third and hopefully final victim

Well, I was the third victim of the stomach bug.  I went down just a few hours after Hayden did on Friday night.  It was the worst stomach bug on the planet.  I thought I was going to die.  I didn't get out of my bed until about 6:15 on Saturday night. 

I never thought ice chips could taste so good!

 Thankfully Gary only worked for a few hours on Saturday and Layla and Hayden were excellent kiddos.  I couldn't have made it without Gary.  Poor guy, between me and Hayden he didn't get any sleep.  He had to take care of Hayden because I was so sick.   Layla took care of me on Saturday.  She brought me crackers, Tylenol, and Popsicles.  She is a great nurse.

The kids have a school holiday tomorrow.  Hopefully we will all be well and able to do something fun.  We have been cooped up in the house since last Wednesday.  First with the sniffles, and then with the stomach bug.  We are ready for a fun week of normalcy!

You poor thing! Glad you're on the mend, but I hope you feel better soon! I empathize...I had the flu so badly in Dec. and couldn't stop vomiting. The Lawyer mercifully dragged me to Urgent Care and got some Phenergan (anti-vomiting med). It had to be inserted by suppository (because, of course, I would throw it up otherwise...), but let me tell you, I've never been so happy to use a suppository IN MY LIFE!
