Bride of Puke-a-thon

And I thought the puke-a-thon was over. I spoke too soon.

Cal finally settled down from being baby recovering from three shots and went to bed about 10 pm. Mike and I turned in some time after 10:30 and all was well with the Hodge Lodge.

Then around 12:30 am I'm awakened from my almost deep sleep by Mike telling me Duncan is in the bathroom puking his guts out. So we both are out of bed dealing with a very miserable eight year old. We try the crackers thing to settle his stomach, they come right up. He's drinking water to rinse out his mouth. That too makes a return engagement.

Finally around 2:30 am he settled into bed only complaining of stomach cramps. I spread one of our ugly green hospital blankets on the floor beside his bed and put a large box next to it in case he couldn't make it to the bathroom in time.

Mike and I turned in and left the bathroom light on so he could find his way in the dark and I hoped all was going to be quiet.

But it wasn't to be. Around 4:30 am I was awakened to the sound of Mike rushing into the bathroom and puking his guts out. This also had the effect of waking up Cal. Mike is a louder puker than Duncan evidently.

So, puking Mike and cranky Cal. Lovely. Calvin finally settled down and went to sleep in the bed with me. Mike retired to the living room because he couldn't lay down without feeling the urge to puke. He slept in there until 7:15 when Cal and I got up.

Now Duncan is on the couch feeling miserable and Mike is in bed feeling equally miserable. No school or work today. Cal and I will attempt to tiptoe around them but that's awfully hard for a one year old who isn't sick. I was a smart cookie though and asked my mom to come get Cal after she hits Weight Watchers this afternoon. I figured that would give all the sick ones a break and me as well.
