So the week starts off **See Update at end of post

with a 3 am phone call. Actually 3 phone calls. Why 3? Because I use my cell phone as my alarm. I kept thinking - in my sleepy state - that my alarm was going off and I kept turning it off.
No Mom of the Year award this year.

S2 - Mom, I'm going to the ER.

There is a bad strain of the vomits going around the college of yellow and purple. S2 looked especially bad according to his roommate - who was talking to me at 4 am, after they got to the hospital.

The roommate says that he will keep me posted. I finally fell asleep at 5. Got up at 6. Pouring the coffee in.

Waiting for the phone to ring.

**S2 is fine. After 2 shots in his hip and two bags of saline he is back in his dorm and only sick once an hour now. That is manageable to him and by tomorrow he should be fine.

I was once on-call for work and kept turning the cell phone off too at 4 am. I am so glad I don't have to do that again. I hope your son feels better soon!
