Sunday's Activities Include: A. is Sick

On Saturday night, A. really didn't want to go to bed. And after a couple hours of various attempts to drag the going to bed process out, she started throwing up. R.'s theory -- based on the sheer volume of what came out -- was that she ate too much. However, that doesn't explain why she kept throwing up for hours, long after even the bile was gone and it was just -- oh, wait, you wanted a warning? Did you _see_ the subject line?

Where was I? Oh, yeah. So, we went through two rounds of bedding, but then I switched her from her room to my bathroom on an aerobed (much, much easier to clean up) and a few blankets later, I switched her to towels, because we have a lot of towels and they take less space in the washer. She pretty much was up all night and so was I. Around 5 a.m., I got sort of concerned about the whole hydration situation, and tried to talk her into drinking some drip drop. No go, so I sent R. out to CVS for Pedialyte. She didn't like that either, but was willing to drink a little of it.

We didn't try to do anything on Sunday, other than see if I could get her to the point where water would stay down. No go. I eventually had R. go get some apple juice boxes and that is staying down and she's much more willing to drink it.

Fortunately, there are a bunch of Anne Calhoun Lancaster, PA novels and novellas that I had not yet read, so at least there was that.
