I wrote earlier about Lizze and Elliott both being sick. I mentioned my concern of Gavin getting sick as well. Having said that, sometimes things just work out for the Lost and Tired family.
While it doesn’t happen very often, I’m more than grateful when it does.
It appears as though no one is actually sick. Lizze nausea seems to be tied to her back pain right now. As she finds more comfortable positions to sit in the nausea kinda goes away.
As far as Elliott, the puker goes, he’s acting “normal”. He’s hungry and wants to play. I noticed that he had a runny nose this morning and I think I pieced together what happened last night or rather, early this morning.
Elliott has an extremely sensitive gag reflex. It doesn’t take much for him to vomit. What happens is that when he gets post nasal drip going down the back of his throat, he will gag. Once he gags, it’s all over, literally.
I’m pretty confident that’s what happened. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time. Plus, the fact that he’s hungry and wants to play is not consistent with his behavior while actually sick.
Thanks God for the small favors. Hopefully, we’ll escape this being something bigger and everyone will be fine today.
