Yeah. Toast!

We've been hit with the stomach flu...or some bug. Chris woke up screaming at 5:30 this morning. Screaming, and Eric darted into the bathroom, threw him standing in the tub. His mouth and stomach were making independent noises, and it upset him terribly.

I think he's forgotten how to puke.

He got so worked up, it was worse, him trying to keep it down than just letting loose. Poor Baby. I took him into bed with me, he slept for all of 20 minutes, before another round. Then we sat on the couch all morning and cuddled. We watched the PBS morning lineup. And he felt adventurous to eat toast. He actually wanted Peanut Butter, but I said No. I remembered the BRAT diet of stomach bug. Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast. Well, Chris ate the toast then applesauce. Sam started out on bananas this morning (coincidently before he got sick) and they did not stay, nor did the rice cereal. Though I've heard people add things to the BRAT diet, like Tea or Yogurt (BRATTY) or upgrade through all manner of clear liquids.

The toast stayed down for Chris.
