When it rains it pours!

I am home today with a sick child.  She was up throwing up all night...therefore I was up all night...feeling a bit tired today.  She is still not feeling good poor kid. Luckily, our daughter, had today off work.  She is up hanging out at the hospital with her dad today.

Paul was doing better yesterday...started not feeling good last evening...and then started the nausea/vomiting thing quite a bit this morning.  They are changing the formula going into his J-tube.  It is such a catch-22 because you need to eat and get nutrition to survive, but the food going into his intestine is making him throw up!  With time his body is supposed to adjust...just how much time is the question.  Just got a call from our daughter, he is not doing well at all.  Constant nausea and vomiting!

It is so hard to watch the one you love so much suffer...I have found though, while the suffering increases, the help and love have been increasing at the same time.  I came home from the hospital yesterday to discover a nice clean house.  Santa's elves were hard at work in my behalf!  I can never adequately thank those elves...it is so nice not to have to worry about vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing toilets, etc... at the present moment! My girls still think that Chippy, their elf, was the one that provided all the magic!

Meet Chippy, our Elf on a Shelf!   The girls get so excited to see where he is going to be next!
