Naomi caught a case of the stomach gurgles. It's no fun being sick, but it's distressing to see your child sick and not being able to explain why it's happening or what's going on. Or that there's no medicine to help.
Naomi appeared in our bedroom Monday morning around 2:00 am and spent the majority of Monday throwing up and having other unpleasant symptoms. She threw up 10 times between 2 AM and 10 AM, so we were worried about her being dehydrated. She was able to start eating popsicles and Gatorade mid-day, and it was all uphill from there. We have our chipper little girl back this morning! Unfortunately, she was hopping around at 5 AM, and I wasn't ready for such exuberance at that hour...
Two items of note:
1. While in the waiting room at the doctor's office, in one shot Naomi threw up all over me, the check in counter, my wallet, cell phone, and straight into the opening of the diaper bag. Everything I pulled out of the bag afterwards was covered in goo.
2. I understood what my parents felt like being literally covered in my throw up. However, despite their knowledge of my extreme motion sickness issues, they continued to stick me in a car and drive to places like Iowa and California. So they at least knew to expect it.
(Picture above is a random one, not one while Naomi was sick. We were too busy wiping the vomit from everything to take pictures!)
