    Ugh... We interrupt this nap with projectile puking

    Molly just climbed on top of me as I was dozing on the couch and SHOT puke a good 2 feet all over me... the couch... my face... the cushions. I had to strip and shower, it soaked through everything (PS - raw has to be the WORST smelling puke). She had maybe 3-4 acute episodes of vomiting and...
