a television so that we could use it! I wonder if it could be hooked up to the computer monitor?
Anyway, we appreciate your prayers very, very much, especially for our little Poppy to recover quickly and regain her strength. Thanks to all!
