Icky sicky.

M – Another quick (pictureless) update on a healthier household. Today is another; better day. Mango is fine – although needed scads of ‘fresh air time’ to reduce the redness a diaper covers. She is eating better (as in, her food and drink stay down). I listened to her cry every 45 minutes (anyway from 1/2 hour to an hour). I blearily went to bed a just after 6:00 a.m., after D was woken up and Mango (and I) felt more comforted). Mango had a bit to eat (we had her following the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast), as well as trying to sneak in some Pedialyte where possible. Good thing we are close friends with a pharmacist and related to a doctor. It helped us to be aware of other possible warning signs. This morning, she was laughing and seemed to enjoy more (including a sizeable portion of my bagel).

All’s getting rosier here. Have to go now, as she is just waking up from her afternoon nap.Soon she’ll be back to the Mango we know – the one loving life.


  1. …sorry that the icky-sicky situation isn’t over yet…hope Mango gets better soon…

  2. Guess down-time is longer than thought. She is still pretty alert, curious, and cheerful (between bouts of vomit, etc).
