It's been a LONG four days!

Kase was supposed to have his six month checkup tonight at 5:45.  Unfortunately I had to take him in yesterday morning because he is STILL sick.  He threw up three times Thursday night, which is when it all started.  Since then, he has had diarrhea with every single diaper.  Literally - diarrhea almost every hour for four straight days.  And because of that, he has a nasty diaper rash :(

As of Sunday, he wasn't peeing much.  He's also not eating a whole lot.  We were worried he was getting dehydrated so we got him in yesterday morning.  Good news - he isn't dehydrated.  Yet.  Bad news - he threw up again yesterday morning, isn't eating much, still has the diarrhea and diaper rash.  And the doctor said he could very well be dehydrated by morning (meaning this morning).

Sigh.  My usually happy, chill baby is miserable and it breaks my heart.  We will see how he is this morning and if he wakes up with any urine in his diaper.  I'm praying this all ends soon.  He has been getting up at 2:00 in the morning and staying awake.  Needless to say, Mom and Dad are pooped!

We're having lots of extra snuggle time.
Kyla has been very good, even with less attention than she's used to.  She was so excited to see the fish at the clinic yesterday.  She also insisted on wearing those little brown shoes.  I tried to grab a different pair and she said NO and pushed them away. 

She also refuses to wear her old tennis shoes.  She will only wear her Nike's, even though they are size 7 and still a little big.  I have to admit, they're pretty darn adorable and I've been waiting for them to fit!

Hopefully I will have something more exciting to blog about tomorrow!  We're supposed to get another 3-5 inches of snow tonight.  Sleep deprived, sick baby, and stuck in the house.  Yippee!
