We had to take Little Bro to the emergency room Thursday night. He was diagnosed with rotavirus, which is a nasty stomach bug. He had severe diarrhea and vomitting. I was afraid he was getting dehydrated but luckily he wasn't. We had a wonderful doctor there that instructed us to give him nothing but 10 cc's of pedialite every 15 minutes for a few days.
I couldn't not feed the poor child when he was fussing from hunger. I ended up giving him a small piece of bread for lunch to at least put something in his tummy.
He was doing better yesterday but still had the diarrhea. It wasn't so bad, though, that we couldn't go out. We went to Babies R Us and bought a gate to keep the little monster out of the kitchen. I also bought a digital thermometer for the ear since my other good thermometer disappeared. I think it'll be a good investment since it gives the temperature in 1 second.
Afterwards, we went to eat at a restaurant at Zona Rose called Mimi's Cafe. I wasn't really impressed with the food but was impressed that along with our drinks, the waitress brought us a plate with a small cup of cheerios, a package of crackers, a piece of fruit, a plastic bib, and a wet wipe. That's a first. It was a nice gesture from the restaurant.
Today, I had to finish my overtime that I missed because Little Bro was sick. I worked for a few hours, then came home and cleaned a little. Then we went to the pharmacy to fill an RX for a $25 gift card. I spent the card on a new coffee grinder. I'm so excited that I will get to have my River Market Blend coffee again! I miss it since the old grinder went kaput!
On the Future MILF's front, I've finally broken this plateau and lost another pound. That puts me a total loss for the year of 11.5 pounds. Not exactly where I want to be at the beginning of March but I'll take what I can get. Hopefully, March will bring a better loss for the month.
Now the countdown is on until March 10th for the Snake Saturday Parade. I can't wait! Let's all hope the weather holds out and gives us a warm, sunny day!
