Hanging in there

Today we went back to the doctor. He was still throwing up and having yucky diapers this morning. So off we went. His ears are still infected so they gave him another shot of antibiotics and said that if he's not better, meaning, no throwing up with small amounts of food and or clear liquids and very little poop, that they may have to admit him to the hospital for observation and give him fluids through an IV again. He is doing much better today though. Only the one bout of each this morning, but nothing since then. Of course he's only had about 4 ounces of pedialite and some applesauce.....The doctor also wants me to get a stool sample to him so they can see if he has rotavirus. He thinks this is what he has had this week. We'll see though. I just hope that he doesn't have any more yucky diapers! I've had my fill of poop and vomit for a very very long time!

Prayers today: That he will continue to keep down all liquids and food that he eats today. That he will have no more diarrhea. That his ears will heal with these antibiotics. That no one else gets sick! And that we would all get a good night of sleep tonight.

Thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes this week. I have definitely been feeling them. I'm not sure how else I would be functioning since I've had very very little sleep this week.

I feel so sorry for all of you! We'll be praying for Paxton (and the rest of you). Just so you know, our friends' little boy has the rotavirus right now, so it may be going around.

Oh I am so sorry to read you guys are having such a hard time. We are thinking and praying for you and your family. Ezra has Rotavirus when he was 13 months old and I thought it would never end...UGH, the diapers ugh!! I feel your pain. Many prayer coming your way.
