Aieeee!

So sorry to hear that–we did the car ride (about 6 1/2) with a feverish/vomiting/not eating infant, and though he was quieter than most times we’ve done the drive, I was a basket case all the way there. My only consolation was having my own mommy at the end of the drive, and not knowing thing one about how to take care of a sick baby.

My heart goes out to all of you. If you can, post when you make it there.

My kids have had that all week, minus the vomiting. I’m so sorry!

Why do viruses know just the wrong time to attack? I hope it’s just a 11 hour bug. And I’ll pray that he doesn’t share the wealth.

HMOG. Here’s hoping it’s just a bad case of tummy upset to due goldfish crackers/chicken fingers/apple slices/whatever the hell it is toddlers eat.

We’ll be thinking of you!

Oh no! As if you weren’t dreading this enough as it was.

Thinking of you. GOOD LUCK!

My first thought was, “Ohhh, shit.”
My second thought was, “fuuuuu**”
My third thought though, was “this chick is the bomb and will not only make it there just fine, but will eventually tell us about a great and humorous way to survive it.”

Kudos to Donna for the helpful packing advice…which is probably a lot better for you than me just sitting here spouting expletives. I like to curse at things though.

I wish you the best possibly outcome, a short-lived illness, or at least getting there with minimal puking episodes. Sending lots of healthy, safe car-riding thoughts!

A) You are a braver woman than I.

B) I hope Riley gets better really fast — for his sake and yours.

C) Um, have fun on your trip?

Kristi

I’m screaming over here for you – also, ripping out my hair. Don’t forget extra towels (and Donna’s list kicks ass).

Remember, right now you’re imagining the worst and chances are high that it will be much, much better than that!

Thinking of you!

Ho-lee-shiiiiiiiiit. If you need someone to talk you down from the ledge, just give a shout. I like Emily and Mary O’s take on things…

See if you can get Gravol from the local drug store. It’s a supreme anti-nausea medication usually for travel sickness. I’ve tried posting a link twice but the comment won’t take… so here goes

Oh my. Can you put it off a day or two? Maddie had the same thing a couple of weeks ago and it only lasted 24 hours. But I had to keep her off of dairy for a week, or she’d hork.

And wash your hands every five seconds. And pray you/baby don’t get it, too. Aargh.

Any chance you could postpone for a day until all is recovered?? That is so frightening. I would be whimpering under the couch in a fetal position if I were you. Wait. You may already be doing that.

Just think: Once you get there you will have more sets of hands to HELP YOU. And, that should be enough to propel you through anything!

Keeping my fingers crossed that he is better soon and that you don’t get it. You are not allowed you know!? :)

Oh. Shit. (Wait a minute, there isn’t some of that too, is there? Because that would make an awful situation even worse.) Fingers are crossed for a speedy recovery.

See, your nightmare is my WORST nightmare…..I have major puke issues. MAJOR. Like I can’t function when family is puking, because what if I catch it and puke? It’s terrible.

I hope the pukes abated, and you are at your in-laws safe and sound, with no further sick kids or sick you.

I once took my two grandsons from NM to WV 6 hours plane, and because it was late, 8 hours on the train. People thought they were my kids not grandkids.
Apparently it was after that trip that I got all the grey hair, lol.
Seriously though, it wasn’t bad. They were 2 and 9 months, just starting to walk. I wore overalls, (lots of pockets) and wore a sling to put the baby in, and then the 2 year old held on to the hammer loop on my leg and we were just fine. The only bad part was that I was having my period, and had to change with them in the bathroom. Look! Is that a bug by the door? No, over there! Slight of hand and distraction, I tell you, I became quite the magician. And since we were going on the train, we were all wearing our stripey overalls, and when I took a nap with them on the train, I hooked the 2 year olds strap through the hammer loop so he couldn’t wake up and take off with out me hearing or feeling him. The baby stayed in the sling, strapped to me. We were fine. And we had a blast, and if I do say so myself, very cute in our matchy clothes.
