We survived...barely!

Ok, so it wasn't as bad as all that...but what a morning!  Tyler woke up at 2 AM this morning having peed his bed...a lot...he actually has not done that since we've had him sleeping in his unders.  And he was REALLY upset.  So I changed him, made him go potty and put him in bed with us.  Then around 6 AM Kelley came into our room complaining she didn't feel good (I think...I really don't remember very well).  But something she said made me have compassion on her and let her climb into our already crowded bed.  I usually send her back to her own because Tyler usually ends up in ours and that's about all the room we have...anywho...so about 6:30 I hear this coughing/vomiting sound and sure enough:  Kelley threw up all over our bed.  This is including the comforter that we JUST barely had cleaned (for $25!) after the cat peed on it...after we'd slept in it for 3 DAYS!  (That was actually back in January I think...but it's hard to choke down a dry cleaning bill like that every month!  For me anyway...)

Joey doesn't dare let me just throw it in the washer for fear I'll ruin it.  Wimp ;)  Anyway, he's probably right on that one....

OK so then we got Kelley cleaned up and her and I went out onto the couch, because Joey didn't want to get up and change the bed sheets, and my side was covered in vomit.  Good thing he didn't though because about 7 or 8 AM Tyler peed all over our bed.  Kelley threw up one more time, but we were prepared this time with a tupperware bowl!

On top of all this our furnace wasn't working this AM.  The same thing happened last year.  It will turn on in the garage, but won't blow air in the house.  We had a technician come out and he told us what was wrong and how he fixed it...do you think we paid attention????  Not enough because we can't figure it out this time either.  Luckily for us we have our gas fireplace and a space heater that have been able to do OK for today.  It's just hard to get the house evenly warm.  The front room and one room with the space heater are fine, but everywhere else is cold.  But I'm still feeling surprisingly optimistic.  I'm trying as hard as I can tonight to plow through my taxes...I know...it's Sunday...but I have my appointment tomorrow and have to get theses done...no choice!!!

Well the good news is the kids stayed home from church with Joey, but seem to be feeling better, except my husband just informed me that Tyler has peed his bed again (yes...I took everything off and did a million loads of laundry all day!)  Tomorrow can only be better right?

What a night! Sorry about that.

Our furnace was doing that too at the beginning of this year. I wish I could remember how he fixed it for you...I do remember it took him a really long time to even figure out what was going on.

I seriously hope you day is going better today. DO you think Tyler might have a UTI?? Does he say it burns. I know one of the symptoms of UTI is going to the bathroom a lot. (also a symptom of diabetes). Just trying to help. Poor Kelley. I have had those days and I totally sympathize. Good luck today!

What a night. I hope they are feeling better now. I hope you have heat now.

We had that problem with the furnace and Brice figured it out because we didn't want to deal with going through the management company or paying for someone else to fix it. I'll ask him if he'd be willing to check it for you and see if it is the same thing that was wrong with ours.

Wow. you really are an optmistic person, aren't you? I've had a few nights like that, and usually end up throwing myself a pity party. Or patting myself on the back for being such a cool-headed mom. either will work. lol.
