Foul Illness

We had a foul flu in the house the past few days. Quantum had it on Tuesday and he threw up a few times and then was done with it in less than 8 hours, the lucky child.

Paul was the next one to get it. I worked for him on Thursday because he was feeling so poorly. He was so sick he even failed to watch the hockey games that were on TV while he was home. Now that's sick.

I got home at 5:30 in the evening just in time to miss Paul and PJ getting sick together, one in the toilet and the other in the bathtub. Not pretty. By 6:00 I was getting sick myself and Paul was helping to get everyone else cleaned up. Poor Paul, although he was not feeling well himself, he was the best off so he got stuck helping the kids as I could not get away from the toilet long enough to be of assistance.

Sebastian started the game about 9:00 that night and Mary joined in the family fun around 1:00 in the morning. We ran completely out of clean sheets somewhere around 2:00 am and I spent the entire night on the bathroom floor. A good time was had by all.

Friday came to find Paul and PJ feeling better, but sleepy. Paul went to work and stayed home with the sick family. I started to feel better around 5:00 last night and was even able to get a couple of crackers to stay in me. Mary fell asleep about 6:00 last night and was still sleeping when I left for work this morning at 9:00.

Everyone seems to be feeling better today. I am very sore from laying down so much. My back is killing me. I think a day of work should do the trick to get me feeling better. I just need to move around and get the blood flowing. My stomach does not feel great yet but I am sure we will all be top notch after one more good nights sleep.

Well, I am off to go to work now. I wish this post was not quite so gross for you! I promise to do better tomorrow or maybe even later today. I have to go to work now.

I'm glad that everyon is feeling better. Families share everything, even the flu.

You guys lucked out that it passed so quickly. The one going around here sticks for at least a week and then you just feel lousy for two weeks. Glad you passed through the storm so quickly.

Did you let Paulie do the cooking again Kelly Anne?
