Kyan is doing world’s better now. No more vomiting, no more diarrhea. Wish I could say the same for the incessant whining. I’m not sure what’s up with that but it’s driving me and everyone else crazy. I don’t know if he’s still not feeling 100%, or if it’s due to his schedule being messed up for days on end, or if it’s just another phase I’m not going to like, but he’s being a major whine tit. I love the kid, don’t get me wrong, but somebody please tell me how to get him to stop whining!!
It doesn’t help much that I’ve caught his stomach thing. It hit me I think sometime during the night on Saturday night because I woke up with it Sunday morning. If it weren’t for my mom, I’m not sure we would’ve survived Sunday. I couldn’t get out of bed, literally crawling to the bathroom. Repeatedly. ‘Nuff said about that.
I still had to go to work on Monday, and was miserable the whole day. Food is not my friend. I’m also at work today (Tuesday), and managing to get thru it. Not happy about it, but I don’t have any choices. I started sucking on mints this morning because I remember someone telling me once (my grandma, maybe?) that sucking mints was good for nausea. And it is helping, some. I’ve blown thru probably half a pack of lifesavers wint-o-greens already, and if I run out before the end of the day I may need to make a quick run to the store to buy a bag of something minty to suck on.
I’m also (and this is our little secret -- shhhhhh) sitting with my jeans unbuttoned. Nobody can see, nobody knows but me (and anyone on the ‘net who cares), but honestly – when your stomach has been upset for a few days, you don’t want the waistband of jeans digging into it. And they do, when you sit, even if they’re loose. Which these are.
Or maybe that’s just me and my gut… but regardless, if nobody knows then it doesn’t matter and it’s soooooo much more comfortable!
My rockin’ mom, who saved my ass on Sunday taking care of J & K (incessantly whining and crying) made homemade chicken soup last night. And it was so yummy! But my tummy wasn’t quite ready, so that kind of sucked. I packed some up to bring for lunch today, but since food still isn’t my friend, I’m afraid it’s not going to get eaten. Which really is too bad because my mom makes the BEST chicken soup on the planet. I swear.
At this point, I’m just hanging on for warmer weather when the germies will likely leave us alone. I think we’ve had our share of sickness this year – and then some. Hopefully soon everyone will be feeling all better again and this sick season will be behind us!
