Update : Stomach Bug

Morning mommies!  What a difference a good night's sleep makes!  My little Izzy seems like she's almost back to her trouble maker self.  Almost. I'm am relieved to report that she has been able to keep down three feedings and slept about 12 1/2 hours total.  She woke up a few times but I was able to get her back to sleep without too much fuss.  There also has been a lack of projectile vomiting or tossing of any cookies since yesterday afternoon.  Whew! 

That's the end of the good news.  We have evolved to poop-explosion!  She woke up at 8am this morning and was whining.  I wasn't sure what to expect.  I had a towel and lap pads ready for more vomit.  She came over and lean on my shoulders and BOOM!  It was so loud I even bent over to see if her diaper was still attached or if she blew a hole through them.  Poor baby girl is breaking the sound barrier from her derriere.  Oh my goodness, it was all liquid.  There was no form to her stool it was more like a light brown chocolate milk consistency.  Yum!  Oh come on, I'm sure you've seen, smelled and had to deal with the same or worse when your little one was sick.  Sharing is caring right?  HAH!

Okay, so I'm a little delirious I was a little freaked of waking up to an exorcist-like sequel of vomiting.  So every cough, wet sound and/or otherwise movement from my "little" I was wide wake.  All night I was one step from grabbing towels and flipping her onto her side in the likelihood of vomit.

She is playing this morning and interested in eating so I'm cautiously optimistic.  Between us, I preferred diarrhea over vomit.  One is contained while the other can redecorate.   :)  Signing off for now, Izzy wants some "nom nom".
