And, Mikayla's in the Lead...

Currently, Mikayla appears to be beating her brother out in the "upchuck" contest. I think she is at #6. However, in terms of mess, Brayden had her way beat out.

At least this thing is quick-rebounding. For as "quiet as a mouse" as Brayden was on Friday, he was pretty much bouncing off the walls yesterday. I suspect Mikayla will be very lethargic today and then rearing to go again. John and I have both felt a little bit of this stomach crud, but nothing to the extent as the kids (John, a little worse off than me- though my cough and hoaseness give me the lead in outward sympathy).

Nothing compares to the great "Flu Fandango" of Christmas 2005, though - so this is small stuff. We had a very cozy day yesterday, having opted to give away our tickets, stay out of the rain, and watch football from home. Mikayla and I escaped to Target in the morning, (I was suffering some serious cabin fever). As dangerous as that place is, oh, it is so therapeutic!

Today Michele comes down with the kids and they'll stay through Tuesday evening. Despite this latest turn of events with Mikayla, I think the tide is turning...

I'm just now (11am) posting this picture of what Mikayla looks like right now - after about 10 "episodes" she finally fell asleep for an extended period of time, probably going on 3 hours. Praise God! Hopefully, she'll wake up without feeling the need to walk around with a bucket...

I would say, Go Mikayla, but maybe not in this instance...

Because it looks a little odd - I just wanted to point out that her hand is there to try to keep her stomach from hurting...!

I thought maybe she got that gesture from her dad :)

Gosh, I hope everybody's feeling better. How miserable.

I think the worst story I've ever heard was my sister in law's family experience with some bad bacon that hit all 4 members in the middle of the night. She said it was so horrible it almost became comical. But not quite.

I can't believe I just said that.

Actually I think it's because it reminds me of the other Heather's boyfriend who would be asleep next to me in Shanne's truck when he took me home, hogging the entire seat and in that sort of pose. I didn't mean it as a nasty comment, I swear!
