Why are you so grumpy?

Ohhhhhhh....
Perhaps our week of mommy torment hasn't just been a bad case of the grumpies.

I got clued into that last night at 1am when the first round of vomiting began... And if that wasn't enough of a shout out from Megan perhaps the fever solidified it. UGH!

Let's just say it was a long night.... for all of us. Poor Megan was miserable and I felt horrible for not being able to help her feel better (and for taking her to the nursery last night when she was symptom free, but probably contagious). UGH again! She was so lethargic this morning, won't eat or drink, hadn't been to the bathroom (or had a wet diaper) in over 15 hours, was complaining that her stomach hurt and to top if off said, "I go to dr's office mommy." wow. So off to the Dr's we went this morning.... no news there - could be a virus, could be strep. They did a culture and it came back negative but the Dr. thinks that strep would account for all her symptoms so they are going to see what grows over the next couple of days. In the meantime I have to figure out a way to get a urine specimen from her (in her obviously dehydrated state).... hhhuuuummmm, this could be interesting. They gave us some zofran for her nausea to hopefully keep something in her. I hope that works, She fell asleep in the car on the way home from the Dr's - I hope it's a good refreshing nap!

So, no gym camp today.... laying on mommy and watching tv has been the trick to keeping her happy and not crying. I just hate that I know how miserable she feels with a fever.

To top if off, Tom just walked in and told me that I felt warm and should go take my temp.... great.......

I'm so sorry ya'll are feeling down in the dumps. Being sick when you're pregnant and have a toddler to take care of is just the worst. I had a stomach virus when I was 5 months pregnant with Dawson and don't think I've ever felt that crummy in my entire life. Sure hope you don't get it.

I hope you guys get to feeling better. I just realized tonight that Benji had a fever after having flushed cheeks for a day or so and being really crabby today. :( We can't wait to get back to GA and see you guys! We are sending love and prayers your way!!!
