Yes- we hit a breaking point last night and after some throwing up and dry heaving- we carried Tallon to the ER and we are so glad we did. He was dehydrated- talk about miserable- I felt so bad for my little boy and he looked soo sick. We arrived around 10:30 PM and thankfully the ER was not busy and I recognized the nurse who triaged us and he got us a room quickly- THANK YOU LORD!! ( I had been praying the whole way to ER that I would recognize someone working and we would not have to wait long) soo, an IV stick, iv fluids later and a popsicle- around 4 AM we were discharged home- exhausted but alive. My parents were kind enough to come pick up our home and finish washing and drying our bedding (that Tal had vomited all over) so we had a clean house and clean bedding to sleep in. Tal slept well. I woke him up at 7 and he ate a popsicle, some toast and drank some water, and then he and I fell back asleep until 10. Poor Daddy- he went in to work today- I know he will be ready for some rest tonight. So far, Tallon seems to be acting more like himself today and has definitely had more of an appetite although he is still on basic food- jello, toast, saltines, popsicles! He is just starting to wake up from a great 2 1/2 hr nap so we will see how the evening goes. The evenings have been the worst with this GI bug so I am praying that he will do well tonight and continue to progress. We did not carry the camera ( we were just in a rush to get to the hospital with him dry heaving) and although he was so cute I am sort of glad I don't have any pictures to remind us of how aweful the past week has been!! Thank you again Lord for our health- I so often take it for granted!!
