Trouble.. Even worse than that stupid song by Shampoo. Remember?

So

Update on the house of puke.

Ella had a bad night. Night 3? Worse than night 2 on Saga of Puke: The Puke Week.

She was up hourly through the night, barfdom supremeo and diarrhoea of epic proportions. Even when sleeping! And at some points she was so sleepy and ill-ridden that I was changing her nappy and she didn’t even wake up!

Bless.her.

S-o-o-o-o-o-o-o… doctor this morning. She has a raging ear infection in one ear and gastroenteritis.

Fantastic.

Also she was apparently so dehydrated that if she still is not keeping water down by Saturday morning she will probably have to be admitted to hospital. Also he was worried that the antibiotics could worsen the diarrhoea she already has in which case he would want to see her tomorrow morning.

Thankf-u-l-l-y… she seems to have turned the corner today and although she still has temp and obviously isn’t *better* better, she perked up when I brought two balloons back this afternoon and we had an hour of smiles and cheekiness even through the still obvious lethargy and general ropiness. Looks like the antibiotics were kicking in..

Fingers crossed that tomorrow she’ll be on the mend and by the weekend she’ll be back to normal.

Phew!

*Also – it has to be said that Robo chipped in last night and decided to keep her wee to herself… so that was good too!
