Will is still sick. He has no appetite. He is thirsty and chugging down enormous amounts of pedialyte. I am grateful that he likes it, because I would be getting very concerned about dehydration if he weren't at least taking that. He hasn't vomited since Saturday morning (thank goodness) but he is still having a lot of "other end" troubles. His poor lil' bottom is so raw and red and nothing is working. I haven't had to break out the diaper rash creams in a long time. He never really had bad diaper rash (a couple of times here and there, but usually it resolved quickly), so this is a first. I have given him oatmeal baths and am slathering on the a&d, Aquaphor, and wiping as gently as I can during changes. What would probably work best is to let him run around nakey, but I honestly can't stomach the thought of cleaning up the mess.
M is still sick, too. He is not horribly sick, but his cough is deep and in his chest. The three day weekend was good timing, in that he can have more time to rest.
The "good" part about Will being sick? He is in love with his bed. He is asking. . . no, begging, for naps and bedtime. He took a 3 1/2 hour nap yesterday and woke up later than usual, which would usually mean a later bedtime. He was asking for bed a half hour before we would usually put him down. Today, I attempted to give him lunch, and he took one bite of banana and started crying for "bed, please." Kind of cute and sad all at once.
So, that's what's going on around here, at Casa de Sick. What's happening on your long weekend?
