Oh What a Night . . .

Last night I was awakened at 3:00 am by a very sick little boy leaving a trail of vomit behind.  He vomited all over his bed, on a pile of laundry, and even on his brother's bed and well, even his brother.  I got everything all cleaned up and started the laundry.  By the time I got back upstairs I noticed my head was thumping.  I didn't really want to go back downstairs for medicine so I thought if I went back to bed I would be fine.  

At 6:00 am I woke to one of the worst migraines.  I actually thought I may need to go to the hospital.  I couldn't lay down because it hurt too badly.  At one point I thought I may be suffering from an aneurism.  Some Vicodin finally kicked in and I slept for a few hours.  I slept off and on all day and took 3 different kinds of medications.  My head still hurts, but it is definitely better.  

Harrison didn't move off the couch in the "kid area" all day.  He hasn't vomited all day, but he hasn't eaten either.  ( we have a small area in the room next to the living room where we have a kid couch and chair as well as a tv and the playstation set up)

I took yesterday off work and I hated missing yet another day.  We are already short staffed because my mom is in Florida for 3 weeks (ugh I know ) and I really feel badly about not being there today.  I hope that tomorrow will be better.  I have some training to do and I have to do my work for the last 2 days.  Oh man, my head hurts.

Yuck! I though you were going to say you had what your boy had. Hope you feel better soon, that doesn't sound like fun.
