When It Rains... pours.

Things seemed to be looking up on Wednesday. I was feeling refreshed after writing my feelings out on the blog. Which, by the way, thank you so much for all your amazing comments on that post. It meant the world to me and I will reply to everyone as soon as I can. Wyatt seemed perfectly fine when I put him to bed. At 1 am he woke up and was boiling hot. He proceeded to wake up screaming every 20 minutes for the remainder of the night (and the two nights following).

Once the sun came up, he was coughing so hard he was throwing up. We got him into the doctor first thing and got him on some antibiotics. Friday rolled around, and I couldn't get my little ninja lion to drink. By Friday night, he was looking very frail with dark sunken in eyes.

At work Friday
He'd only had a couple hours sleep in 48 hours and we were getting really concerned. Around 10pm Friday night, I loaded him up and headed to the ER. 3 hours later, he was finally drinking after some anti-nausea meds and heavy duty cough syrup.

Rocking his Ninja to sleep waiting to be discharged
I have to say, I was extremely impressed with the hospital. We had an ER doctor that was great with Wyatt (you never know what your going to get at the ER in my experience) and an amazing nurse that treated Ninja just like a little person. Ninja has had his blood pressure and temperature checked, and a urine sample and is healthy as a horse. Human Ninja is well on the mend now and back at daycare today.

With all this going on, workouts and nutrition have been farthest from my mind. But, it's a new week and we are both (getting) healthy! Hopefully the illness season has finally passed us by and we can get down to business.


  1. so sorry he was so sick, but yay you for getting him, twice, promptly to a physician! Dehydration for any reason can escalate quickly in little ones. Keep some popsicles on hand; it's true that when one can eat / keep down nothing else, sometimes popsicles can work. They taste good, and you only have to suck on them. :)

    Glad he's better, and hope you don't catch it!

  2. hope he gets to feeling better soon!
