There's More to Our Story

It has been a tiring, stressful week in the All Access Pass to Jack household. We thank you so much for your prayers and support. Jack did not vomit again last night and he settled into a restful sleep a little after midnight. He did not wake up crying any after that.

Apparently, Jack's recent stomach virus has temporarily (we hope) slowed down his ability to move food through his stomach resulting in nighttime vomiting. And he has a viral sinus infection and another ear infection.

This morning, he was a little irritable but he's usually that way when he has a new ear infection. He was fine after a little motrin. He went to school today. Ms. Sunny reports that he spent most of the day laughing. Ms. Denise was happy to report that he identified mini oreos as the black cookies.

Jack has had several rough nights from the vomiting that have left his parents completely exhausted. Children, however, bounce back from exhaustion a lot quicker. We were too tired to think of anything else wanted Jack to see what other children do when they are not at school so we let him watch a few You Tube videos. He has recently developed a fascination for little Ali so we watched her You Tube videos a few times. He was fond of her rendition of the ABC's but the Alabama Tutorial really got him moving.

It's 10 pm and Jack seems to be resting well and has not vomited. We are praying for a restful night's sleep. Good night!

I am so glad to hear. I had to check in to see how Jack was doing. I'm sure he's in better spirits from feeling better, too. Hope he continues to rest well.

So sorry Jack has been so sick. Those vomiting bugs are the worst. At least things seem to be getting better. He is such a sweet little guy!! I hope everyone is better and well rested very soon.

I'm glad to hear that Jack is feeling a bit better. This stomach bug that seems to be going around North America is terrible. Time to ban vomiting I think...

I hope he continues to improve and that the whole family can get some much needed rest!

I hope Jack is feeling better. They do jump back my better than we do. I think they just suck the energy out of us and keep going. Black cookies...cute!

"Good Night" used to be simple words before parenthood!

So happy to hear Jack is feeling a little bit better. We've had that nasty bug over at our house and it's slowed everyone down.
Love that his spirits are being lifted by watching some videos.

Glad everyone's feeling better, and Jack's just too cute in the video! My son's favorite on YouTube is "The Dinosaur Song" from the Big Green Rabbit.
