The Bug

The worst kind of bug in the entire world. The stomach bug. The stomach bug swept through our entire house this past week, starting with our little Fordy boy. It sucked. Watching your baby who doesn't even know how to spit out throw up has got to be the saddest thing ever, especially knowing how throwing up wrecks your entire body. With the help of YoungLiving Digize, we were able to combat Ford's bug and it was gone in 24 hours, we thought we were in the clear. Fast forward to 2am the next night and Jon and I were both cleaning out our insides in separate bathrooms and sweating out fevers. I did lots of crying, lots of praying, and lots of sleeping. We even had our first night away from Ford because there was no way either of us could take care of our rambunctious little boy. It was good practice because we are leaving him for a trip for 4 days next week but I hated the circumstances.

One of the worst things was not even seeing a tiny smile crack from my always happy boy. We denied him food, water, and milk, that was hard. He isn't really into TV so was antsy and fussy. Day 2 was better, we got some smiles and he had fun building a fort with daddy and coloring on his new tray (and our white chair).





Thank God for Facetime, Ford had so much fun with his Mimi & Papa and when he came home, cried for them. Good thing I'm tough haha.


I am happy to report we are slowly reentering society but not at full capacity. This bug really wrecked us! I don't know if I would have survived without the help of my mom and dad helping with Ford, seriously, parents don't get sick days! I tend to get REALLY sick once a year and hope I've hit my quota. Stomach bug, you suck!

Praying y'all stay healthy! Last year I caught the stomach bug from one of my students and I have never felt worse. It was awful!

I got a stomach bug from Trent when he was about 17 months old but it didn't hit me until after i had flown to Dallas for work meetings. I threw up in the client's bathroom several times and then at DFW before my return flight. I didn't have Digize then haha! Glad you are feeling better - stomach bugs are THE WORST!

Oh no, I can only imagine. I'm already scared when my daughter will be sick for the first time. I was always a worrier, but since I'm a mom I'm worrying even more!
