Maybe Next Weekend...

Well, I thought we might have had a bit of a great weekend, and we did... Curt and I went out for his birthday. Mom and Dad came up to watch Mason- Thanks Mom and Dad, you guys are awesome... We came back to the house after the movie so they could get home. We decided to snuggle and watch a movie in the bed. It was over at around 12:30 am. We were getting ready for bed and I asked Curt to go in and check on Mason and make sure he had covers. While he was in there I heard a funny noise on the monitor and in comes Curt with Mason screaming and vomit all over the both of them. We caught it. Curt's brother Cliff had a virus and I guess Mason got it. Poor little guy, he was just sick last weekend. Poor cliff I know he has to have felt horrible as well. We stayed in on Sunday because there was not much sleeping on Saturday night. I think Mason and I stayed in our p.j.'s all day long. Well we changed at least 3 times each from all of the throw up. The funny thing is that he was actually running around like a little crazy man in between purge sessions. We got worries by the end of the day because he had not kept anything down all day long. I knew that there was nothing that can be done for a virus, but dehydration was on my mind. The doc said that he needed to keep something down for at least 3 hours and so we started giving smaller amounts of Pedia lite more frequently instead of a lot at one time and he came around. I was so pleased because I did not want to spend the night with Mason in the ER getting IV fluids. NOT FUN! He is doing much better this morning and actually has kept some toast down and more pedia lite. YAY!

Maybe next weekend... we can make it with out any sickness at our house.... I am going to work on getting some meat back on his bony little body. He has lost over 2 ponds, which is a lot on his lanky frame...


  1. So sorry! That sounds terrible. At least he was happy in between, right?? It never ceases to amaze me the things there little bodies can handle. Glad you are doing better!

    We had a sick weekend too. I am SO READY for the sun to come back out and for everyone to be healthy again!

  2. Oh I am so sorry! It can't be fun when the little one gets sick, especially when you can't do anything to make it better. Poor little guy. The good thing is that kiddos are so resilient--he'll forget he was even sick (and lost 2 lbs!) before you know it.

  3. I hope he gets better soon!! And that you guys don't catch it. Poor little guy!
    How was your 'alone' time??? :)

  4. Give Mason a HUGE hug for us. I hope our sweet little buddy feels better soon!
