Bad night

Both Macey and I have the stomach flu. Or, rather, both of us puked this morning (her last night too). Those of you who know me know that I'm not good with puke AT ALL. In fact, I wrote a whole post about it here.

Craig has been a champ. He took care of Macey last night, and then both of us this morning at 5 am. He gets extra points because, well, I kinda had a seizure and passed out. Then I puked. When we first started dating I told him about the whole seizure thing and in the eight years since I've been with him this is the first time that he's ever seen it. And he is not keen to ever see it again.

I had my first seizure at 12 and when I saw a neurologist out it he said that sometimes kids get seizures that they outgrow. I haven't had a seizure since I was 21 and I thought I had grown out of them. Apparently not.

Anyhow, I'm recovering, and so in Macey, although she's gone from puking to having aggressive diarrhea. It's an improvement over the puking though, and since I'm about 12 hours behind her with the onset of this I have that to look forward to. I've only had a Slurpee to eat today, because my philosophy is "If nothing goes in then nothing can come out.", if you know what I mean.

I'm just hoping that Craig and Lily can avoid this bug. Because I can clean up any kind of poop, but if you're puking, I'm running.

Good lord I'm a bad mom.

HA! I'm also one that subscribes to the "nothing in, nothing out" philosophy.

I grew up with an epileptic mother so seizures where very much a part of my world. I've never had one, but they look very scary.

I hope you and your family heal up quickly!

Sorry to hear about the seizures. Ryan had febrile seizures when he was a baby, and watching them is the scariest thing I have ever had to experience, EVER. I'm glad to hear you are all doing better. My thoughts are with you, and I totally agree about picking poop over puke, 100% with you on that.

How is it that I *never* heard about the whole seizure thing? Not that I remember anyway...
