YUCK.

What a crazy week! I suspected last Sunday that Chloe either ate something bad or was getting virus because her tummy just wasnt right. She was still very playful and acted like nothing was wrong with her. She drank a glass of milk (not sure why I gave her that) and went to bed. At about 2 am I heard some gurgling and she had thrown up all over the bed, and is choking on more. SCARED.ME.TO.DEATH.  I quickly raised her up and swooped her mouth, and the projectile began. I seriously have no idea how a toddler can throw up so much. It is insane. It was all over, me, her and the thousands of towels Chad was bringing in. This whole process wasnt even phasing Chloe, she would puke and just stare at the TV. Thank goodness it didnt last too long, soon she was asking for her pat (pacifier) and was snoozing. As we did about three loads of laundry...pillows, sheets, towels, mattress pads. YUK! Then rolls around Monday night, I make a mad dash to the bathroom and Im puking, Chad comes in to assist, because he knows after 11 years together, this is the worst thing that can happen to me. I can honestly say I HATE to throw up, I will fight it for hours, and ball and squal though every heave. This came on so fast that i didnt have time to "prepare" my normal puking regimen. I like to be in the bathtub, a glass of water with ice, and a trash bag. I feel like the water on blocks the sound of it and i feel like Im staying clean at the same time. I know....go ahead and call me weird. So here I am standing at the toilet, I can not for the life of me put my head to the toilet, never have been, never will be. It makes it even worse because all I can think about is what normally goes in there. So chad is trying to put my head in, Im jerking in out and pretty much walls and floors are being painted. I would much rather clean it up afterwards than have to look into a toilet bowl. Tuesday morning comes, and I hear Chad in the bathroom...puking. He is more of a sport though. So I call my mom to come get Chloe, and Chad and I lay in bed with chills and fever most of the day. We think everything is all over with and my mom calls me Wednesday and says she is puking. Finbally we are all in the clear by Thursday morning. that evening Im playing with Chloe and notice her having chills, and feeling very clammy. I get my thermometer and her temp is at 102. gave her ice chips and motrin and went to bed and continued to check her all night. It shot back up Thursday morning around five, then she acted normal most of the day. I thought it may been something left from the virus. I noticed her eyes looked weak so I decided to take her on in to Acute Kids. Hec checked her all out and didnt see anything wrong but a tiny hint of a red throat, so he decided to do a strep test and surprisingly it came back positive. He also said her tubes had fell out and he actually dug one of them out.  The other should fall out since it wasnt stuck. It was about time, she has had those things in since she was nine months old :(  Im praying and hoping that her ears are healed from any future infections. I stared her on a liquid vitamin and probiotic last december and this is the first time she has been sick since then. So here we are now, Im pretty sure we are on the upside of things now!!! Im am so very thankful that I have a healthy baby girl. things could always be worse.
