Why Keith had to wear one of my shirts

What a day! I am posting now becuase tomoorow I will be nursing my poor baby back to health.

I admit it, I have been spoiled. I have been blessed. I have a miracle baby. He is 19 months old, and for the first time in his precious little life, got sick. He had the fever and the lunch losing, and the confusion as to why he was sick, and why I couldn't just kiss him and make it all better. Yet he suffered it all with so much patience and mellowness. So long as I was near, or he could be held by me, it was alright. Honestly, it breaks my heart. I know that so many other mothers have had sick babies or even sickly babies, buy I have never had to deal with that... until today as we were an hour into our two hour drive. Yet once we got there and he let some more of his lunch up into the grass, he sat patiently for the two hours of graduation, only asking for a drink once. He is such a good sweet little thing, I hate when he is sick. It really just breaks my heart. So, I am dedicating my day to cuddling him, and waiting on him, and doing everything I can think of to make him more comfortable and happy.

So, happy Saturday, my friends! Enjoy it and let me know all the fun you had, and then I will let you know of all the wonderful bonding Keith and I did. We will have a show and tell on Monday when we come back to the blogging world!

Kisses,

Yuck, I am so sorry for you and Keith. Maybe some of my girls' luck is rubbing onto Keith. My girls are sick, it seems almost constantly. They get better and a few days later, wham, they're sick again. It's so hard when your little one looks up at you with those sad eyes, asking 'why can't you help me?' Oh, my pediatrician said the stomach flu is going around. It's not pretty. Sounds like that's what Keith has. Try pedialyte. My girls won't drink it though, but they will drink water with a crystal lite mix in. The doctor was okay with them drinking that since it's sugar free. I am praying for a spedy recovery for Keith.

Poor kid! I hope he gets feeling better soon. That's awesome though that he went 19 months without getting sick, simply amazing!

Sheryl,
You are so sweet. He is doing much better today. I guess it was only a few hours type sick thing. Thanks for your concern.

Emily,
Ahem, I let him eat food off the floor to build up his immune system, ahem. Now it has worked thus far, so no calling CPS! I also let him run around barefoot, and play outside in lots of dirt knowing it will build his immune system. I know it isn't considered kosher, but it seems to be working. :) I know we are pretty darn lucky for him having not been sick before, and especially only having been sick for a few hours this time. What blessings.

Brea,
Oh you poor thing! I am so sorry about your girls! I hope they can get rid of whatever bug they have once and for all, and due to their constant illnesses, they can have an immunity to all others. Thank you all for your well wishing. You ladies are all so awesome!

Feel better Keith!!! Amy, Thomas had the flu weekend and it was not fun! I think it's a 48-hour bug, so hopefully he's feeling back to normal soon! :)
