Ever seen a cyanotic baby??

Well, I have. It's pretty damn scary!

Turns out thaqt Ryan's new antiobiotic, Augmentin is tearing up his stomach.

As in explosive diarrhea. I can't believe I'm blogging about this, btw. I mean, who writes about the diarrhea that their kid has??!!

Apparently me.

Anways, back on topic...

Starting this morning, he shocked me by suddenly and with NO warning at ALL, opened his mouth and shot a fountain of throw-up across the room and on me! All OVER me..and the computer..and the floor...and on him. Which led to me using THREE towels to clean it all up with.

As if I wasn't running late already.


Once, I got him changed and myself into some clean clothes (although I wound up smelling like soured baby formula all day), I took him and Dalton to daycare.

On the way there, he puked AGAIN!!! A-freaking-GAIN!! ALLLLLLL over my car. Thank God that the Honda Element is designed to be hosed out!

I got that cleaned up with one of my sweaters.

*sigh* Which means I went all day at work freezing my ass of, because apparently Chad prefers to live in Arctic tempuratures.

In the middle of the day, I got a call from daycare that Ryan had puked 3 more times...all over everything and everyone. And that he had to be changed 3 times into different outfits because of the diarrhea.

Sooo...I had to go get him. They also told me that his lips kept turning blue and he was having a hard time breathing. Of course, they didn't tell me THAT until I got there!! If they had, I would have broken every freaking traffic law out there!

It's a scary and helpless feeling to watch your child vomiting so hard that he can't breathe and to watch his lips turn blue before your eyes!

It turns out that babies can get cyanotic very easy from vomiting, so unless his lips stay blue for an extended period of time, then it's not really a big deal.

But now we have ANOTHER doctor visit to make. If he can't even keep his food or antiobiotic DOWN, then he needs something else!

Poor kid..................

In other news, I myself wound up going to the doctor last night. I also have an ear infection. Ryan was first, then Dean, now me! I'm hoping that Dalton doesn't get it next!
