Up Late with a Sick Kid

A couple times this week, Nathaniel has vomited for no real apparent reason other than his stomach was hurting & maybe ate too much, I don't know. But then he was fine. Now he's gone two days without being sick. YAY!

However, now Felicia has whatever it was that Nathaniel had.

I was up trying to get the kids to settle down & go to sleep. And Felicia had a tummy-ache. I was reading a little of my book to relax & unwind. Suddenly, I got a major foot cramp in my arch that was making my toes curl. Weird, I know. It happens periodically. I was trying to massage my foot hoping the muscle would release. Felicia kept getting up, so I put her back to bed. In the middle of having another prayer with her so she could sleep...she reached for the bucket (the one the kids get when they're not feeling well). I walked her to the bathroom.

Well, this just turned into a very long night for her. Poor Felicia! Once she barely sat up & couldn't grab the bucket in time. She ran for the bathroom. I had to rinse her in my shower when she was done. I feel really bad for her. She's so uncomfortable. And can't stop vomiting.

To make things worse, is that possible? Ben keeps getting up periodically to check on me. Not a bad thing, but I don't hear or see him until I practically run into him...therefore, scaring me to death! LOL


On a side note, in between helping & cleaning & rubbing her tummy or back or head, I got to read my book. And finished it! It was AWESOME & AMAZING & WONDERFUL!!! If anyone wants to borrow it, you can. BUT I want it back!
