Sick Rian

Worst thing EVER to have your baby sick.

Much as their strong personality is a ton of work (and Melissa O called it, they might not be as fun as we would like... yep, and intense, and difficult, and frustrating)

But Rian got sick and became lethargic and dehydrated with vomitting. My usual chubby guy lost his buddha belly and the chipmunk cheeks. We didn't have to put the gates up as he wasn't crawling.

After taking him to the doctors every day of his illness (love socialized medicine... love being able to freely exercise our universal human right to health care!), he just wasn't getting better.

So off to the BC Children's ER where we were handed a syringe. A simple syringe to get the pedialyte into him (5 ml every 5 min). He was perky again in about an hour!

Here he is - feeling better - with a paper tray on his head!

And don't blame me for these 'tourist' pics - his Nanna thought he was cute! Grandmothers!

... and he's slowly gaining his belly and cheeks back!

    Oh, wow. I only saw Rian when he was on the mend, and you weren't kidding: he really did lose his round little cheeks and belly. How scary for you! I'm so glad he's back to his chubby, healthy self.

    Glad to hear that he is getting better! It's true, the worst times I've ever had with my kids were when they were really sick.
