Stomach Flu

I know it has been nearly two week since I lasted posted, but it has been a busy and yet calm couple of weeks. Johnny and Mommy both got the stomach flu last week and it was not fun. We spent days throwing up and having diarrhea and then days after that of fighting the diarrhea. I feels like it may never stop. Mommy is feeling much better, but Johnny's tummy is still bothering him. But here are a few pictures of our week.

We pulled out Johnny's tent that Grandma Sharon and GG got him for his 1st birthday and put it outside for him to crawl around in, he loves it!

We had one hot day the day before the flu hit our house so we tried out Johnny's little pool. He much more enjoyed the filling of the pool and less the playing in the water.

I just thought this was cute, playing with his little toes, my baby boy!

Recovering from a night of throwing up and and a morning of an upset stomach, watching Dinosaur Train.

Part of trying to get rid of the flu and make his tummy feel better is eating the BRAT diet...Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast. Johnny decided to start eating his apples whole...core and all! Why wouldn't he, no one ever told him not too and why would I.

This was last night, just as we thought the flu was gone, Johnny got really sick again. This time he was bent over in pain and wanted to be held and soothed and had his worst poos ever. He didn't want to eat, he just wanted to go to bed, whimpering. After a quick trip to the doctor this morning we are gathering some samples of his poo and cutting out lactose. It appears that I gave him milk too soon after the flu and his tiny tummy wasn't ready to process it yet, but the samples are just to make sure it is nothing more serious.

Because of our flu invaded house we haven't been doing much more then recovering. Potty training was going amazingly before the flu hit and he regressed a little needing to wear a diaper on and off. But we have been trying to go back to undies and sit on the potty as much as possible. I would say he is mostly potty trained, he knows what to do and when to do it, but the diaper confuses him...but it is either that or me scrubbing poo of the couch...which did happen this week. We look forward to a calm week end and finally moving past this horrible poo flu!

Hey Jenn--just so you know the "A" in BRAT is for applesauce which is easier to digest than apples! Certainly easier to digest than apple cores--silly boy!
