tummy issues

Right about now, I'm usually feeding goldfish crackers and apple juice to a coterie of preschoolers. Not so today, obviously.

Last night Darius barfed, as in actual attack-of-the-ickies and not just generic immature baby sphincter stuff. He was one miserable little man. To top it off, when he got up this morning he was borderline inconsolable and rather lethargic. So I called in sick- I didn't want to expose his cousins to some unknown bug. Tylenol made him feel better for a couple hours--he chased the cat with only slightly less zeal than usual--but he soon sank back into lethargy.

I took him in to the Instacare, where we got the brilliant diagnosis of short-lived stomach bug. Never mind his red throat and continuing cough; apparently those aren't interesting. I was told to get him to drink/eat what I could, but to worry mostly about hydration and just keep an eye on things. He should be all better in a couple days. Well, here's hoping.

To add to the insanity, I'm making my SIL's wedding cake for Friday night.Between caring for Darius and myself (i'm starting to feel off myself) I've been making marshmallow fondant. It's super easy, just tedious- I had to melt the marshmallows in a double boiler and it took ages. I keep trying to figure out in my head when all the different elements need to be made, and I keep confusing myself.

Fun stuff.
