Oh Laura....

We have started to call it the "hose virus", the past two times that Chloe has had it, we could just point her like a fire hose as the stuff came out!

The diapers are by far the worst. Breathe through your ears Honey!!

We've never had the thread "you know your a parent when", in my case it will always be the time I fished in one of those diapers to find the phenergan suppository that we were using to treat Finn's rotavirus and replaced it... aacckkkk. TMI.

Aseptic hugs to you all and little Cammy most of all.

PS. Putting Chloe's pedialyte into a newborn sized bottle (4 oz) and warming it up seemed to fool her into thinking that she was getting fed. Cam is bigger and smarter but it might help.

Catherine, my love, Camille is set on being the polar opposite of her older sister who couldn't countenance pedialyte in any form, hidden in any manner- I think we're going to have to wean her off that stuff- Cam now prefers it to formula, if you can believe! She's such a fruitcake!

The incessant diarrhea (sorry[:I]) she's had since Friday has lessened- I can finally put clothes on her- fine time, since we hit a cold snap and we're hovering around zero. That's right, I said zero.[xx(] Not fair! Pittiful, pittiful Mullers[:o)][:o)]

Oh Laura, I feel for you! Will was in the hospital at 5 months with RSV, Influenza A, and ear infection...then of all things he came down with Rota while we were there. I told the nurse about his diapers...she took one whiff and said "ROTA". Sure enough...another virus! It was putrid! I will NEVER forget the smell or look as long as I live. I could DX that crap (Literally!) with my eyes shut! UGHHH!

Glad to hear that she is doing better! And sheesh...whats up with that weather! We had a sunny 60 degrees today! [:p]

Ok, I fold. Still, I hid the critter's face for a couple days after her gleep bout, for very parvo-virus/5th disease cheeks. At this point, does it matter any more?

Croup? Croup? I HATE croup. It's so hard to choose between those two evils- the sound of a strangling child and all night in a steamy bathroom with all that crying *usually mine* - or the ooooh-uck factor of the rotavirus. I'm torn... Hope your sweet pea feels better soon.

And sherry-- 60 degrees? Oh you bragger! I'm just yearning for my sandals, but the days that aren't bitterly cold are wet and flooding from all the snow melting [:(!] I spent all afternoon yesterday looking for old fashioned maryjanes with no sandal-ly holes for the big one- easter dress, white stockings and standing water do not mesh well. Oh well!
