No stoppin the Poop!

Goodness Gracious! I'm so sick of poop! The girls are still pooping, with no end in sight. I'm at a my whits end as to what i should do. I am going to call the dr. tomorrow and see if there is some magical drug i can give them. I'm a bit worried that they aren't getting enough food and enough hydration...Sam seems a bit lethargic at times. BUT, i think she's just a bit more tired from the whole pooping thing. I can't believe we're going on one whole week of the poops!

Not much to report other than lots of poop!

Sat night dinner was just OK. We went to this place called Canyon Cafe and just as i had remembered, food wasn't very good and the place was just not all THAT. Other than that, of course we had a great time. It was nice to be away and get out of the house since we truly haven't been able to get out of the house much this past week. Poor babies have got to be bored with being in this darn house all day long. I'm sure it's driving them just as crazy as it's driving us.

I have to say, this weekend was nice for lots of extra rest. Sunday afternoon, we ALL took a 2 hour nap. When i mean ALL, i mean Paul, H & I slept in our bed(she loves sleeping with us) and S & S slept in their bed for a whole 2 hours. It was nice, despite the fact that i wanted to ring gracyes neck for barking at something outside and waking me up for a few minutes. Today we also had some good sleep. The girls didn't sleep well, but when they woke up, Paul & I both held one(i know, we shouldn't spoil them) and they went back to sleep until we WOKE THEM UP! LOL! I think they could sleep for hours on end, if we just held them in our arms!

I'm taking Hannah to school tomorrow and the girls are going to stay home with me. I have a feeling we'll be missing all week b/c of this sickness. I definitely can't take them to school sick like this. It was nice to have a 3 day weekend and have Paul helping me changing all these nasty diapers. It would be nice to have a washer to wash all the nasty clothes..but hopefully the dryer will be fixed by the end of the week. If it isn't, i'm going to be one mean mad mama!

Hope everyone had a nice safe Labor day! To most, this day means the end of summer. To us, it means another month or more of HEAT. I do look forward to nice cool weather..i know the girls are looking forward to it too. We are going to relish playing outside on the playset that has been sitting out in the backyard we haven't really seen in months with all the heat, sarah's stap, Hannah's surgery on her foot and Pauls Salmonella. Lots of weekends have been spent sitting in the cool house, away from bugs, skeeters, and heat.

I'm so sorry to hear the poop situation isn't getting any better. I would not worry about them eating, just make sure they are drinking enough. Call the pedi and keep us posted!! sorry Brenda! ::HUGS::

Oh no, this is too much! Thinking of you. I wish I can get my clan to all take 2 hour naps - it never happens in our house.

Poor Mommy! I hope the pooping stops soon for ya!

Missy said...

Ugh! Sorry to hear that they still have this bug. When my girls had this a year & 1/2 ago - our ped recommended Culterelle. It is a pill that contains the active cultures that are in yogurt and you open the pill & put in something cold like juice. It stopped the poop in 2 days. Ask your ped & see if she suggests it. Hope this helps!

Did your girls have that vaccine for rotovirus?? My girls did...Blake didn't and he got it. All they do is poop and it smells horrible!! It last about a month with Blake. It was awful--I wish you the best of luck. I would definitely get those girls to the dr!! :)
