Yeah, we should be conscious of our hands. This entered my classroom maybe 2 1/2 weeks ago. We wash hands rigorously but I messed up somewhere.

Some Alaska Airlines flights won't fly today due to their pilots' flu

Not necessarily. Some are airbourne. Short of living in a germ-free bubble, there isn't much you can do.

I read last year that a humidifier is good because the moisture in the air makes the airborn viruses get soggy and fall to the floor. Dry indoor air is the perfect environment for viruses to just float around where you can breathe them in. And it's the main reason illnesses peak in winter months.

That ... and the little mobile Petri dishes are not outside playing.

...aaaand now Minifob is puking. Took the gold in both distance as well as number of items sullied--it was nothing less than over and past the nightstand for this champ. Tomorrow at 9 am, we head out for seven hours in the car followed by three days with the in-laws. Merry Christmas everyone, you'll never guess what we brought you!

Don't do it to yourselves ... stay home. You have the best of reasons.

Road trips with sick kids suck. There's still a puke stain on our headliner from years ago that you can only see if you know where to look.

Gallon size zip lock bags are useful and double as a rough measuring device.

And I agree with Ortho. You gotta be a little crazy to get into a car with a sick kid to drive AWAY from your home.

My wife confirm what Glatt says...

She drove all the way down the west side of the Canadian Rockies
with 2 of our 3 girls spouting randomly... not fun.

Yeah, stay home. Its ripping through my sisters house and we saw them on the Eve... Update Lil Griff started hurling at 2:30 this morning. Pete is the last standing.

Yeah, staying home wasn't going to happen. But he ended up puking a total of 8 times last night, so by the time we were getting in the car, there was really nothing left for him to get rid of. He dry-heaved a few times on the trip, but strategic towels were enough to handle it. We'll see how tonight goes (he managed to keep a little water down, so we let him have 2-3 bites of food at dinner.)

But the really exciting thing is now I'm feeling very crampy and nauseous. Mr. Clod, at least, says he's still feeling fine.

glatt 12-26-2013 09:34 PM

Sorry. :(

Griff 12-26-2013 09:51 PM

Bummer.

orthodoc 12-26-2013 10:13 PM

Oh nooo ... sorry.
