Change of plans

Right as Bobby and I were sitting down to lunch yesterday, the school nurse called. Caitlin was throwing up. I took Bobby in for kindergarten and came home with Caitlin. Poor thing. Watching your child be ill and knowing that there is nothing you can do to make it stop is one of the worst feelings in the world.

She is home today--the vomiting appears to have stopped, and she's occasionally sipping some water. I'm hopeful we'll graduate to some toast before too long. The poor baby hasn't eaten since yesterday morning (and this is my grazer--the one who come through the kitchen every 90 minutes or so to announce, "I'm hungry!").

We'll be right here on the couch for today at least. I hope you are all well and warm!

Poor little muffin...Saltines are a little gift from God...maybe try those and some gingerale. When I was sick a few days ago, that really helped.

Wishing your girl a speedy recovery! Stay well and warm yourself and I hope you get to squeeze in a bit of knitting time - right there on the couch by your girl.

Oh my gosh....Poor thing. There is nothing worse than having a sick child. I would have gladly been sick each and every time one of mine came down with something. And hey -- you're up with them anyway so you might as well be the one feeling yucky. I hope both of you have a better day soon.
