Just when you thought it was safe....

The little guy still woke up last night & vomited.  Technically it was morning...I think around 5:30am...but it was dark still so maybe it was earlier? Either way, it was not fun.  So far today though, things have been ok.

My little guy is so thin now. I mean really.  You hold him and you can feel all his bones.  It's scary. At the doctor's office the other day he weighed in at 20lbs 10 oz...that might seem like a lot but he was that weight at his last check up 4 MONTHS AGO!!!  A few ounces heavier, actually.

He ate a bit more today.  He wanted left over spaghetti when he woke up and saw biggest brother eating it. (which was delicious btw!)  Later he had some Chinese noodles.  I have really taken advantage of this time, while he's been so cuddly.  I do not take those moments for granted, especially since he's been so sick.

A friend reminded me, and it makes total sense, how dehydration can make you vomit.  So perhaps he had a virus or something and became dehydrated and then began vomiting more simply because of the dehydration.  I've never seen a flu virus or bug last this long.

He feels so fragile and tiny.  My heart hurts for him.  I cherish all this extra time I have had to hold, snuggle and love on him.....while trying not to worry.

We've canceled all our weekend plans and declined all invitations.  I think it's best to just stay home and let him rest and recover as best as he can. 

I hope he is noticeably much better tomorrow.
