Everything Falls Apart Then I Get to Try to Put it Back Together

We are all still alive.

I never got very sick, mainly because I decided fuck that shit and refused to eat. Which, hey! Totally works! Who knew starvation could be a friend? And I totally lost the Easter weight so added bonus!

Of course, now I'm back to being my gluten-free foodie self. (Piggy likes to eat. Swooeee! Swooeee!)

Sunday Lego love

Having sick children is quite an interesting fiasco. I'm use to the atopic dermatitis, the food allergies, the occasional runny nose and sensory issued meltdowns.

But I've never quite willed someone to have solid poop. Or please, for the love of everything good and holy (or demonic and evil -- however you choose), will you please just not puke anymore this hour. Darwin experienced five days of puking and six days of diarrhea. And I experienced the joys of cleaning all that up in the house and the van and Griffin's school and in the driveway and at Whole Foods.

Being stuck in a vortex of disgusting germ-infested bodily fluids is not a fun place to be. And hopefully, I will not be sucked back into it anytime soon.

That sounds really . . . not fun. Glad to hear it looks like the end of it. And, hey, weight loss is a bonus!

I just can't believe that he was that sick that long. Poor Darwin.

And, hurray, for losing weight. Sorry you had to be sick doing so.

What a nightmare. May your children's poop be solid, and may there be no more vomiting. (waving my hand vaguely in an impressive fashion)

WOW! That sounds awful. I'm impressed you were able to keep him hydrated through all that. You must be magic momma. :)
Glad things are looking better now.

Holy hell.


I really hope it's over for the clean ups now. I've been there.
