1 for 6

That's the score with the war agaisnt the stomach bug! 

He's winning!

Bailey got to go to daycare one time this week.

Sid got to go to work 2 1/2 days this week.

Me?  I got to go all week long because, well, I just got to!

I'm thankful for Sid's work that he can take off like he can and especially thankful for Nene's work that she can take off as much as she can when it's not really her responsiblity to do so.  We really appreciate it!

Kylie says the stomach bug lasts between 7-10 days and we believe her.  This morning, Sid thought he needed to just take her on to the doctor.  He was worried about her dehydrating.  But after she got up this morning and was able to drinka and eat and keep it all down and in, he decided against it.  It's just going to have to run it's course.

In the meantime, we now have a comforter that has to be dry-cleaned and a house that smells like the cleaning isle at Dollar General.  Which means major headaches for us Whitehead's because we don't tolerate smells well at all.  But then again, we don't tolerate the stomach bug well either. 

So yeah, the stomach bug is winning.  And worst of all, my newphew's 1 year old b'day party is Saturday in Alabama.  As of right now we are still up in the air about going, but probably won't because no parent wants this crappy bug in their house, I can assure you of that.

One positive of the week - Remember my one unspoken prayer request earlier in the week.  Well, God so faithfully answers us in the way we wanted to be answered, and we are very very thankful.  You know who you are and we love you so much and never wish for you to experience that anxiety again! 

Please keep Sid's grandfather and especially his grandmother in your prayers.  Things are just not going well.  Home Health has started coming and so far it's been more of a problem than a help.  But this will work itself out.
