It's been a bad week for the Crandalls.....

It all started Tuesday night around 6:30pm....Ella started throwing up and we got really nervous because she was throwing up about every five minutes and was in really bad shape. She had zero energy and could barely even hold her own head up. The next day she ate nothing but saltine crackers and Pedialite, but she was incredibly fussy and clingy. By Thursday she appeared to be feeling a lot better so I gave her some formula...which clearly was a bad choice because she immediately threw it up. Later that night, as we were getting into bed, David ran to the bathroom. Yep - now I had two sick babies to take care of! Luckily I did not have to take him to the ER in the middle of the night, but he had a pretty rough night and spent the next few days in bed recovering. He ate dinner tonight and kept it down, but he probably shouldn't have eaten that heavy of a meal because he just told me that his stomach kind of hurts. :(

Ella has been in bed for the past hour or so moaning and rolling around. She clearly does not feel great and is still running a low-grade fever, so I will be calling her doctor again tomorrow, but at least she is not throwing up anymore!

The best news of the week.....pregnant mommy has not gotten sick yet!!!! Keep your fingers crossed!

I know that it seems a bit cruel of me to have taken this picture, but she looked like a little adult standing up next to the toilet and I just couldn't help it! If I would have known that five days later she would STILL not be completely healed, I probably wouldn't have thought it was so cute!

Daddy did such a fantastic job taking care of his sick baby.

It is kind of weird to see Ella so sick because she is not usually a super cuddly baby.....not the case this past week! She just wants to be held!

After bath time....

I have a ton more pictures to post because I haven't posted in a while, but I am tired and I am going to bed!
