Tired of sick sick sick

I think I talk about being sick a lot on my blog, and the past 3 months, I've had reason to. We've had a lot of illnesses running through our household, this last one hit our smallest member quite hard though. Today he was on day 5 of the stomach flu (athena was over it in 12 hours just so you get the picture), I finally had to take him to Children's Hospital where they gave him IV fluids. You could just see the color come back to his face, his eyes not looking quite so sunken, it was amazing. He was still very lethargic and weak, but they thought it would be best to take home to rest. He is perking up a little as of right before bedtime tonight. He tried to walk but still can't stand unassisted because he is so weak. I am really hoping he makes it through the night without any vomiting as we have had 4 straight nights of this (one of the nights we were all sick!). I am pretty sure we have done 20 loads of laundry since he is too little to tell us when he is going to be sick, we just use towels. Anyway, I just wanted to update folks on his health. He does seem to be turning the corner but I'm keeping my fingers crossed because he fooled us yesterday by perking up just a bit, and then took a turn for the worse today. Here are some photos to journal what has been going on, don't worry, there aren't any gross ones!
The massive mountain of clean laundry piled up in the corner of the living room.
Kids watching a DVD together, resting and hydrating.
Sleeping on mama (this is what he did almost all day thursday and friday).
Just cleaned up after an "episode". Ready to watch "Thomas".
The mountain of arts/crafts Athena has created in her boredom.

He looks so sad. Hope things are starting to get back to "normal."
