Round Two - Stomach Flu

Oh, the joys of parenthood.  Poor Connor spent all day Sunday vomiting.  Fortunately, it was a "daytime" illness and we got a good night's sleep.  He and I got a day off together on Monday so he could rehydrate and get some food back in him.

As per our family's M.O., one child gets sick, then a few days later the other two come down with it.  So today was the day.  I got a call from the school about 1:00 this afternoon to come pick up Phillip.  He has then proceeded to throw up every 30 minutes for the past 3-1/2 to 4 hours.  Poor guy!  He has been sleeping for the past hour, hope his tummy holds for a while now.

Who will be next?  Erin seems to be the hearty one.  Even when she does get sick, she seems to get a milder version of whatever the boys had.

I hate to sound selfish, but when the kids are throwing up I can't help but go into high-anxiety mode worrying that I will get sick.  Crossing my fingers and using a lot of soap and hand sanitizer.  However, ever since getting this Stupid Disease, I have vomited so much and been so miserable I think having the actual stomach flu might be a breeze.  That being said, I hope I don't find out!


  1. oh no! i hope the stomach bug is gone from your house! those are the worst! no matter how many times i threw up from vertigo, i still have no tolerance for nausea or puking. when it hits our house, i always go crazy with the sanitizers too!

  2. So far, so good. Still too soon to tell...

    Ick, ick, ick!!!!!!!!!
