sick

We've all been sick the last few days. It started last wednesday when carter threw up. It was a one time thing, so we didn't think too much of it. Then he threw up the next day. Other than that, he seemed normal, so we still didn't think to much of it. Fast forward to saturday at noon...we were on our way home from the store and jackson started crying, then threw up. Okay, now we think something must be up. Jackson continued to throw up that day and by 9pm, eric and I were both sick. Seriously not fun. Jackson and eric slept on the couch, I slept in the lazy boy. Carter slept in his crib and was really the only one that slept much saturday night. Sunday was more of the same. Jackson wasn't keeping anything down all day, so after talking with the on-call nurse, we took him to the ER. Thankfully, he wasn't dehydrated. They gave him some anti-nausea meds and a popcycle. After he was able to keep that down, we went home. Carter was at eric's parents' while we were at the ER and although we thought he was getting better, he threw up all over his oma (so sorry vicky). Thankfully, we all got some decent sleep sunday night. Monday was a good day for jackson, but carter was throwing up some and was just really miserable. We woke up this morning at 4:30am to crying from jack's room...more sheets and pjs to wash. After giving him some pepto and little bits of juice at a time, he hasn't thrown up since about 6am, and carter has kept the very little he's had in too! Carter's going to the doc this afternoon and I think we've figured out how to keep jack's tummy not so upset. Hopefully, they'll both be feeling better really soon (thankfully, eric and I started feeling better by sunday night/monday morning). So...that's what we've been up to. Hopefully we'll be having better days here soon.
