Round 4

I'm KO'd. That's it, I'm done. I've reached my limit and basically I surrender. What round of ailments would be complete without a case of vomiting and diarrhea? Well apparently none, since now the kids and I are suffering from rotavirus. This lovely little virus causes both vomiting and diarrhea and basically there is nothing you can do about it. Yes it's been quite pleasant. It started early early Friday morning when Little Man starting puking at about midnight. I thought maybe it was just a dinner that didn't agree with him (I mean he had Taco Bell for dinner so this would not be shocking) especially since he would puke and go right back to sleep, no fuss, no clinginess, no fever. Just puke. Well he went to school because he was fine that morning and was fine all day long there until we got in the driveway. Where he puked again. Cleaning puke out of a car seat is the biggest pain in the ass ever.
So then Sweet Girl got it. I'll spare you anymore details. Other then now I have it and I'm thinking of getting the Desitin out for myself.
Right now, I hate absolutely HATE the fact we moved. Thankfully Leo has been able to stay home a bit and help out. His current company is much better the the spawn of Satan company he worked for before where lord forbid you had anything else come up in your life. That little tidbit and the fact he is so happy there are the only things keeping me from packing up the back of my Yukon and heading back to TN, taking my house off the market and living there. The thought of driving 27 hours with two kids doesn't even phase me at this point. It can't be much worse then the past 5 weeks of sickness.
Maybe tomorrow I'll post about our Easter day the few good hours without puke and vomit.

Trial by puke....Rotavirus really does suck. And it has a very peculiar smell.

It will get better. Hang in there. Your kids will have immune systems of steel by the time all this is over!

Just think of the fun you'd have infecting all the TN kids with your new Arizona viruses. :) Cheer up - we're all sick here too! You do know that there is an actual "Happy Valley" in the greater Phoenix area right?

You're not ko'd ,it's just the end of the round,you're in your corner, resting, we're all behind you,wiping your face with the sponge,messaging your shoulders,giving you words of encouargement,you're going to go the distance and win this fight,your opponent will wear down and you'll land that knock out punch. Love Father

Oh yeah. I've been through it. I think that it's like chicken pox though in that you don't get it again. Usually.
