The Stomach Bug
And for 3 days all was well.
Then Kassidy called from school and said she wasn't feeling well, and sure enough, she was out for two days. I was getting really nervous as we inched closer and closer to Kennedy's dance recital.
We washed hands. We Cloroxed. We sanitized. We isolated.
And for 2 two days all was well.
Then on Thursday morning, Keeghan woke up complaining of a stomachache. He had a doctor's appointment that day with a specialist that we've been waiting to see since August. I tried to convince him that he didn't have a stomachache.
It didn't work.
And in true Keeghan style, when he gets sick, he does a good job of it.
We finally got him on the mend...
And for two days all was well.
Then last night at dinner, Kennedy started whining, "My tummy hurts."
Hmm. No fever. So we finished up dinner, I read her a story, put her to bed,
And a few minutes later...
She threw up all the way down our stairs.
And so as Kennedy and I spent all night awake, her throwing up and me holding her head for her, I just thought, "Well... at least we made it through recital."
This afternoon she's feeling a bit better...
There are 3 more people in our family who have not been affected by this awful bug.
And in 2 days we drive to Tennessee.
Will all be well?
