Well, the weekend is over. I can't say I am sorry to see it go.

Will seems to be feeling a bit better, but his poor bottom is so raw. It's like one gigantic welt with other welts on top of it. We have been giving him oatmeal baths and are trying this powder on the advice of a friendly pharmacist that I literally started crying with yesterday. Okay, I wasn't sobbing or anything, but I had tears in my eyes. I feel so helpless when Will is sick. I know that we can't do anything but wait it out. I know it's nothing serious and that a little bout of diarrhea is not going to kill him, but I just hate that it's been since last Thursday that he's had what I would call a decent meal. I hate that he winces as I go for the flaps on his diaper. I hate that he looks as if he's lost weight when I see him nakey.

M seems to be better but it was a rough weekend for us. We were sniping at each other by yesterday - too much "together" time. We barely left the house and I think with the dreary weather, sickness, and everything else, it was just. . . a lot.

So, I am glad it's Tuesday and that, hopefully, everyone is on the mend soon. I could really use a break, but I don't see me getting one until sometime in 2025. . . or so!

I've been trying to calculate when I'll get to sleep through a whole night again. If I get everything I want, I'm seeing about twelve years from now.

Soooo hard to have a little one who is sick. Matt had to sleep in our bed last night and it was not good. Hope he continues to be on the mend and you all get out of the house!!!

Oh my....sending lots of get well soon vibes your way. And I really hope that Will gets healthy and stays that way for awhile so you all can enjoy the new baby!

Sick baby + sick husband + no escape = one hell of a weekend. I so understand! ((hugs)) and keeping my fingers crossed that everyone starts getting better soon!

My parents used that powder on me when I was little! ;o) I haven't seen it in years.
Will is probably better now, but FYI... My niece used CA (abbreviation for the state) Baby spray stuff for her daughters severe bum issues. She swears by it.
Hooray for solid poopy!
