After they woke up, we met some friends at a local indoor bounce house gym. I think that is how one would describe it? It is local and just opened recently. They have bouncy houses, trampolines and toys upon toys for babies, toddlers and big kids. It is kind of the perfect place for a mom. You can literally let your kids go in the fun area (there is a gate where they cant get in/out on their own). The mommas can just sit back and watch them play! I’m that mom sometimes but mostly I am the one jumping in the bounce house with them. I actually had a pretty good day, pain wise, that day so I was all up in the action. If you’re a local of Childersburg, Sylacauga or even Chelsea, look up BounceLand at Bella Luna in Childersburg! So fun!
You know what really sucks? When you have one sick baby and you have to bring the other two healthy ones with you. We had to sit on the sick side because I didn’t want to infect anyone on the well side from Maddie. I was really hoping for something that could be treated with an antibiotic but nope, just a damn virus. Grrrrr.
We went all day Wednesday and everyone seemed fine and that things were looking up!
You were wrong JEN! Woke up Thursday morning to Jocelynn throwing up. That poor baby had it as bad as her mommy did. She threw up every 15-20 minutes for about 8 hours. I was terrified because I couldn’t get her to keep anything down and we were going on 10 hours of no pee. I was finally able to get her to rest without waking for a straight hour. I syringed her some ginger ale every 10-15 minutes and she kept it down! She still didn’t pee though, so I upped the dosage of ginger ale after every 30 minutes. On hour 13 she finally peed for me! Yay for no hospital visit that day! You might wonder why i gave her ginger ale instead of pedialyte or Gatorade. Both of those I had tried and she threw up every single time. After she was able to keep the ginger ale down, I then worried about getting the electrolytes back in her. My docs rules are anything you can get them to drink, let them drink.
