Sick Boy:(

Braden has been the healthiest baby ever....until now. About 3 weeks ago he got the flu, BAD. He threw-up and had diarrhea for 3 days straight. Once we got him over that he started to get cold symptoms. He has been really fussy and clingy for the past 2 weeks. He started to get a little better and back to his normal self, but then Saturday morning at 3 am he started screaming. I went in to check on him and he had thrown-up all over himself and he was burning up! I have never felt him so hot. It took 1 dose of Motrin, 1 dose on Tylenol, a luke-warm bath, 1 pedialyte popsicle, 1 blessing from dad, and lots of tears to get it back down to normal. It was so scary!! It has happened about 5 times since then and I was really getting worried he might have an ear infection. I decided to take him to the doctor today to see what was up. Luckily his ears looked fine, but she wanted us to get a chest x-ray to make sure his lungs were all clear since he had a pretty nasty cough. Again, everything looked fine. So now I guess we just have to wait it out. Poor little guy is miserable:( I can't wait for him to be his crazy, hyper self again!

That is so sad. The flu has been so bad this year. Adrie had the same flu. It is not fun when your little one is throwing up all over. I hope he gets better soon!
