Vomit and Puke

As a mother I take delight and almost everything I get to do with my kids. I love coloring with Damon, sledding, hiking, taking walks, watching movies, watching him build with legos or playdough. I love seeing Damon and Kaili together doing things as brother and sister. I enjoy knowing Kaili and forging ahead in creating her own adult life.
Even Damon's incessent talking brings me some measure of comfort.
It's even not too bad that (don't tell him I told you) he still wears a pull up at night.
But I have to draw the line!!!

When I am only just feeling better myself since my last chemo cycle and Damon gets violently ill in the night. John did get up with him a couple of times, but after that it was my turn. Three of four more times and what a mess. As a mother I do feel for my son...I really do, but I just have a really hard time with puke. I was tempted to take one of my ZOFRAN.  Doing laundry at 5:30am is not an ideal time for housework in my mind. Or being awake, unless I am headed to the gym with AMy! Which I wasn't. So it wasn't ok this morning.

And when Damon should have been exhausted and sleeping until at least 8:00am, he was awake and ready to come downstairs at 6!!!!! Wow! We ARE going to be taking a nap today...soon actually.
I hope he feels better soon and right behind that, I hope I don't get this! I HATE puke! And I hardly think Zofran would help if I had the full blown flu bug.
So, off I go to Lyesol the house, wash my hands and rest.
Have a great week.
Health to all.


  1. That boy just doesn't stop does he. you would think that after having been up all night vomiting he would have been exhausted today. too bad i can't have some of that energy. although i did just get off the treadmill: )
    maybe you can get a nap SOMETIME TODAY. love you. Dad

  2. Puke is the WORST!!!!!!!!! No fair that the kid still had energy- where is the justice!! Hope you got your nap in:)

  3. Doesn't everybody feel better AFTER they puke? LOL!

  4. And so our memories are made!
