We've been very blessed that Noah doesn't really get sick. He's had his breathing issues, so we're used to those. But "normal" sick was new to us.
Yesterday, after Ching got home from work, he wanted to go for a ride in her new car. Actually, he sat in the back seat and checked it all out, and then decided he'd sit in the front seat and drive. We never put a car seat for him in her Matrix because well, it was her commute car. He knew my car was his. We've got a car seat for the new car coming tomorrow.
We finally got him out of the car and to the park. But, when we got there, he just sat on the bench with us and was all snuggly. He didn't want to go home, but he never got up and ran around and played like his normal self. Sometimes when he needs to poop and hasn't yet, he'll tell us his tummy hurts. We assumed that was what was going on.
After a while, we finally came home and he wanted to sit on the sofa and watch Curious George (again).
We could tell he didn't feel good, but didn't know what was wrong. Then he sat up and threw up, and then threw up again. Poor baby. This was his first time throwing up and being aware of throwing up. He wasn't too upset by it and we told him it was all ok and we'd clean it all up. That was laundry load one.
He was also starting to get warm, so we came upstairs and took his temp, just about 100. Gave him some meds.
I thought we might have to stay with him into the night, so we put him to bed in the full size bed in the guest room, and we plugged in his night light, and we brought in his music.
He fell asleep for a few minutes, then woke up and was laying there. Then he sat up and threw up even more. That was laundry load number two. He seemed to finally feel better after that and we did his normal bedtime routine, with a bowl of cereal and some honey.
He was funny though, he wanted to stay in there and sleep on the big bed!! Heh. Soon... we'll get him a new bed soon.
Today he's pretty low key and not eating a dozen snacks all morning. We chilled on the sofa and watched a lot of George and then Cloudy With Meatballs. Did another dose of medicine.
The upside is this is happening this week and not next - which is when school starts.
