Snow and Ice


I started this entry to tell you about the snow and ice that we have been blessed with for the past two days (by started I mean I typed in the title). But, bigger news!

Butterfly is puking. I am feeling very queasy. Butterfly woke up early this morning after puking all over her bed and stuffed animals. While Juice held her, I cleaned that all up and bathed Butterfly so Juice could get ready for work. Now, it's been every 20 minutes of puking and crying and screaming because I'm sticking a bowl in her face to catch the puke. I think I've changed her clothes 4 times and it's almost 11am. Hopefully she'll go down for a nap soon and be okay.

I'm slightly annoyed at the people I babysit. Miss Long Hair was telling me on Monday that she had been sick, throwing up and diarrhea. Her mom said something as she was walking out the door that she wasn't sick anymore. Yeah, not sick but still contagious. I'm annoyed that she didn't tell me when I first walked in and could have taken Butterfly home. I refuse to go to any one's house that has been graced with an intestinal bug for 48 hours.

This of course has put a major damper in our weekend plans. Juice has tomorrow off, and we were going to go big girl bed shopping for Butterfly. We were going to go to the big Swedish store and have meatballs. We were actually going to go out on a date. Now, I don't think we can do any of it. Poor thing.

Okay, it has taken me all day to write this post. Butterfly is asleep for the night (hopefully) and is holding down 8 oz of pedia-juice and 8 oz of milk. We'll see how long that lasts. She has a fever off and on, and a rash all down both of her arms and on her cheeks. After googling it, I swear she has Fiths Disease. What got me was all the pictures of kids with this rash look just like Butterfly's rash. I will be calling the doctor in the morning, just to have her checked out. And it could just be the flu. But a rash on her arms and face plus the vomiting? Time to check it out.

In other news, I'm feeling better after drinking gallons of ginger ale and resting all day with Butterfly. Also, I got a belated Christmas present in the mail today! Pictures tomorrow.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear that Butterfly is so sick! Please keep us updated, I sure hope it's not Fifths'. I swear the internet can be a blessing and a curse, I always google too much and scare myself with the info I find. You both will be in our prayers.
