Sickly Weekend

Marion started vomiting at 5pm on Friday, and was sick until about 11pm that night. It was scary, because we've never had to deal with her being that sick before. She fell asleep in between bouts of vomiting, and we tried to keep her hydrated, but it was a tough night. We figured that it was some kind of food poisoning, as it was over so quickly, and she didn't really seem to be sick in any way other than the vomiting.

Then on Saturday evening I started to vomit, which wasn't fun for anyone as we were in the car at the time. I had a fun time getting rid of everything in my stomach for a couple of hours, and then I switched over to having a fever of around 100.5 degrees. Keleigh was taking care of me, so it wasn't too bad, but I was feeling pretty terrible.

And, to complete the tri-fecta, Keleigh got sick at 1:30 am on Sunday morning. As I was already sick, I couldn't do much for her, and we just tried to make it through the night. Marion slept rather well, which was helpful, although she woke up earlier than we had hoped and I took her out to play. I was feeling better, so I thought it would be okay.

It wasn't terrible, but I wasn't really feeling good enough to follow her around and really be an active parent. I went back to Keleigh after a little and we recruited her sister (Jaime) to play with Marion. This was a -huge- help, as Marion was bored with her slow moving parents.

My fever broke at about 2pm on Sunday, and Keleigh's sickly-ness stuck around until somewhere through the night on Sunday. So, Marion definately was the quickest in-and-out of this intestinal illness, proving that children are just about invincible.

So, we start Monday with a messy house, and with no one feeling their best. Hopefully today will bring us some sunshine and good feelings.

In an ideal world, couples should only get sick ONE AT A TIME!
