Sick

Warning: This post is disgusting!
On Friday night we got home really late and I felt dizzy as we unloaded the car. I thought I was just overtired.
On Sunday Lamb 2 threw up multiple times. He was fine by bedtime. After I put the boys to bed I felt sick, but before I went to bed, I felt better.
On Monday I felt sick in the afternoon. Our nightmare of a night began then. Ram took turns on the toilet and throwing up and sometimes both at once. I felt like I needed to throw up, but I couldn't. Lamb 1 threw up in a bowl while Ram was on the toilet, and I had put my bowl down to help Lamb 1 so I ended up throwing up in the bathroom sink. In the middle of the night then Lamb 3 joined us. I spent the entire night helping Lamb 1, then Lamb 3, then throwing up myself, and listening to Ram. Ram helped as much as he could but he was in worse shape than I was. The only good thing was Lamb 2 slept through most of this and never threw up last night.
I finally got the idea to put a disposable changing pad under Lamb 3 in the pack n play. Then we he threw up I just changed pads. He had no idea how to throw up in a bowl and was too tired to barely sit up to puke.
The Lambs slept in a little bit this morning, but now they are playing and fine. Our house is a disaster-lots of dishes to do but I can't go in the kitchen without puking. The bathroom has tons of laundry but I don't have the energy to take it downstairs and start the washer. And there is trash everywhere from these disposable changing pads etc.
Ram and I need to figure out what to feed the Lambs as it's 12:30 and they haven't had anything besides drink this morning.
We have never all been sick at once. Ram called and canceled his nursing home visits today. Hopefully he can get his sermon written for the funeral tomorrow. Ram and I both ache all over.

Wow! I hope you are starting to feel better! My lambs are grown now, but I remember having to stop to throw up before I could stand changing a diaper. And I had a husband who refused to come home to take care of kids while I was too sick to do it myself.

We must have had the exact same bug!

Friday afternoon/ evening and all day Saturday were miserable and disgusting. All six of us! I had over 17 loads of laundry to do when it was all said and done!

A mommy first: changing a dirty diaper and the smell causing me to throw up. Ughh. Yuck.

So glad we are all feeling better!
