Yesterday was another really rough day to be a solo mama. Robbie had his first stomach virus. Diarrhea, vomiting, fever, the works :( Initially I thought he was having an allergic reaction to something he ate yesterday, but when the vomiting and fever started, that got ruled out. He slept a good deal of the afternoon, and yesterday evening I got him to eat a popsicle and drink some water. He kept that down, and I let him nurse as much as he wanted after that (earlier he had been throwing the breast milk back up). We had a decent night's sleep, and he seems to be feeling some better this morning, even though he got up insanely early. He ate part of a popsicle and has been eating on a cracker and drinking some water successfully. I'm praying that I don't get it today. Counting down the days until daddy is home, hopefully no more sickness or injury.
