morning updates

Brooke slept in her own bed last night... which was good. I was concerned on how she would do, but she had been okay all afternoon and evening with no vomiting and we got her temp to go down. Most of all, she wanted to sleep in her "big girl" bed with her new sheets on it. I was beat. I did laundry and cleaning and more laundry and cleaning all day long. I had weekend laundry to catch up from and sick child laundry to do.

I fell asleep on the couch while the kids watched some tv. We got them in bed pretty early. It was before 8:30, I think. I could have been earlier. But then I thought I would watch some tv and just relax some, I fell right to sleep again.

Brooke was good all night. Bryan got up to check her... he said she was a little bit warm, but nothing major. This morning she came down stairs all by herself into our room to tell us she needed some Ginger Ale. So we got up with her then, and she was okay.

She did vomit again this morning, but it was mostly phlegm.... sorry to be descriptive, but I think that is just because it was morning time and she has that in her little body and it needed to come out. I'm hoping she doesn't vomit any more today.

She is still a little bit warm, but I'm holding off on giving her Motrin because we gave her some cough medicine, and I really HATE to give them meds. I especially hate to pump them full of them if A. they don't really need them and/or B. they aren't going to do anything. I sort of feel this way about the cough meds, but Bryan thought she should have them.

I have a headache again this morning, seems to be the norm lately, and my throat is a little sore/itchy... could be dry house, and I have one nostril that is clogged. I'm not feeling too perky but I still think it could be from lack of sleep.

Trevor is good. :) Thankfully!!

AND Lauren is good. :) Thankfully!!

AND Bryan has no man cold or other germs so that is GREAT!! ;)

I hate when the kids are sick. It is so hard to watch them when they are so miserable. I sure hope she gets better soon and no one else in your family gets sick.

I agree with you, cold medicines don't do anything.

Aubrey said...
