We've got the sickness

Tuesday Hailee started having diaherra (and of course it started at school). They called me from school and told me about the diaherra incident and then asked me if I wanted to come get her or wait and see if she has another one. I told them I would like to wait and just see. I never got another call that day... so I thought well that is good. Maybe it was just a one time thing. Well, as soon as we got home she had another one and then later that night she had another. She woke up once that night crying but, Bob got up and laid with her and she fell right back to sleep.

Wednesday was the worst. She woke up to diaherra and ran to the bathroom. She was going constantly the entire day (my hands are so dry from washing them all day). We had her on the B.R.A.T. diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast). I had her drinking water and gatorade (as much as she would take in). Then nap came around and she was running a 100.0 fever so, I gave her some tylenol and sent her to bed. As soon as her head hit that pillow she was OUT (this is bery abnormal for her). She woke up about 3 hours later not in a good mood. Her fever had gone up to 102.2 so, I gave her some motrin. 30 minutes later it began to go down. She never had a fever the rest of the day but, diaherra continued. She started playing and acting like herself. Since she had a fever and diaherra (still) there was going to be no school for Thursday.

Thursday has been okay. I woke her up this morning and she was crabby (she is always like this in the morning). She wanted cereal and/or a waffle but, I said no because her poops were still not normal yet. Of course that didn't make her happy. So, she settled for toast with some cinnamon sprinkled on it (with watered down gatorade). The morning went on with cartoons and then just a minute ago I hear her running to the bathroom and I looked and there she was having more diaherra. It is getting better though (it isn't just water). My poor baby... at least there is no fever (yet) and her tummy isn't hurting.

Poor Hailee! I feel so bad for her! It sounds like you're doing the right thing with the B.R.A.T. diet. I've also heard that Pedialyte works better than Gatorade because it doesn't have as much sugar. Not sure if that's true, but you might want to try it. Please give her a BIG hug from her Auntie Julie and I hope it gets better soon!! ((((HUGS))))) - Julie
