Bug

We were up all night with William. He's the newest victim of the bug that's going around here. Theresa had it first and it lasted two days: severe headache, low grade temp, and vomiting. Then I had it yesterday, though it started creeping up on me Tuesday. Bodyaches, temp, headache and no vomiting, because I willed not to. Now poor little William has it. There are few things more pitiful than a three-year old with a stomach bug. And few things worse to have to clean up after. On top of William's troubles, though, I got up this morning and our little dog, Brigid, had thrown up on the floor. I guess she must have caught the bug, too. Good grief! I don't have the energy to deal with it, I gotta tell ya. And there's still the question looming over us: Who's next?

Strange to have a bug in the summer. I don't remember the last time this happened. Is anyone else suffering this, too?

Oh Lisa I feel for you -- is there anything worse than the throw-ups?...I don't know.

And poor William -- there couldn't be anything more pathetic than a three year old hoarking. Poor little dee-dee! Poor Mommy for all the laundry you'll be doing!

Hang in there -- and although we don't have your variety of the "bug" our little John has a bad cold -- go figure. I too, wondered if it would make it's way around the family.

Sending extra big ((((HUGS)))) today!

Kelly and Michael had a bad and lingering summer cold, but I escaped (lots of vitamins always, but they are not so good about taking them).

Mommies always seem to suffer the most because it's both emotional and physical, so will put you and yours on my prayer list too!

blessings and hugs,

colds and stomach bugs should not be allowed in the summertime...it's just too cruel.

the first week that I went to work and hubby became stay at home dad all 3 kids had vomiting and diarrhea for a week! Talk about a trial by fire!!

I cannot imagine what that would have looked like with THREE TIMES as many kids!!


I'll pray for you.
