Hi-whoever reads this.
ok, let me explain my situation first. Earlier in this month my kindergardener
stayed home on a Thursday because of stomach cramps
so bad she was crying.
She threw up only a few times and it was it, no more sickness. That next Friday
night Me and my 1 year old was sick; fever,chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrea, and the works!
We were sick well into Sunday, although baby had diarrea for a week after.
Then that Sunday my husband was sick for a few days. After that my 4 year old (I have 4 kids in case you were wondering)
threw up and had a little diarrea
for that day, that was all. My 10 year old didnt get sick at all to my surprise.
After we were all well at the time being, we saw a strain of a virus going
around in our county on the news called "Shigellosis". I just knew that was
what we had! Another week passed by and me and my little 1 year old was sick again,
only it was not as bad as it was the first time and no fever at all. Somehow,
my 4 year old cannot get over it. He will have episodes of it every other weekend since.
He will have vomiting and diarrea for 2-3 days and get over it for a week or so.
Only this past christmas he was sick with it. Got over it after christmas,
now it is December 29th and he is sick this morning with it. It makes his stomach
hurt pretty bad then he starts it all again. Only this morning he doesnt have
diarrea, yet I guess. Is anyone getting all of this? I need to know what is going
on. I plan on taking him to the doctor of course cuz this is going way out of control.
Does anyone know what is wrong? No one has been sick but him. It is making
me very sad cuz he is my little boy. Thank you for listening. God bless you. Sincerely, Starla.
