Midnight Vomit Drama (or should I say 3:00 a.m.??)
Yes, that is as disgusting as the title looks. I hadn’t mentioned a few days earlier that I hadn’t been feeling well. Last night, I got home from the musical “Wicked” (more about that to come) at about midnight. I didn’t go to bed until 1:00 a.m. I was (and still am) exhausted!!!
At 3:00 a.m., I brought my 1 1/2 year old to bed – yep, we do the co-sleeping thing in our family. I DO NOT have the energy to sit up and nurse him until he falls asleep, so I bring him to bed and nurse him on my side. After nursing on one side, he started to cough a little. Then I heard a gurgling, heaving noise and KNEW what was coming next. You’d think the house were on fire as fast as I jumped out of bed and ran to the bathroom. I cuddled with him over the toilet and he got most of it in. Luckily, it was just milk. Sheww— chili would have been a nightmare!
I went out to the front room and camped out with him on the couch. The last thing I would want is for him to throw up all over his dad. Waking up to being vomited on would definitely not be a good way to start the day!
Thankfully, he only threw up once – KNOCK ON WOOD! However, today he’s had fevers and not been feeling too well – wanting to be held all day long (OR NURSED). Please keep him in your prayers and pray that the sickness isn’t shared in our household.
