Piper vs. Stomach Bug

Tuesday already?! Wow. Time flies when you have a toddler with a stomach bug. That's right, my poor Piper Grace is sick. Thankfully, before she got sick, we had one really fun weekend.

On Friday evening, my husband and I took Piper out to our favorite Sports Bar for dinner. She had so much fun and she was such a good girl. We learned that Piper loves pickles and pretty much anything else that we had on our plates.

On Saturday, we did yard work. Piper played outside with us and we actually got a lot done in our gardens.

On Sunday, Nick's side of the family came over and we colored Easter eggs. Piper enjoyed visiting with everyone but she started to get cranky after a while. It was later that night, or rather at 2 a.m. on Monday when she started to get sick.

This is Piper's first run in with a stomach bug. She was getting sick 4 times an hour for the first 4 hours and then we started to finally get a break around 6 a.m. Monday seemed like it lasted forever and yet, at the same time, it went by fast. By the time I got Piper down for bed last night, I basically collapsed in my own bed with a pint of chocolate ice cream. I did share some of the pint with my husband.
Right as my husband and I were about to go to sleep last night, we heard the cries. Piper was getting sick again. We ended up taking three showers in about two hours. The three of us didn't get to bed until about midnight. Thankfully, we were able to sleep a couple hours after that.
Today, Piper is doing a little better. She is only eating crackers, noodles and rice right now. It's a big improvement from just a couple little crackers yesterday. She's definitely dehydrated so I'm keeping a close eye on her and trying to push fluids all that I can.
