Stomach Flu

Jimmie has the stomach flu. )-: He started throwing up last night around 10:30pm and he either threw up or dry heaved every hour until about 3am. Rachael started his 2am feed and after 8mls he started retching so she stopped it. She has been concerned about dehydration so she's been offering him water with an electrolyte powder in it and "lo and behold" our little man has been drinking it! He's been taking it from a soft tipped sippy cup. He's kind of chewing on it more than sucking, but Rachael can tell he is swallowing and he's taken in about 3/4ths of the cup!

Rachael said he has been resting fairly peacefully for a while now so we are hoping the worst is over. Please pray for our little Jimmie Jim Jim . . .

  1. He is the most beautiful baby. Get well quickly, Jimmie. It's hard to beleive that all 14 lbs. of him will be a year old next week! God is good.
