Why doesn't this ever happen on Friday's?

Jasmine allowed me to get a few hours of sleep before waking me up. I was so excited when Shawn said he wouldn't be go anywhere today so he could watch the baby and let me sleep. I was thinking there would be no reason for Jasmine to wake up before me. First thing she asked for was a glass of water. That's always a sign from her. She was complaining of a sore throat and eventually, a stomach ache. I didn't really think much of it because she started acting normal but still occasionally saying they hurt. We went to Target to get a few things and then headed to get some food. She suddenly started feeling really badly after we sat down to eat. I knew it was bad when she never reached for a mozzarella stick. She didn't touch anything for dinner and hadn't eaten anything else today either. Rather than put her through grocery shopping, we just went home. She had a fever and was crying because her tummy hurt. Then she threw up but I couldn't be sure if it was from freaking out or something else. Then she did it again an hour later... in my lap. No warning at all either. Since then she's been ok. She doesn't seem to have a fever anymore or if she does, it's a low one. And she's eaten an apple, even though everything in me screamed don't give that to her when she's been puking. I hope this is just a short thing and that no one else gets it. It's bad enough taking care of her while she's puking but add a five week old baby to it and it's overwhelming. I'm not worried about throwing up and actually have no plans of doing any such thing. You're wondering how I plan on avoiding it? I have phenegren on hand. The first sign that I'm getting pukey, I'm downing one of those suckers. I would literally walk on hot coals to avoid throwing up. I would be a very bad bulimic. Although if this keeps up, I may end up a sympathetic vomiter. One can only handle cleaning up a certain amount of someone else's vomit before it takes a toll on one's stomach.

I hear you! I have a really hard time with puke. YUK!! My oldest has a puke phobia! No kidding! She avoids it at all costs and will walk home if someone in the car complains of an upset stomach! It's kind of funny, but actually a serious issue at times. She sometimes thinks people will puke on an airplane or in a bar, etc. So, she won't travel...Arrgggh! Hope Jasmine is better soon and that Evan doesn't get whatever it is! Hang in there Mama!

"Sympathy vomiting." LOL Remind me to tell you the story sometime of a coworker's "chain vomiting" tale. I've never forgotten it!

Hope Jazz feels better by now.

Hugs, Beth

Skye used to called the hose. Whenever she got sick she would hose everything within a 5ft radius of her. Think Exorist...so I learned to not be a sympathy vomiter. If for no other reason than I had enough to clean up already. Hope she's feeling better now hon! (Hugs)Indigo
