stomach flu

Emergency Room Visits and Our Weekend

Happy Sunday! Whew, it has been quite a crazy week for the Zottola Household. We somehow caught the stomach flu for the second time this year 😅

Jimmy started feeling nauseous mid-week and had some GI symptoms that kept him out of work and then led him to the hospital for fluids by Friday. Sadie had a lot of the same symptoms and wasn’t eating much throughout the week.

I made sure to try and keep Sadie out of Jimmy’s hair, so we had a little back-of-the-car popsicle date on Friday. Bonus: it got something in her belly and she didn’t even realize my trick 😉 Though she didn’t finish the popsicle it was at least something for our already light eater!

We thought we were at the tail end of things on Friday night, but I started vomiting around midnight and ended up in the emergency room by morning because I was feeling faint and couldn’t keep even keep gatorade down.

Our Weekend in Snapshots and Thoughts

Friday

Sick day for me. I think I took like four two-hour naps as I got over the stomach bug. Sadie and Jimmy were so good to me ❤️

I kept thinking what day is it? What time is it? I got so confused and in such a weird sleep cycle all weekend!
