Shoo Flu, Don't Bother Me

Brendan got it first. Now Ellie is sick too. David and I can't be far behind. The stomach flu has come to our house.

Comfort. Scrub. Bathe. Launder. Cuddle. Repeat.

Despite their ailments, my patients really couldn't be any sweeter. "Is it okay if I just stay in my jammies today?" Brendan asked. "My tummy isn't feeling like its usual self," Ellie declared at about nine o'clock last night -- shortly before getting really, really sick.

We are hoping that this skips little Colin who seems entirely too small to endure something like the stomach flu. Ugggh.

We got it last month (see The 2 month old was spared, according to our pediatrician, because he is breastfed. Of course I got so dehydrated, he did get a few bottles of formula. Her suggestion to keep it from wiping out the entire house was - wait for it - hand washing. Gee, never would have thought of that... (insert eye-roll.) Good luck to you - may your stay in mega-laundry land be short.

Poor things! Hope you, David, and Colin are able to avoid it and that E and B are better soon!

Something is going around school I bet. Nik fell asleep at AFTERSCHOOL and Mike had to wake him up to take him home. He's gotten sick far...Lukas is running around like the maniac he is so I hope he doesn't get whatever his brother has.

Stay well--at least we can open the windows and air out the house a bit!
