My heart is breaking...

...and I don't know why!!!

I'm sitting here, watching is silly movie (13 going on 30) and am in near tears. Clearly it isn't the movie that's making me weepy. But if that's not it, then what is it?

I probably should chalk it all up to lack of sleep. Chelsea has been sick for the past 24 hours. She didn't sleep at all last night - maybe a total of 3 hours. She was up all night vomiting & diarrhea. She couldn't even go to school today. She can't keep anything down. We finally called the pediatrician. They called in some meds and, of course, Chelsea is now fast asleep (before taking the meds). I guess we won't wake her.

I know this isn't a serious illness. But she's not acting like herself. I wouldn't really say listless, but she's not her spunky self. My heart breaks for her. I'm worried. Once she takes the meds, if she still can't keep anything down, then she will have to go to the ER. I think that's what has me freaked.

I'm a tired & worried Mom.

He's in control,
Allison

I'm so sorry to hear that Chelsea is sick. I'm praying that the meds help and that you can avoid the ER. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help!
