What a Week!

Gosh, I don't even know where to begin.
Parker started getting sick at our hotel (Monday) when we went to Stanford.
Then we got the horrible news that he hast to have surgery again in 3 months.
The night we got home (Tuesday), I started to feel sick, and ended up throwing up all night. Then Parker woke up throwing up some more, and had diarrhea. I had to change his bed twice within 10 minutes, all while I was throwing up.
I eventually had to call Garrett home from work (he has been working nights), and he had to stay with Parker in his room all night.
The next night we decided to stay at my mom's house so she could help me while Garrett was working. Parker refused to eat, sleep, and finally was screaming inconsolably around 1:00 in the morning. We decided to take him to the ER where they gave him Zofran to help the vomiting, fluids, motrin, and tylenol. We left around 3:30, and finally got him to sleep around 4:00.
And my poor little guy lost 3 lbs. from Tuesday to Thursday :( He looks so tiny!
We both finally are starting to feel better, but now my poor mom is sick! She was throwing up all of last night. I feel so terrible. She was helping us through it, and now is suffering! My dad feels sick too, but doesn't seem to have the same thing.
I am trying to care of her and Parker, but luckily she is pretty low maintenance :)
We love you, mom/grammie!

I just pray that Garrett doesn't get it. He must have a crazy immune system to have been around us all this time and feel fine.
I am so thankful for my family.

I haven't even taken pictures of my little cutie pie Valentine yet, but hopefully will tomorrow.
We are going to take Parker on a little picnic (assuming it doesn't rain), and then Garrett and I are going to order pizza and watch a movie after Parker goes to bed. I can't wait to spend the day with my boys.

Awww, poor Parker (and you). That sounds awful! I am glad everyone is feeling better now.
