Sick Days


Mr. Ramsey has had some sort of nasty virus this entire past week. It started Monday with a vomiting episode all over himself and his car seat. He loves milk so you can imagine the stench of full tummy of it being unleashed everywhere. The diarrhea started that day too. Each morning and most naps I have been greeted by little man saying "uh oh" as the absolutely disgusting mess has escaped the boundaries of the diaper. We've had lots of bedding changes, been through lots of diapers, wipes, and pairs of shorts. Poor kid. I called the nurses line on Wednesday to see what I could do for him or if I should bring him in. She said it sounded like a virus and there was really not much they can do and for me to give it 5-7 days and keep him hydrated. Thankfully he is drinking well but not eating a whole lot. He is already a little guy so it breaks my heart to see him so slim from this stinky virus but I'm praying he will be better soon. He is acting fairly good and still wants to play some but is very clingy and super sweet! So there are perks but I'll take WILD man back as this week has made me realize full craziness means he is feeling good. He had to stay home from play school on Wednesday which was probably the worst day of it. He threw up all over me and the living room that morning. Thank goodness for leather furniture! Last night we went to my Dad's football game in Gainesville and Ramsey had diarrhea down his legs while running around and at dinner at a big restaurant he vomited an entire tummy of blue Gatorade everywhere. So we hadn't even made it to the game yet and we were already on our 2nd outfit. We wouldn't have taken him but he was acting like he had more energy. We did make it for 1/2 of the game and Ramsey seemed to enjoy it with no accidents at the game, thank goodness. So this has literally been a very stinky week. I'm hoping he'll be 100% soon. Anyone else had an episode of a virus lasting 5-7 days?

So sorry he has been so sick. I know that is no fun, but at least you have had a snuggly man. Hope he gets it out of his system soon. Its just that time of year when all the kiddos seem to pick up some sort of nasty bug. Kaden & Kendall have both been snotty this week. I constantly need tissues b/c when either of them sneeze its like a volcano has ruptured!!!!

Poor Ramsey! I hope he is feeling better soon! Be careful, round 2 could mean Momma gets sick!

Oh my god. That virus sounds like the worst thing you could possibly get. Poor Ramsey! I know the pain of endless vomiting and bed changes. Been there myself with Finley. You don't know whether to laugh or cry or just try to run away. Hope things perk up soon and he is all better! Pat yourself on the back for making it through.
