Typhoon Stomach Bug Update

This stomach bug hasn't missed a beat! Five of the seven of us has had vomiting, diarrhea, headache and body aches. One of us had vomiting and body aches and the last of us body aches and upset stomach.

Five of us have been located in our Family Room Infirmary. One stayed in his room. The newest member to the petri dish cast - Daddy. Poor guy came home and headed straight for the upstairs grabbing one of the all ready made up throw-up bucket.

Meals (if you want to call them that) have consisted of chicken noodle soup, saltines, toast (sugar and plain), Cheerios, Gatorade, Sprite, water and tonight - baked  potato for those who wanted one.
Most of the time, no one wants much of anything.

No one has been up and about for too long. Little bouts of "accomplishments" and that is about it.

HGTV and Nickelodeon have pretty much been the extent of our viewing entertainment ~ we are so exciting, aren't we?

A suggestion for those who have not been graced with this stomach bug . . . 

  • Stay at home
  • Stay at home
  • Stay at home
  • Do not treat your children to breakfast or any other meal in a restaurant around other people!
  • Do not let anyone in your home - they could have the stomach bug and not know it.
  • If you feel great but all of a sudden feel a rumble, do not assume it is simply gas . . .  just sayin'!
  • Have chicken noodle soup, saltine crackers, Gatorade and Sprite on hand.
  • Have plenty of toilet paper on hand too.
If you do contract this nasty virus, be prepared to rest, drink plenty of fluids and do nothing.

Advice? Keep the germs at home ~ don't go out and about and share with other families! 

and ONE more thing, I don't want to be rude, so . . . 

Thank you so much to the individual(s) who shared with us at Bob Evans. (No, I am not making assumptions, this was the only place we were all together outside of our home.) The experience has been *ahem* enlightening to say the least.

Stay well my friends.
