Simply feel helpless!! regarding son..

Hi everyone,

Thursday my son went in for his routine weight check at the hospital, and Friday evening the vomiting and diarrhea started. Saturday it continued, and that evening, i was up over 20x with the same, feeling like I was killing these babies. Thankfully by the next day I was better, my Dh got a touch, but my son.. my so special small son, hasn't. And he now has fever too.

The hospital actually called us this morning, and told my dh to bring him in, but i should stay home as over 40 kids each day have come in with something similar. It's the first time I am separated from him when he is sick. How can i get through this, if he has to be there for days??

I just feel helpless.. sorry to vent here!

So sorry to hear this!!! (((HUGS)))


I don't know what I'd do in your shoes. From what I gather, your son is a really picky eater and is on the very small side? I'm hoping, for your sake, that his hospital stay is short. Since you and DH managed to make it through rather quickly, maybe he'll only need a few hours or a day's worth of IV meds and fluids.


That bug tore through my house with a vengence. It was nasty.


Maybe you can get some stuff together ready for him to finish recouping once he gets home?

(((Regina))) I'm so sorry you're all in this situation. Many P&PT that your son is home soon. I just can't imagine being forced to stay home, you poor thing. Poor Eicca.

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry. I hope your little guy is on the mend. How heartbreaking that you can't be by his side... sending P&PT for all of you!

Thank you guys, I went to see him last nite we both just cried when we saw eachother, and i held him for a long time. I stayed at a friend's house but woke up with a cold, but i'll still go back and see him soon. he still has fever, is loosing weight and very tired, but he isnt vomiting or has no poops, so let's see. Thankyou and please continue the positive vibes, we need it!
