icky sicklies

sophie and dwayne and i are all sick. it sucks. sophie got it first on thursday, she was throwing up and has had diarrhea since, then yesterday morning i was sick and by the afternoon dwayne was too. now sophie and i are trying to recover and dwayne is still sleeping because he keeps feeling better and then eating too much and then making himself sick again. silly boy.
yesterday sophie fell asleep in the middle of the living room, twice - once she was sitting up playing with a toy and fell asleep and just leaned over with her butt in the air and slept like that for almost half an hour. dwayne put her down for a "nap" last night at 6:30 and she slept until 7:30 this morning and didn't even wet her diaper, poor baby is dehydrated but i can't for the life of me get any pedialyte into her. she hates it.

Oh sick kids are not a good thing. Try putting gatorade into her if she doesn't like the pedolite.OR
8 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt in a quart (4 cups) of water. This mixture lacks potassium, You can supply some potassium by adding a cup of orange juice to your homemade sugar drink or feeding her some banana;s--maybe even letting her suck on popsicles. Hope you all get to feeling better and soon. You don't want Sophie getting to dehydrated. Hang in there.
