The stomach bug strikes again...

As I've said a million times before, we are so very fortunate and blessed to have a healthy little boy. Even weighing in at a tiny 4 pounds and 7 ounces at birth, he was a fighter and "healthy as a horse" -- we kept him in our home for a little over a month and slowly started getting him out at friends and families homes, church, etc. Obviously, we made the right move, because his immune system is strong! I can count on one hand the times in 5 years that we have been to the doctor for sick visits. Yes, we are blessed and thank the good Lord daily for this. However, he has been through a stomach bug or two in his life! It seems if a stomach virus is going around, Connor will catch it. He dodges strep throat, the flu, even common colds, and other things. But, the stomach bugs get him every time. This is no fun at our house, because it completely zaps his energy, and we all know what kind of energy he has (haha)! He has had this stomach virus since Thursday around lunchtime (he informed me a little boy threw up in his class on Thursday) -- and at 8 a.m. today (Saturday), he just threw up again. He is steadily drinking and even ate a few bites of vanilla wafers last night, but he is just laying around and sleeping a lot. It's so sad to see him like this, but as I've also said before, with all of the horrible sicknesses and diseases that can happen to our kiddos these days, we will take a little 48 hour stomach bug over that any day. So far, Drew and I haven't caught the bug. I, however, have washed 50 loads of laundry and sanitized everything at least twice!

Because Connor got sick on Thursday, he had to miss his Field Day at school on Friday. This was such a disappointment, because I had helped organize it and was so excited. Drew, my Mom, and Connie had all arranged to get away from work and be there, and then this happened. We were so sad about it all!!!! But, there is always next year. And, the bright side to all of this is that we are one more week down and closer to Summer break! Yay!!!!
