That is what came out of my mouth, then Landon's mouth, when Samuel started throwing up in the wee hours of the morning--probably around 3am. He threw up over and over again all morning long. After a call to his pediatrician's office, it was determined that he needed to have liquids all day in the form of Pedialyte. If after two hours, he did not seem better, then we were going to have to take him to the ER for fluids.

Meanwhile, Landon started saying he didn't feel good, and the next thing I know, he was running for the toilet, only didn't make it, and then there was a huge mess to clean up! I was still feeling nauseated, so cleaning that up was really hard for me! I was dry-heaving, trying to manage Samuel, and Landon was on the futon as sick as I had been in the ER two days before.

As for Samuel, luckily it did not get to the point where we had to take him to the ER. He threw up a little more in the late morning, and it WAS hard to keep liquids down, but we managed somehow. He didn't throw up during the afternoon, but he did again in the evening, and that time, it went all over the futon, the pillows, the rug, and the floor. He was crying, "Mamamama." It was really sad! I wanted to cry right along with him, but I didn't. Everything went into the washing machine, and I gave Samuel and myself a quick bath (I was covered with vomit, too!), and the evening went on uneventfully after that--thank goodness.

Landon woke up later in the night with a lot of back pain, and during that time, I had tried to move Samuel and myself from the living room floor to the bedroom because I thought we'd sleep better. Landon, in his foggy medicated state said, "I don't think you want to be in here--it's nothing but a fun-house in here." It wasn't funny at the time, but later, I thought it was. So, Samuel and I went back out to the living room and slept on the futon mattress on the living room floor and left Landon to have the whole bed to himself. When you are sick, you need all the room you can get!
