Puke and Poop: Repeat!

This post is about my sick nine-year-old and all the lovely bodily functions that come along with the stomach flu. I understand if you don't want to read or comment, but this is what's going on in my world since yesterday.

My big boy is sick.  It all started yesterday when I went in to wake him up for school and noticed he was kind of moaning in his sleep. I asked him what was up and he said his stomach hurt. I told him to at least try to get up and have breakfast and promised him we'd take it slow and see how he did. Three bites into his waffles, he runs to the bathroom and loses it out of both ends. :( He got a quick shower and went back to bed.  The day was uneventful and by evening he had a great dinner and I figured all would be back to normal this morning, which was good because Wednesdays are pretty busy for me. WRONG!  He puked at 1 am. He puked and pooped himself at 4 am. He pooped himself at 8 am and he pooped himself at 9 am and he pooped himself just now in the bathtub. It has to be a boy thing. My friend said her little girl would flip out if she lost control of herself in her pants or in the tub. My son acts like it's no big deal!!  :/

So, today is all about taking care of him and getting him back to his old self again. DH is out of town for work (which absolutely figures) so it's me against the world today. Bring it! I've got Clorox, Lysol, AND butt wipes. :)

If you are here from ICLW, you can get caught up with what's going on with us here.


  1. Poor Guy! I think its the kind of flu that is going around. Ive heard this from a few moms lately( about kids pooping themselves). Have fun sanatizing.

  2. Eek, sounds horrific! Poor liitle guy... Hope he's on the mend for both ofyour sakes :)

  3. Oh no, poor thing That doesn't sound like any fun at all but sounds like he is being a champion about it. Hope he feels better soon.

  4. Ugh... poor little guy and poor you! I hope he feels better real soon, for both your sakes.


  5. Aww that sucks! Poor lil guy! I've been having the same problem! I swear there is some nasty stomach thing going around!

  6. Oh - I feel so bad for both of you. Being that sick is really awful. I know in my house, we got plopped on the toilet with a bowl or a trash can so that we could take care of both ends. I hope that he starts feeling better soon!

  7. Happy ICLW!

    So sorry to hear your boy is sick, and so sorry for you that your DH is away and you have to clean up all those messes on your own!! *hugs* I hope he feels better very soon!

    Best of luck with your upcoming IVF cycle too. xx
