What a night...

And one I don't want to repeat in a hurry. As I said in yesterday's post, I've got a bit of a virus. Me and Pip both have gastroenteritis, and it would seem to be Norovirus too, what with the huge waves of nausea, aching limbs, stomach cramps, as well as the usual unsavoury symptoms. But we were most concerned with keeping Marnie safe and well. that all fell apart about 7pm when Marnie began vomiting up her feed - she's not normally prone to sicking anything up, so the ferocity of her reaction really scared us both. We took her to the hospital, where they checked her for dehydration and assured us she'd be OK. However, when we got back home, and after attempting to give her some more food (keeping the food routine going is obviously very important) she was violently sick once again. So, with both of us feeling more ill than we ever have, Marnie joined us in the bed, and we spent the whole night checking she was OK. Today is a day for slow, gentle feeding, little and often, and monitoring the situation. the doctor has said she may well have the vomiting for two or three days.
