spoke too soon

I was given false hope when I wasn't that sick on Thursday, but yesterday I was hit with the full force of the stomach flu. I must have gotten sick 40-50 times yesterday, and around 7pm I actually passed out on the bathroom floor. I tried to drink fluids, but sometime in the afternoon my milk dried up and poor Josie would sit on my boob endlessly looking for more food. It was awful.

Gabe seemed a little better yesterday, but as evening approached his diarrhea and vomiting started up again and today he has been a disaster. He doesn't even have the strength to walk around or play. It is terribly pitiful.

Josh is running back and forth between the two of us, trying to make everyone feel better, take care of Josie, and keep both himself and Josie from catching this latest stomach bug.

We're a bundle of fun over here, huh?

When I read the title I thought - great things are actually ok and you all got better...alas sorry things are so shit for you at the moment. I hope it ALL gets better soon. This sounds awful. If I could come and help in some way I could!

Oh God ~ I am SO very sorry for what you're going through. I hope and pray that Josh and Josie don't get it. (Or that Josie doesn't get the chicken pox.) Sounds like things are a mess at your house right now (literally). I will pray for you tonight!

how awful!! I hope you are all feeling better soon and that the dreaded virus doesn't spread to your hubby or baby girl.

Oh you poor thing!

I had a horrible virus like that once when I had a small nursing baby and went to the ER where they pumped me up with IV fluids. It made a world of difference and saved my milk supply.
