We decided to let Jacob go to his Lock-In last night--mainly because he hadn't gotten sick yet, and who was to say if he ever would? We didn't want to keep him home only to have him not ever get sick, and also miss out on an event he was totally looking forward to. Sadly--he didn't make it. About 4am he started throwing up. One of the coaches started calling our house at about 4:10am. We have a loud humidifier in our room....it took until about 5:15am for us to hear the phone ring. :0( Anyway, Jake threw up a total of two times at the Sportsplex--thankfully he made it to the bathroom each time. He wasn't so lucky when he got home. Basically-he walked in the door, and vomited. He had a bag with him, but I guess he missed, initially. I found him heaving at the bottom of the stairs (now making it into the bag) and crying. I felt so badly for him. He kept saying he was sorry. Poor thing, we know he couldn't help it. That was about an hour ago. He has been sleeping since then. But, now he just woke up and went into the bathroom.
I am thankful he got sick before the trip. At least we know it won't hit while in the car. Matt, of course, feels like a ticking time bomb. He is the last one.
Jacob was supposed to come with Matt and me to his school this morning for a student led conference. I guess that isn't happening. At least with him. I will probally go alone. Maybe his teacher can tell me something without him. The rest of the day we have conferences scheduled at the high school, and then Nathan's at the Elementary School. I feel like there may not be anything they will tell me that I don't already know, but I like to touch base with the teachers anyway. I fear that Matt will decide not to go, "just in case". Which would be fine--but trying to navigate the halls in the high school is pretty intimidating! Not to mention, the schedule is tight.....so I don't have the time to wander around trying to figure it out.
I fear another long day.....
