Our little Liji Warning: *Possible TMI*!!!!


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!!!

When you have a mouse or rat dilemma that you simply believe it is possible to manage oneself, go down to your local food store or other retail store that sells insect-management products and buy click traps and peanut butter. Create the snap traps in an place you believe is seriously traveled by the vermin and place some peanut butter around the bait location. Rodents and rats love peanut butter.

Be conscious from the environment when you are outdoor camping. Anything you hold in a campsite, ensure that you take it off if you depart. This will remove litter and safeguard natural setting. Prior to making, the area you may have inhabited ought to be as thoroughly clean while you will want it should you be just showing up to camp out there on that day.
