Sick again.

It seems we have a stomach bug. Cody was not feeling well yesterday morning, complaining of a tummy ache and the runs. I wanted to keep him home from school in the afternoon, but he really wanted to go. He said he was all better by then, so I took him. Now I wonder whether that was a mistake. Jamie was up at 2 a.m. with a tummy ache. That familiar sense of dread came over me. I sat with him in the bathroom until 3:10 a.m. when I finally woke Mike up and asked if he could do anything with Jamie. Jamie was refusing to go back to bed and complaining of stomach pain but was not able to get much out of his system. Mike got him to bed within about five minutes, so then I felt like a jerk for waking him up. I couldn't sleep for a long time after that, and I don't think he could either. The highways were really bad last night so I was hoping Mike would not have to go to work today, but he did. Unfortunate, seeing I woke up with bad stomach pain and that horrible queasy feeling. Jamie is still in pain and not himself, and I feel really gross. Cody is fine, and Micah seems okay too. Bring on the long weekend. Woo.
