That quickly changed to 5 out of 5 for vomiting episodes in the Ewer household a couple days later. Joe went down saturday night and the mightiest little one finally succumbed on sunday. And no, my dear sister, "puke bug" is something entirely different than the flu, which all of us got as well at different times. It turned into 3 exhausting weeks but i am seeing the light now, as i am feeling pretty good although my voice and cough say otherwise. Last week would be hilarious to a fly on the wall i'm sure but it was a bad few days for this real life momma. My voice was gone on thursday, G-O-N-E. And joey whenever he gets bad sick, like once a year, can't seem to hear ANYTHING for a couple weeks after. These two things just happened to occur at the exact same time. So i'm so frustrated painfully trying to yell at him just to get his attention and his innocent face "what?" is met by a contorted angry weary face trying to simply communicate a simple direction. My voice after 2 1/2 days started getting better, but joey still can't hear squat. Ian was started on antibiotics last wednesday for an ear and sinus infection. I'm not a big fan of unnecessary drugs so i made sure that the dr. was sure that his wouldn't clear up on his own. I guess the goopy nose and cough he's had for a month would have been another indication. ;O Joey was actually the one i was more concerned about because of the coughing fits he's been having, especially at night. He coughs so much and can't stop he thought he was going to throw up because it makes him gag. He had fluid in his ears but she was pretty convinced that he would be fine on his own. Ahhh, with five of us there's more love to go around, but that means more germs make their rounds too. Summer come quickly!!
