Sick, and Sick Again

My grandson Hunter got to visit the ER over the weekend, with a fine and extra-special case of gastroenteritis. Apparently he felt his tonsillectomy from a couple of weeks ago just wasn't enough contact with medical professionals.

If you're thinking, as I did, "aw, just a bad case of stomach flu", look it up and be scared. I know I am.

I dropped off a care package of Pedialite, Gatorade, and crackers, and discovered that I can hold my breath for exactly four minutes and fourteen seconds when properly motivated. That's how long it took to open the back door, throw the bags into my daughter's kitchen, and jump off the porch into the car.

But in all seriousness, take the time to throw some good thoughts/prayers/vibes their way--the family's had a really rough winter, and it's not over yet.

I'm sorry to hear that. Very easy to dehydrate severely that way.. I hope he's better soon.

We're keeping a close eye on that -- and he appears to be much better already, so I think we're over the hump. Now, for the other grandkid ...

well that's good. Pedialyte is a godsend in that respect

It is -- but expensive. When I get it (you'll know because I'll disappear for about a week) I'll probably try to get through with Gatorade.

Yeah I don't know at what age kids can have Gatorade (their electrolyte needs are different) but their pediatrician can tell you when and how much is good since it is cheaper than freaking pedilyte
