When it rains it pours....

Wow, that saying couldnt be more true than at this moment...
Where to begin?
This weekend was rough. Reagan started really being irratable, tugging his ears, refusing to sleep and eat, etc. Saturday night. All three of us were wide awake for the entire night (no exageration).So Nick and I took him to the Urgent Care when they opened at 8am Sunday morning. It was a mess to say the least... their computers were down, they weighed him and told us that he weighed 11 lbs.. Really? haha.. Anyway. We walked out with a percription for Amox and clearly something else (more to come later).
I dropped off Nick and the Reagan at home before heading to church and lunch with my mom and sister Meg. I came back that afternoon for a big nap and got stuff ready for school the next day. That night I started getting really bad stomache cramps. Reagan decided it was going to be another no sleep night for him or us.... grr... as the night/morning went on I proceeded to get sicker and sicker. At about 3 am I called in a sub and frantically wrote sub plans. Nick also took off work also on Monday so he and my mom could take Reagan to a new pediatrician. I spent all day in the bathroom getting sick and they would come in and out giving me updates on the baby. Turns out he had 2 very bad ear infections and a swollen throat. They doubled the dosage for the amox. The ped told my mom that a bad stomach flu was going around... hmmm. I must have gotten it from that urgent care?!
Side note- my sis called later that day and she was sicker than a dog with the stomach bug as well!!
Monday night I finally stopped throwing up . Nick slept again out on the couch and Reagan (again) refused to sleep. I woke up feeling soo much better today. (I called out sick again). I washed the sheets, towels, scrubbed toilets, and lysoled the whole house. My mom watched Reagan at her house and then we got a phone call from Nick. He was leaving work early because he was sick. OMG. My mom has been so amazing. She took Reagan home to her house for the night and cancelled her dinner date. I am planning on going back to work tomorrow. I have so much to do with my kiddos , this is really crap for timing!
Please keep Nick and Reagan in your prayers!
I need my healthy family back soon!
