1 - It is physically possible for 7 people in one family to get the double ended stomach flu and a last one to remain standing, still in good health, and irritable because he cannot go the the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper OR play baseball in the backyard with Daddy. Yes. Even Daddy was down. (And Mommy.)
2- Blue Gatorade is actually really good when you are dehydrated. Especially if it's cold.
3 - Lemon Propel is still my very favorite, though.
4 -My washing machine has not stopped running in 72 hours. God Bless Frigidaire.
5 - Mackenzie has a knack for words. "This place smells like death and despair." Truer words were never spoken.
6 - It is possible to vomit so violently that you do, indeed, puke blood. I would have never believed it had I not seen it.
7 - When you are sick, and your family is sick, your entire world shrinks down to absolutely nothing. You go from one to another, wiping mouths and dispensing gatorade, and never spare a look to your twtter feed, your facebook wall or your email.
I still think we need new carpet. Especially now.
Share with me - what was the worst that your family was ever sick? Cuz for me, this was the worst. Seven of us laid up in various spots in the house, for three days. Worse than when my daughter was hospitalized for dehydration. Worse than the 5 months of rotating strep. Worse than just about anything I've ever seen.
And Allegra just asked if she's had the Chicken pox vaccine, because two days ago, she shared a straw with a girl who today has the chicken pox.
I couldn't make this stuff up IF I TRIED.
