Not again

Yeesh, what a long day. I was looking forward to warm temperatures, playing outside with the dogs and just enjoying the day. My daughter had other ideas. We once again had a day full of unexplained vomiting. All day long she was throwing up on blankets. I had a ton of laundry to do. At least she didn't spike a fever this time. She did almost end up at the doctor's office, at the very least. We were in bed and she said she had to pee and that she wanted me to carry her to the bathroom. Once I got to the bedroom door, I had to set her down to open it. Instead of bearing weight, she just collapsed onto the floor. I sat down with her and her eyes kept rolling up into her head. She was acting like she was just going to go to sleep right there, sitting up. I had to slap her in the face a few times to get her to respond. We went to the bathroom but she just sat on the toilet and kept doing the same thing with her eyes going up into her head. Eventually she said she wanted to go back to bed and asked me to turn on one of her shows, by the time I turned around, she was asleep on the bed. My husband called a few minutes after that and we decided if she didn't wake up acting more normal, that we'd take her to the doctor. A few minutes later, she was asleep and started vomiting but woke up. She remembered everything that had happened earlier. She continued to throw up for a few hours but in between, she was acting ok so we decided to forgo the doctor. She took a nap around 6 and has been fine since she woke up. She's currently looking forward to playing outside tomorrow.

How absolutely terrifying! I hope she's much better soon! I wonder if her electrolytes got depleted from all that vomiting? Maybe some Gatorade is in order. Keep us posted! Love Lisa

Hope she gets better without a trip to the doctor.

Wow, that's awful, and must have been so scary. Lisa might be right, maybe it was an electrolyte imbalance. It sounds like she's doing better, thank goodness.

Love, Beth
