Eventful Night

THe middle child spent all last night sick at her stomach.  We can’t figure out what brought it on–the doctor just said it’s probably a bug.  I spent several hours giving her weak Gatorade sips every fifteen minutes once she started dry heaving.  So I am not in a good place this morning–It’s dangerous for a bipolar person to stay up all night like that.  I did get some sleep after four a.m. when she took another anti-nausea pill and finally went to sleep.  So we will see how the day goes.  Rachel is at least out of the house for Vacation Bible School so hopefully she won’t catch it.  We haven’t had this level of sick in our house for a  long time–but hopefully she will pull out of it with no more throwing up.  THey gave her a Dramamine shot at the doctor’s office, so hopefully that will take care of the current ill feeling.

I’m just dead on my feet.  I don’t want to go to sleep because the only way she can wake me up from where her room is in the house is to call me on her cell phone.  She did that twice after we went to bed; after the call just before midnight I just stayed in her room.

So pray that no one else gets it and that she doesn’t become dehydrated.  Thanks for thinking of us.
