First Bug


Is it just me, or was the whole blog world out last weekend with a stomach bug?  We must have all passed around the germs through the computer monitors.

Last Tuesday night my sweet boy threw up twice.  And again in the morning.  And he stayed sick clear through Sunday.

Actually he’s still not 100%, but he seems to be doing better as of yesterday.

I felt so bad seeing him like that. On Thursday night he just cried and cried.  I’m not one of those moms who typically cries when my baby is crying (ex. when he gets vaccines), because I think it just freaks him out more, and it’s my job to be the strong one and assure him it’s alright.  But on Thursday I actually did let a couple tears fall, because no matter what I did I couldn’t get him to stop crying, and it broke my heart.  But I quickly stopped, because I was right – it did freak him out more.  Wyatt hates seeing me cry.

I also happened to throw up on Thursday, and by Friday we were all three sick together. 

Normally I wouldn’t consider this blog-post worthy, but we just don’t get sick in this family – it’s been forever since I’ve caught anything.  And Derek never throws up.  And this is the first time Wyatt has ever been sick.

I’m actually pretty proud of the fact that we made it past a year old before Wyatt got sick for the first time!  He must have a good little immune system, because I’m not one of those moms who walks around with anti-bacterial wipes either, and we made it pretty far before the inevitable first bug.

On Thursday night my mom brought me my mail, and what do you think I found?  The sweetest card from my blog friend Melanie!  She is starting a “Random Acts Of Kindness Tag”, and she wrote me the most encouraging note.  The arrival was very timely since we were having a rough day too.

Country Roads

Now I’ve been “tagged” to send someone else a piece of encouragement.  I try to randomly surprise people in the mail occasionally, but it’s been a while and this was a good reminder.  So now I just have to decide who to “tag”.

If you don’t read Melanie’s blog, you really should – she’s one of the sweetest bloggers I know.  Stop by and say hello to her!

And that’s it for now.  Sorry for the lack of pictures in this post, but I’m just feeling lazy this morning and Mr. Wyatt is calling.  You know how that goes!

Not just you friend....our family was the same. I have been somewhat non existent in the blog world for the last month- Abbie got sick 2-3 weeks ago with a stomach bug and the end of last week with a fever, cough, turned into bronchiolitis which she is now using an inhaler for....excited for winter sicknesses to be gone!!! Hope your family is starting to feel a little better!! Oh and I know what you mean about the crying thing...I shed a few tears also cause I felt so awful for her (that was even during her throwing up on me!)

We had the stomach bug too, all 3 of us and it was the first time my daughter was sick and it was AWFUL! Babies throwing up is just horrible. Then sick parents on top of that is the worst. I'm glad everyone is on the mend for you.

Random acts of kindness always seem to come at just the right time!

I've been away from the blog world for longer than I care to mention. I'm hoping to catch back up with some of the blogs I had started to follow :)
I hope you are all feeling better. My family had it last month. My little boy is 2 and it's the first time he's had a stomach bug. I think it freaked him out, he keeps talking about throwing up.

I am so sad for you and Wyatt, poor guy!! I hope he gets 100% better shortly. I think it is sometimes hardest on the mamas

Wow!!!! That is pretty impressive though going a whole year without a sick little guy... God is watching over you! Hope you are on the mend now and MUCH MUCH better!!!!

Melanie said...

So sorry to hear you guys all were sick!! I know how you and Makayla caught Damons cold he's had for a couple weeks over the weekend (her first cold too)! AHH!! Its definately that time of the year for sure!! I'm glad you got your card in the mail..I hoped it lifted your spirits at just the right time and it sounds like it did! Thanks for the mention! :-)

That's so great you made it over a year without him getting sick! I'm not a germaphobe at all and don't carry the hand sanitizer around and I don't think I will when kids start appearing.

I hope you're feeling better and kick the sickness in its teeth. haha

Holler! Ha! I just finally updated my blog with a post about D getting the flu... I am so praying that Dustin and I don't get it. Ahhhh. Hope you are all feeling better by now.

So sorry you all were sick and that we didn't get to see you! Glad everyone's feeling better :)

Lauren said...

Poor baby! I hope we go that long without Elyse getting sick! I'm so glad the flu season has been mild this year...I can't imagine a newborn having the flu!

Isn't it so weird having your first baby be sick? I felt the same way. You just feel so bad for them, and then if you are sick, too, it seems so much worse. But glad everyone is doing better.
