It's been a really, really long winter. We've had our fill of bad weather, viruses and colds, and just when we thought maybe the storm had passed, our household got hit with another freakishly bizarre virus. It started with me last Friday, hit Tyler on Sunday, and by Sunday evening I was with Tyler at the hospital trying to figure out what his stomach pains, vomiting and rash was a result of.
After 7 hours in emergency at the children's hospital, we were in the clear (no measles or hand, foot & mouth disease thankfully) and were sent home with clear instructions on how to get this little guy hydrated and back to his rambunctious self.

For me, the waiting was brutal, but for Tyler, he got a Popsicle, multiple movies and even a chocolate cookie for being such a good boy. I think the highlight of his hospital visit was when he got to do "peepee in the cup" he just thought that was the funniest thing ever.
I may have overreacted a little bit, but I'm glad my favourite little boy is OK... these kids sure know how to make us mom's worry!
