Do over, please.
River being sick has all kinds of secret meaning to me... my mind starts running as soon as he catches any kind of stomach bug... "Oh no, is he going to be just like his momma?" Of course, the fact that he has never been on antibiotics in his lil' life (so far) usually calms me down. I don't know what caused my liver to begin failing, but maybe I can keep River's from doing the same... at least until they find a cure "momma approved". For now, River takes his multi-vitamin and an extra dose of Vitamin C (Vitamin C has been linked to expelling the HCV virus from children) and he eats a pretty well balanced, low sodium diet. That, with no damage from antibiotics and over-the-counter drugs should at least prolong the onset of symptoms (I pray) for him in the future. My poor baby. I don't know how moms do it with hurting children... I just sat there and watched him (now I know how Jason feels with me) so helpless... waiting to see if he needed anything. Once he wakes up this morning back to himself, I will sigh and do a nervous laugh..."See...he-he-he... everything's fine, River is OK." Then I'll have aunty Rylee and Ahma come over and do a little Easter egg hunt with us this afternoon. :)
