I apologize in advance for all typos and errors you guys. tyiping one-handed here because i'm holding sofia nonstop.
the plague has descended andstruck my baby. she's puked five times already and since ive been holding her nonstop, that's a lot of wardrobe changes for us both. and our white duvet cover.
i can't google norovirus and remedies. can you help me please? what do i do? i have the pedialyteand gatorade but what else?
theysay the diarhea is coming. lord help us all.
Update: Okay, so she's in the Ergo and I can type like a regular person. She's so sick and pitiful you guys! She was sitting on my lap this morning at breakfast, facing me and out of nowhere, she did that half-heaving thing and vomited all. over. us both. Poor thing, she looked terrified because she had no idea what was happening. I just kept saying "it's okay baby" because I didn't want to scare her.
So the second time she puked she looked up at me with her huge eyes and was like "It's okay baby?" Broke my heart.
It's rough being by yourself with a sick kid. She was steady puking so I couldn't really leave the house and of course we have none of the stuff to help. No juice, no soda, nothing. Major thanks for the coconut water suggestion - I don't like the idea of gatorade or juice but I hate the idea of my puking baby more.
When she started puking bile I had no choice but to take her out to the store to get something. I couldn't imagine how much it burned her little throat to have nothing in her belly and have all that acid coming up.
We raced through the store, but we didn't make it out puke-free. I have a growing pile of puke laundry.
Sofia has never been sick like this and I'm placing my order for her plastic bubble post-haste. BPA-free plastic, of course.
But for real, this sick kid business is the worst. The worst thing is, she most likely got it from the doctor's office! How's that for some nonsense! I took her yesterday because she had a cold when we were on vacation and I wanted to get a clean bill of health - ha frickin HA - before I sent her back to school on Thursday. I called them today and they were like Yeah she probably got a GI bug when she was here. I was like, the HELL? That's a thing? Getting sick at the doctor's office? That quickly and that violently? Good LORD.
Anyway, we're still trying to keep stuff down, and we're just going to duck and cover and ride this shit out.
I'm praying to Jesus it doesn't hit me next.
Update x2: She just puked in the Ergo. It's between my boobs. I just.....
