You Know You're A Parent...

When you get excited about poo!

Specifically your baby's first normal poo after over a week of gastro. That's right, the stomach bug came to visit Zeke & I... no fun at all. Needless to say we are very relieved to have things heading back to normal after a week of vomit and diarrhoea.

He had really bad gastro, and then every time he seemed to be getting better, he'd throw up again... and wow can that boy puke! After many discussions with various health professionals, the ER doctor at the local hossy FINALLY told us it was normal for a baby to go up and down in health when fighting a virus, because their body fights it in waves, rather than all at once like an adult would.

I'm glad someone finally told us what was going on because, he was getting better, and then almost exactly 12 hours later would start up vomiting again... and it scared the daylights out of him... poor little guy didn't understand at all. :(

Now I'm catching up on all the cleaning that needs to be done. When you're playing shortstop to baby vomit, everything that does not have puke on it tends to get ignored in favour of mopping up.

Now that he's well I hope to have a better update soon!

Don't even have any new pics... I fail!
