Sickness is Among Us

Although we have avoided it as best as possible, illness has invaded our home.

A couple of our family members had the stomach virus last week. Last night, the poor 2 year old "caught" the bug too.

Since 5 p.m. last night we have each been through 4 pairs of clothes/pajamas. That's 4 pairs for Hoss AND 4 pairs for ME!

Donnie is not a fan of "gross" bodily fluids, remember this? Although, I think I can say I am not a fan, but I can handle it much better. That being the case, I have been the one who has scrubbed carpet twice and chased a 2 year old with a bowl in my hands while he spewed from the mouth.

Poor baby. Right now he is sleeping, something that was sporadic throughout the night.

Let's hope this doesn't spread to Donnie and me; however, I'm not holding my breath...but I am holding a bowl very close.

:( Hope you are all over it now!
I don't know if this would've helped stomach viruses but ever since I found out about Sambucol and tried it, I'm hooked. My daughter had a fever (no other symptoms) and I gave her Sambucol according to the directions and it was gone in 2 days. Sambucol is an elderberry extract that boosts your immune system.
