A bathtub, a sedative and a really good book

I went to the doctor today to have him look at my neck. The nurse who took my vitals looked at me and said, "Theres something different about you? Is it the Chicken with Wild Rice Diet?" And my reply was, "No, its the stomach flu diet." But I was glad she noticed I lost weight. :)

Update on our family:

Scott, Jacob, & John are still healthy.
I am recovering from the stomach flu, but have really bad neck pain and Diazepam isn't helping so I'm going to the chiropractor tomorrow.
Matthew likes to try to get his bandaid off, but then soon forgets about it. Did eat a little bit today, had between 6 and 10 dirty diapers today and did drink some. I think he's on the upswing.
Brooke did not eat anything today, drank a little bit, and had a ton of dirty diapers. Her bottom is sooooo sore. But she doesn't want to sit in the bathtub and I've been putting Maalox on it to kill the sting, then Desitin and or Vaseline on it. I let their bottoms airdry if possible and I'm not using wipes, I"m using washclothes. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated. She HATES her diaper changes.
And if she doesn't have a wet diaper by tomorrow morning, I'm going to bring her in. Actually, I'm going to check her right now and probably give her some milk and cuddle with her for a bit.

Oh yick. We had this stomach flu a few weeks ago. It is nasty, nasty, nasty. I got a script for Zofran and it saved my life. For real. It was super expensive, but completely worth it.

I hope your neck feels better. As if you need that on top of everything else.

And sorry to hear about the stitches. I hope they heal soon!
