My hands are already getting a little dried out from all the hand washing I've done this morning. I'm going through the motions but feel like it's a lost cause. Part of me thinks we should all just deliberately infect ourselves now in the hopes it will run its course by christmas. Also, Clorox wipes are convenient, and I just fired up the humidifier to knock airborn viruses down to the floor. I still feel like it's a lost cause.

He's stopped puking and is happily sipping ginger ale. All perky and not happy that I'm confining him to his room. Maybe it wasn't a severe stomach virus after all. Or maybe it's that famous 4 hour stomach virus.

*raw, sanitized fingers crossed*

the eye of the storm?

Rooting for you all.

Don't give up, glatt - it IS possible to escape it. And maybe it'll be a fairly mild thing, or even a bit of food poisoning and not nearly as infectious as rotavirus or norovirus.

... or the brown eye of the storm

Hey, it seems like it was not much after all. He's had a couple slices of plain toast and a bunch of ginger ale, and is feeling a little tender but is holding everything down.

Good news!

Griff 12-21-2013 04:32 PM

Good deal.

Looks like Son of Glatt was more contagious than we thought: Minifobette just puked in her sleep. Not to worry though, it mostly just got on her face, her body, her hair, her pillow, all the sheets and blankets, the nightstand, and the carpet. No biggie. :rolleyes:

orthodoc 12-22-2013 01:18 AM

Not at all, until minifob does the same. :yelsick:

Sorry, Clod ... hope the pain is short-lived.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

The boy has a slight headache but is otherwise ok. Just needs some fluids.

Griff 12-22-2013 07:47 AM

Where will the cellar contagion land next?

Griff 12-23-2013 07:36 AM

... right here at home. Lil' Pete has my version.

glatt 12-23-2013 07:53 AM

I'm sorry.

I hope it stops with her.

Facebook is starting to be peppered with similar stories across the country.

And as I type this, I realize I was just rubbing my face without knowing it. It's no wonder these viruses are so successful. Did I wash my hands since I got off the Metro? Can't remember. Don't think so.

orthodoc 12-24-2013 12:17 AM

I'm sorry, griff. I hope Lil' Pete bounces back quickly.

It's difficult to train yourself not to touch your face, but it can be done (at least for defined high-risk times). Probably a good practice when in public areas.
