Older ds was puke-sick last Friday night and a bit on Saturday. So he got better and we stayed home a few days to make sure we didn't spread it if any of the rest of us had it. Freya started crawling, yay! Then Wednesday night, ALL night long, ds2 was up puking and ds1 was up and feeling icky but no vomit. Yes, the night before thanksgiving. Ds2 did so good getting to the bathroom multiple times, then one time got up, seemed confused, got back into bed and puked. They'd been sleeping in sleeping bags for fun. Not so fun to launder. Pillows, mattress, everything... So both boys ended up sleeping in the bathroom the rest of the night on mats we put down. It was so awful, neither of them has ever been so sick as ds2 was. NO fever!! DH was up helping with all this so we all got maybe 2 hours of sleep.
So then Thursday everyone is fine, just exhausted, and Freya miraculously slept thru most of that. Both boys eat pretty well.
Friday night ds2 didn't eat much dinner and I somehow forgot that if they don't eat enough at night, they puke the next morning. So more puke this morning, this time on my couch!!! Oh my gosh the laundry I've been doing.
Meanwhile, my old kitty has been missing a few days and I'm pretty sure he's gone for good. DH goes to check the mail and the cat is right on the porch, yay! But his back legs aren't really working well, aren't supporting his weight. Same thing happened to my SIL's cat at the end of his days. I brought kitty in and he was purring but very weak and hiding under a shelf (never done this before). So I had to take my 13 year old buddy to be put to sleep today.
Also, it was super weird to explain to my 5 year old why we were euthanizing the cat. He had a bunch of questions that I answered and he didn't seem to get it, really. It's sort of come up in the past, like DH has put a car-squished chameleon out of it's misery and told them why, but not our own family animal.
Anyway, hi! I have a cranky baby tonight. Maybe a tooth is finally coming??
