Day three of sick house, though we actually got to sleep most of the night last night- our son didn't wake up with vomiting (like Thurs night) or delirium (like Fri night). He still has diarrhea. His fever seems finally to be gone, but he is weak, listless, and tired. It makes sense- his little 4yo body has been through a lot. I keep giving him probiotics, little mouthfuls of drinks and food, and he's just hanging out and mostly sleeping on the couch. I wish I could do more for him but I think this is about it. I'm pounding the probiotics myself, plus an herbal medication to try and prevent stomach ailments from my good friend who is studying chinese traditional medicine. So far so good for me.
I am so worried about baby getting this nasty flu too. She was so fussy this morning- but now she's been sleeping in the moby wrap for 2 hours so maybe she was just tired. Her state-sponsored health insurance (Healthy Families) is in dispute at the moment (I did fax in the "missing" information last week) and she's already been kicked off mine, so unfortunately we have the extra stress out about the thought of having to take her in for anything (we are really living hand-to-mouth as it is). Anyway, its all nerves at the moment, she's been nursing and sleeping well, and no signs of anything really wrong. I think we're just jumpy.

Thanks for all the warm wishes, prayers, thoughts. I need them. Were slowly but surely on the way to getting her home!!
Lindsay, I am so glad the surgery is finally over, and that even with a tough recovery she is on her way home. I think so often of you and your family, you are such a strong momma going through this. Its going to be such an amazing joy for your family when you can finally be together at home.
