The sweet nurses, gave him two Cars 2 cars to help him calm down after the nasal swab. Poor boy...Daddy had to hold his legs, and I laid on his upper body and arms in an attempt to hold him still. This special gift perked him up a bit. When we picked up Sapphira from my parents house, he showed her the cars and said "see these cars, Sapphira? They are so special to me!" ♥♥♥
On Monday the 19th, I came home from work with a sore tummy which progressed into the flu on Tuesday morning. I had been saying I wanted to take a day or two off from work before Christmas, but body aches and vomiting weren't what I had in mind! oy
Tuesday evening after we put her to bed, Sapphira began throwing up and continued to do so all night and the next morning. She had a high fever, but was unable to keep any Tylenol down or the water she kept begging for. We called her doctor mid morning and they scheduled her an appointment a couple hours later and they suggested we give her 2 teaspoons of gatorade every 5 minutes to try to keep her hydrated since often when your tummy is upset, it can't tolerate large amounts of liquid, but small frequent amounts are ok. We got 8 teaspoons in her before she crashed in my lap. Poor thing was soo tired since she hadn't slept all night due to her frequent vomiting. About an hour later she woke up, asked for more drink, so we gave her 2 more teaspoons and she vomited all that up plus the 8 teaspoons from earlier. Poor baby was so sick. Her doctor gave her an anti-nausea pill and a bit later some tylenol which she was able to keep down. After that she was able to keep liquid down and she guzzled gatorade all the way home. After sleeping for the rest of the day, she was back to her normal sweet self.
