Emma started our bout with sickness when she woke up Dec. 20 with a fever. The next night she started puking.

This cracker is the first thing Emma ate in 2 days. When we took her to the doctor Tuesday he told us if she doesn't start drinking more soon she would need to be admitted to the hospital. We bought everything we could think of that Emma might like to drink; Pedialyte, Sprite, Gatorade, we even tried mixing them all together. After all that her drink of choice was still milk.

This picture was taken the day after Christmas. Emma still wasn't 100%. Even though all the kids got a head cold and AJ had an ear infection, we felt lucky that Emma was the only one who ended getting the stomach flu.

Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry you had to deal with all of that at Christmas! Thank goodness Emma didn't have to be admitted.

Hope everyone's feeling better.

Poor Emma, she looks miserable! I am glad she was feeling a little better on Christmas so she could enjoy it all!
