I think we are getting better

I am definately at full strength again. Full ability to take care of the girls, full ability to avoid housework; full ability to eat normally. Shoot - I've always wished that loss of appitetie thing would hang around even after I'm well.

Natalie and Abigail are mysterious. They are definately not themselves, although Abby played a little today. They are still throwing up a few times a day, but I think it's reflux related and not sickness related. They are doing a lot of "swallowing" in the reflux way you do to keep food down. The downside of that as well is that they throw up their reflux meds. Then we have a vicious circle. Natalie, especially, acts very tired and hasn't shown much interest in playing at all. I'm really not quite sure what to do about it all. They are drinking enough to not be dehydrated, but they are not nearly at their pre-sick intake. I think I'm going to take them to the doctor tomorrow, although I'm not sure what good it will do. They aren't exactly sick, but they aren't exactly well either. The doctor will think I'm silly, but I think it will make me feel better.

On a good note - I made some homemade applesauce a few days ago and the girls LOVED it. We also tried some yogurt yesterday and today and they like that too. They actually move their tongues around and swallow. Natalie is so cute. She tries to grab the spoon and put it in her mouth. I'm not sure why the light bulb went off in the middle of being sick, but hey, I'm not complaining. We'll take food in any way we can get it.
