Lysol please!!!

I am so tired of germs and viruses and bacteria oh my!!
Justin has been throwing up since Thursday morning at 4:55. Poor little boy. Friday he was so lethargic, and add in diahhrea to the mix. JOY!! I took him into the childrens clinic this morning. The nurse says there is a virus going around. So the doctor said to put him on just pedialite for the next 12-24 hours, and cut out the breast milk for the next 24-48 hours. i guess there's too much sodium in breast milk, and he said they become a little lactose intolerant when they're sick. He also said to give him a little Emetrol, to help settle the tummy.
Well, something worked. Justin was getting back to his normal happy go lucky self when I got home from work this evening. I did nurse him though when I got home-he just wasn't taking too kindly to the idea of no mommy juice-which is the first thing he always gets when I get home from work. So far, it's stayed down. Keep your fingers crossed for me. He does still have the diahhrea though. Maybe he'll be staying home from church tomorrow. I don't feel like dealing with very leaky diapers in church.

Oh, sorry, that really stinks! Litterally huh? We had that virus too. Glad my kids are older. I would definitely take Sunday off!

Oh you poor thing, I hope he gets all the way over it soon. It's no fun when you have a sick kid.

Poor baby! My boys have had a touch of something lately too, but no where near that bad. Hope he's feeling better soon.

Thanks!! today, he finally seems to be on the mend. No blowouts yet, I'm just going to focus on keeping the liquids going in, and fattening him back up. He lost like 8 ounces.
