We Caught a Stomach Bug
So, a few days ago, our daughter began exhibiting signs of an upset stomach (diarrhea, gas, bloated tummy, etc.), and I assumed it came from eating something that she just didn't agree with. Then the night before last, she began refusing her food. I started to feel a bit nauseous myself. Then...it happened. I couldn't hold food down and became riddled with pain. My husband left work at 3AM just to drive me to the E.R. because I couldn't drive myself.
To sum it up, I'm still not feeling too well, but our daughter seems to have symptoms that come and go. I feel awful because when her tummy cramps up, I feel helpless because I feel that there isn't much that I can do. Her pediatrician recommended perhaps giving her gas drops and Tylenol for pain, but that just doesn't seem to provide justice. I'm still pretty much bed ridden and can barely hold her at times when she's in pain.
Are there any safe home remedies you ladies have tried that could help her feel any better? Of course we can take all types of nausea medication and something for pain, but what about something for toddlers?? Is there maybe a toddler-safe medicine I could give her?
I hope she feels better. My prayers are with you all.
