Dec. 24th 0600: Celebrated Christmas with my in-laws at their house. Santa came to their house and we had a great time. The boys got a ton of stuff and they go to enjoy it all day Christmas Eve.
Dec. 25th 0530: Merry Christmas!!! Santa came to our house and he thought that our boys were the best kids on this earth!!! They got so much stuff! Briggs got a drum set and Grady got an adorable dino rocker that is too cute. I got a birthstone necklace that was totally unexpected and Cody got some shirts and socks. I had to go to work :( so I left right after we celebrated our Christmas.
1900: Celebrated Christmas with Cody's grandparents and again the boys got waaaay too much stuff. By this time our living room looked like Toys R Us threw up (which could be possible, just keep listening to the story).
Dec. 26th 0730: Headed to Amarillo to have Christmas with my parents and sister and Miss Elizabeth. Briggs got a bike from Santa over there and it is REALLY cool! Again our car was loaded down with many presents. Cody and I had a wedding to go to that night so we planned for the boys to stay with my parents for the night.
1400: Cody and I head back to Sunray to go to the wedding.
1500: We are driving and come to Dumas and suddenly Cody's stomach isn't feeling so good. Not a big deal, we just thought that he ate too much (happens quite often.)
1600: We are home and Cody is very unsettled and is still not feeling great. I told him to lay down and take it easy until the wedding.
1700: Cody is on the couch and says he doesn't feel good enough to go to the wedding, so I head out by myself. Not a big deal, we thought that he might feel better for the reception.
I get back to the house, which smells of bleach, and Cody is white as a ghost on the couch and says he can't keep anything down! Gees! So I go to the store and get stomach ache supplies: Jell-O, Sprite, Broth, you know the drill.
Cody continues to not feel well and sounds pretty much like he is going to die. (You know how guys are when they get sick).
2000: My in-laws call and say they are coming home from the reception because my MOL is sick!
2100: I decide to sleep on the couch because I really don't want to get this nasty bug. I TRY to sleep on the couch but my ailing, moaning husband can't get comfortable and I can hear him from our room to the living room.
2330: Ring Ring! CRAP! I knew it right when the phone rang. It was my mom calling me to tell me that Briggs is throwing up! So, I start crying! I head to Amarillo and get their by 1230. Sorry Cody Your on your own!
Briggs continues to throw up every 10 minutes while I am driving there and then when I get there he slows down to every hour. He is a sick little boy:(
We get NO sleep and lay around the next day Dec. 27. Grady is doing great by the way and I am feeling fine also. I decided that I was not going to leave Amarillo until I knew Briggs was feeling good, because our pediatrician is in Amarillo. Briggs starts to feel better towards the end of the day, so I decide we will go home in the morning.
Dec. 28 0800: We make our trek back home everyone feeling GREAT! The boys are a little tired but that is to be expected since all the excitement over Christmas. Cody stayed home from work and he is feeling better also. My in-laws are doing good too.
1500: Guess what? I start having symptoms! Not too bad but still it's there.
1530: Grady pukes.
1600: I puke.
This repeats over and over and over again until I though I was going to die! My mother-in-law stayed with us because there is NO way I could have take care of ANYONE!!! She stayed 2 nights, praise the Lord. This bug was the nastiest thing I have ever had! It lasted for about 24 hours. We are all doing good now and enjoying 2010!
Happy New Year to all!
