The bug

Well, I had another visit to the doctor and the hospital. I forgot what it felt like. Wednesday night, I wasn't feeling too good. I woke up about midnight and got sick to my stomach and threw up everywhere. Then every 10 minutes I woke up and tried throwing up but nothing would come. There was nothing in my little stomach to throw up. I woke up the next morning feeling okay. I ate a little, so mom decided me to take me to the babysitters. Well that didn't last long. After about 2 hours, she fed me some applesauce. And well that wasn't going to stay down. So she called my dad to come pick me up ASAP. By the time he picked me up, I threw up 2 more times. We were on our way home and I started getting sick again. So instead of going home, dad took me to the doctor. When we got there we barely made it in the door and I got sick again. So the doctor rushed me back to the room and checked me over. He said I looked pretty bad and told me to go to the hospital to get some fluids in me because I was dehydrated. But before leaving I had to make another mark. I threw up again and had some diarrhea. I made a mess everywhere. Finally we made it to the hospital and got some fluids in me. I was starting to feel a little bit better. The only thing was, they wouldn't let me eat anything. The doctor wanted to give my belly a rest. That didn't make me very happy. But late that night, I got to drink some Pedialyte. I did well with that and kept that down. So the next day, I got to eat some real food. And did very well with that so I got to come home late that afternoon. Before going to bed mom gave me a little milk (since the doctor put me back on a regular diet). But I wasn't quite ready for that, I drank about 1/2 ounce and well that came back up. So she gave me some Pedialyte and I slept the rest of the night. I was exhausted. I guess this is what it takes for me to sleep through the night. Mom decided to give me a break from milk today too. Which is good because I don't think I am quite ready yet. Feeling sick doesn't feel very good. You can even ask my dad, he came home from work early feeling sick. I don't advise anyone to get the stomach flu. But I guess that is not in my hands.
