Yeah, I know, it comes with the territory. When Evan was a baby, I had mom less than 5 minutes away, and I took advantage of that. This time though, she is 5 *hours* away. :sigh:

We have all been sick as dogs. Sunday night, Evan went to bed, and about an hour later, he was calling me, telling me he needed help. I went upstairs, and he had thrown up in his bed. (this is a kid who has thrown up *1* other time in his LIFE- other than spitting up) He seemed to feel fine though, and he went back to bed and slept through the night. Well, unfortunately, dh and I did NOT feel fine, and did NOT sleep through the night. We were both up vomiting for most of the night. I even gave Lauren a bottle of formula (which I never ever did with Evan) because I was scared I would have to go throw up in the middle of nursing her. Monday, dh and I were both useless. It was all we could do to take care of ourselves, and we still had to manage with the kids. Lauren seemed to avoid getting sick at all, and Evan seemed to feel fine on Monday, so that was a good thing at least. I didn't want either of them to feel as horrible as we did.

And now Lauren has decided that she doesn't want to sleep anymore. Ever. Oh and did I mention dh went back to work yesterday? Yeah, I am a real pleasant person to be around.

Oh Julie, I am so sorry. Being sick sucks, esp. when you're a mom and can't get a break. Wish I could help you!! It sucks not having family around, doesn't it???

I'm sorry for how hard things are right now. It's awfully trite and most likely not particularly helpful to say they will get better.

Now, if only I could apply those thoughts to my own situtation.
