It must be the season for hospital visits, every second blog i visit at the moment seems to have a post about their hospital drama! Here's ours!
Late last week i got a vomiting bug. It was short and sharp, I am still feeling drained, but i was only sick twice. On Friday night, however, Elijah started vomiting and didn't stop. He then got the *runs*. The poor little thing couldn't keep anything down. So yesterday it was off to the Dr's we go! I spent from 10.30am til 3 sitting at the Dr's trying to get fluids into him. We tried EVERYTHING, all the brands off electrolytes, juice, water, syringes, cups, bottles. As a last resort the Dr decided to send us home and see if he would take a bottle of milk at sleep time. From 7.00am - 8.30pm last night he only passed 1 TEASPOON of wees!! Anyway, i knew he would fall asleep in the car so i gave him the bottle in the car, he didn't even have 10mls before he vomited it all up, all through the van!
So, Jarrod took him off to hospital. They tried getting fluids into him there (including ice blocks) with no luck so they put a Nasal-gastric tube down. From then on he started to improve, he kept the fluids down, ate crackers and even had a yogurt! By the time he got home at 10.30pm he was a different boy!
Today my happy little boy is back, he is pretty weak and pale still, but, he actually ate breakfast!! Woohoo!!!
