Mommy can spit up, too!

We are in Columbus for Christmas. When I woke up this morning, I was feeling very sick and I went into the bathroom thinking I was going to throw up. I used my mind over matter thing I learned from being pregnant and eventually the shaking, racing heart, and impulse to gag myself subsided.

When I exited the bathroom, I learned that three other people had thrown up over the night. I ate a banana and then went to lie down again because I was feeling dizzy. I finally got up around 1pm and had an apple.

I had learned that the only other sick adult had only thrown up once and then felt a lot better. Around 1:45pm, I started feeling sick again. I went into the bathroom, and made myself throw up hoping that it would just be a one time thing and then I would feel better... And it worked! Of course, it has only been twenty minutes, but I already feel a lot better. Maybe I'll be able to enjoy Christmas Eve after all.

Now I am just worried about wee Alex. Last night, one of the sick babies slept in the pack-n-play Alex is using here. I really hope he does not get sick because I cannot imagine him feeling what I just felt.

So be grateful for your health and have a Merry Christmas!

I think it's just the season of sickness :( Jeff and I both had the flu on the same day last week...I was throwing up and had a fever of 103 degrees...thankfully Wyatt didn't get sick at all, a huge blessing...

But anyway, I hope you feel better and Alex doesn't get sick...and have a Merry Christmas! <3

I feel ya...all my family got sick on Christmas, too. Poor Parker is just laying around and has slept ALL day. It stinks when the mommy, daddy and baby don't feel good because there isn't any one feeling well enough to take care of each other. Hope Brandon doesn't get it. FEEL BETTER!

I hate throwing up!
I hope you're feeling better. Being sick on Christmas is awful. I had a sore throat Christmas Eve and all I could think as I was going to sleep was, " No no no no no no."
