Nothing new...most of us have been through this. I don't have any questions or need advice...I just need to write. He was just sick before Christmas with a vomiting thing...and here we are, back on the bucket again! He woke up at 6am saying his tummy hurt, so I immediately gave him Zofran (his brother had thrown up on Thursday). He got up, no fever, was hungry, ate breakfast, was naughty and loud as usual, so I sent him to school. But, he ended up throwing up. Now, it's large ketones, and BG checks every hour...and I'm so TIRED of this!!!!!!! Just gave him some more Zofran (although it did nothing last time), and he is drinking some water. Managed to keep down some regular ginger ale, so I was able to bolus him. Time for another ketone check soon....blah, blah, blah, same old stuff. Ahhh, those good old days when vomiting only meant holding the bucket, rubbing their backs, and knowing it will be over soon. This comes on the heels of my older son (nonD) breaking his wrist on Sunday afternoon at a friend's house and spending yet another sleepless night in the ER. He's actually doing really well now...it was a bad break...but he was a real trooper. Can I make a retroactive New Year's wish....please, please, please, let me go at least 2 years without seeing the inside of an ER...is that too much to ask??? Okay, rant over. Ketone check time. Wish us luck.
