OK, shortly after I posted I got a call back from the doctor’s office saying the doctor wanted to check Will out this morning. So I made some phone calls trying to find someone to stay with Elise. I found out that ours is not the only house with sickness in it right now. Nana (John’s mom) said she’d come and sit with her as she was already not feeling too well herself, so she wouldn’t have to worry about getting it from Elise. Now that I’m back from the doctor Elise seems to be feeling better and hasn’t thrown up since before I left. She is keeping 7-up down. She’s lying in the couch watching cartoons still, and I’m hoping she’ll drift off to sleep in a awhile.
The good news about Will is he is not infected. This being the first time I’ve had a baby boy, there was some more explanation needed as to how to clean him properly. (blush) Anyway, I understand better what I was doing wrong, and Will just needs some vaseline for the next few days to help the irritation to get better. So that is good news.
Will weighs 16 lbs. 6 oz., by the way. So he’s gained a little over a pound in the last month, which keeps him pretty much in the same percentile he was before.
Well, I’m off to do some sewing now. Of course now it is almost lunchtime. And then I’ll need a nap . . . Hopefully I will get some sewing done today.
