Lisa, yep my big boy starts school in a couple of weeks
Not sure how I really feel about it... 2yrs ago when he started preschool I was 36wks pregnant with Xander and bawled my eyes out for 3hrs
Tess, I really hope bub turns asap for you! Stubborn little muffin!! Have you two settled on names yet are still throwing ideas around? I saw you said you might be back to the drawing board on boys names?
We've all just had gastro!!!!!!!!!! A friend of ours had K for the night but failed to tell us they'd all just been sick with gastro
so next thing we know K is vomiting... from 5am ...all day.... poor thing... next morning Xander had it but only vomited twice. I'd say thats thanks to the vaccine they get for it now
anyway other than that he went off his food a little and had a couple of tummy cramps and loose bowels. Then we had two days break and i got all excited thinking the rest of us had missed out because i'd done my best at keeping K & X away from L... and made sure we all washed hands and mopped the floor constantly, sprayed glen 20 around all the time etc etc etc... next thing i know Saturday night BANG I was throwing up followed by L all through his bed... after midnight hubby started getting cramps... he was lucky and never got the spews only the other end... i was in tears begging hubby to make it stop
It was horrible!!! Hubby was up putting the sheets and towles through the wash... he was meant to work the next day.. he asked me what can he do and i said to him "just take the day off work, i cannot do this on my own" and honestly.. dealing with myself vomitng every 30 - 60mins ALL night along with L doing the same but not as bad... i just couldnt do it. Not only was i vomiting but it was coming from the other end (sorry tmi lol) It was horrid. Never in my life have i been that sick!!! The only other time i've begged someone to "make it stop" was when they broke my waters when having Xander and the pain intensified!!!!
At 5 in the morning i heard him on the phone to his boss telling her he needs to take the day off and that hes on the verge of taking me to the hospital! by 7am the vomiting had slowed down... so for 11hrs every 30-60mins i was vomiting. I had at least 4 showers i was aching all over and now today i cant laugh or cough because it hurts!!! I could barely walk and i slept all day yesterday!!! Mil dropped a bag of ice over for us and between hubby, L and I we went through nearly the whole lot!!!! Mil also took Xander back to her place. There was just no way I could tend to him at all and even if hubby did the nappies and feeding etc he still wanted to climb up and be in my arms.. i just didnt have the energy!! So she took him then brrought him back last night after she'd bathed him and fed him dinner. BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! she let him have a late sleep and woke him at 5:30pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So the little bugger didnt go back to sleep til nearly midnight last night... i ended up nodding off with him just laying in my arms watching tv in our bed!!!!
So today we're much better, i'm still feeling pretty drained but thats 100% to what i was!!!
I'm heading over to Katys place shortly to drop off her two baby guinea pigs!!!
Forgot to add.. RE: the floods : My grandma called saying that her sisters grandkids are missing (so that'd be my mums cousins family) her cousin passed away and his wife remarried... so the wife and kids are missing. They were from the Murphys Creek area... My mums Aunt is in a nursing home and doesnt really understand whats going on and none of the family really keep in contact with the wife because she went her own way after mums cousin passed away... all i know if the kids surname was McGorvern, my grandma doesnt know the wifes new married name...
other family have been affected in some ways throughout Brisbane and family in Bundaberg are all ok... water logged but ok!
