What a week... Poor Jack, he is a miserable mess. It started last Monday, he was playing with one of Ella's toys, fell on it, and it scraped the back of his mouth, there was a lot of screaming and blood, and one scared mommy. Usually it doesn't take Jack long to settle down, but I knew he was hurting when he kept crying, breaking my heart. I wanted to get him checked out, probably should have, cause it was a long long night. Poor Jack screamed most of the night and was miserable every time he tried to swallow. His shots were scheduled for Tuesday morning and I had to put them off for so long, I felt I shouldn't wait. So he had his immunizations, then we rushed straight to the docs to make sure he didn't do any major damage. They told me it looked painful and nasty, but that he missed all the important things in his mouth and only hit tissue, still painful for him though. Nothing they could do though. Then Wendesday he wakes up with a temp of 103 degrees, eeek. Had some Motrin which controlled it, and another docs call, they said to keep an eye on him. Then diarhea all day. Up all night again. Then Thursday it was vommiting and diarhea, another call to the docs, told to keep an eye on him. Up all night again. Friday morn he wakes up pretty happy, but then up all night Friday night, more vommiting, diarhea, same with Saturday, then up all Saturday night. Sunday morn I had given up, I called the doc's again, they want us to go to Urgent Care, but of course they don't see anyone under age 2, so off to the ER. They get us right into a room, but Jack is miserable and screaming, this goes on 2 hours, still no doc. Finally a nurse asks if anyone has seen us, I say no, I'm in tears telling them I came here for help, get someone to help me. In just a couple of minutes a doc is there, then they give him Motrin for the pain and something for the vomiting. He starts to drink a lot, well a lot for what he has all week, then they let him eat some cookies, and he pigs out. He was walking up and down the halls saying hi to all the sick people, they got quite a kick out of him, as well as the nurses. A little like his old self. They send us home, doing NOTHING, and you guessed it, up all night Sunday night. Well Monday is his family birthday party, he still has diarhea, but no more vomiting. Can't go swimming with everyone, but I put his tootsies in the water, he kinda liked that. He had fun with his cake, played with it more then eating it, it was the first time I had seen him smile in days really. He even drank a baba before he went to bed, but then around midnight he is screaming again, and pretty much up all night. He woke up at 6:15 am with a dry diaper, which meant just over 12 hours without peeing, and his mouth was dry, so off to the ER again, cause these are the so called signs to watch for. They are poking my poor baby trying to get blood and get an IV in, no luck, it took 3 pokes, they did get some blood to test, but no IV in, they gave up and told us to give him water and popcycles. He is 5% dehydrated, which isn't that bad, but scary enough. Still nothing they can do for him, he is miserable and napping now, what a morning. Apparently he has a virus, nothing they can do but wait it out, nothing they can give us. We have another check up for tomorrow, just waiting for the nurse to call so I can schedule it.
But here is a pic of Jack eating his cake, can't even tell how miserable he really is here at all...
