Jakson's Scottish Rite visit

Last weekend while I had the stomach bug I still had to watch Jakson. My parents were home that night and helped me out. I was really hoping that he wouldn't get the bug, but unfortunately he did :(

Sunday he started throwing up. I am talking, not his normal spit up. He wasn't keeping anything in his belly and all he wanted to do was sleep. So on Monday when he barely ate and wasn't holding anything down we called the doctor, and they told us to head down to Scottish Rite. We waited for a couple of hours. Once they saw Jaks they gave him an IV and he got fluids for an hour. Then we "baby bird" fed him a pedialyte. They then let me nurse him and he held everything down. They tested his electrolytes and everything looked good. They let us go home at 11pm. We were so thankful to get out of there with a healthy baby. As soon as we got home, hubby started throwing up :( We hope that stomach bug stays away from us now. It was no fun for any of us!

Jaks before he got his IV. He was so happy which was so crazy since he hadn't eaten once all day. The nurse told us that he won her cutest patient of the day award :)

Jaks sleeping in his daddy's arms while getting fluids. Watching my sweet little angel with the IV in his arm really made me think about how blessed we are to have a healthy child. There are so many parents who basically live in hospitals with their sick children. It just doesn't seem fair and it really made my heart ache for them.
