After throwing up for five straight days, causing some pretty intense dehydration, he is finally back to his normal self.
We had the most wonderful day today, just happy to be healthy and able to go do our normal things. Monday's library day, doing the laundry together, and following along with Carson's imaginative games were especially delightful. (For most of the day, Carson was Tyrone. He called me Tasha and Everett Pablo. He has actually only seen 5 minutes of the Backyardigans show. He got scared when Tyrone fell off his horse and refuses to watch it again.)
Last week when Carson was sick was one of the most exhausting of my life! I spent one night laying beside him to give him sips of Pedialyte every half hour. I carried him around all day when he was too weak to walk. I had to withhold food from him even when he was begging me for it, because I knew he would throw it right back up. The worst was all the cleaning up... I finally broke down and cried while taking apart his car seat and cleaning out the back of the car after one particular throwing up episode. Maybe I am a wimp, but I am so glad it's over.
Anyway, I had so much fun just talking with him all day today! Carson is my favorite little conversationalist.

"Look, mom, my apple is a letter C!" My other favorite thing that Carson said today, bringing me a library book, was "Mom, teach me everything that's in here."
