(Didn’t I just brag to a friend or two about how my kids have never been throw-up sick?)
Please pray for Ellery. We found her in her crib this morning with a nasty companion–dried vomit. (Doesn’t that make a mom feel the worst–knowing your child slept in that? She didn’t even cry, so I didn’t know!) She’s only thrown up once since then, and it’s been a couple of hours, so we hope it was just a fluke.
ETA: As of 3:50 p.m., the battle marches on. She continues to be ill, but is taking a nice, long nap. Thank you for your prayers. I wouldn’t choose this for my child, but it certainly helps me focus on Christ’s suffering on Good Friday.
ETA 2: Monday 4/9 – She’s all better! We kept her home from church yesterday just to be sure, but she’s really been alright since Saturday evening. Praise God that this was a quick thing!
