Here we go....

so I have a head cold. No big deal. I can handle it. I am taking GSE (grapefruit Seed extract) in cranberry juice. It is Cooper that is bugging me.

5am it started. I heard "the cough". For those that have been there I think you know what I mean. The cough just before throwing up! then I hear MOM! MOM!! So I ran in there knowing what to expect and I was right. He had thrown up. So Phil and I gave him some gravol (anti-nausea med) and I sat down with him. I sat and cuddled him while Phil cleaned up the bed.

Cooper was wiped out, probably from the meds as well. So he went back to bed and slept until just after 7. Which is a sleep in for him. Came to my room and I just had this feeling I needed to grab the bucket. The bucket was beside my bed because I have been nauseous for almost a week. So I grab it, grab the back of his head, he says "NO!" and then up it came. He is now sitting on the couch watching The Grinch by Jim Carrey. He loves that show!

I am kind of debating on calling the nurses hot line though ONLY because last night he went to play and "slam" his head onto his pillow. He lunged at it but missed the pillow and SMOKED the front of his head on his headboard. It was so hard that I went running in there turning on the lights because I expected to see blood. But there was none. He was pretty quiet afterwards but we thought he was fine and checked on him quite a bit. I feel so bad for him.

can I just sigh........

It's pretty miraculous that any of us make it out of childhood in one piece! Good thing God makes use kinda bouncy at that age... ;)

Hope you're all feeling better soon!
