Ok, yesterday was Thanksgiving. I understand. It's the day to be grateful for things...and today, I'm just angry!
My siblings and I all live in pretty much an hour radius around Denver. My oldest brother lacks lots of common sense though. See, two of his daughters had bouts of vomiting every 10 minutes for about 6-8 hours. This happened on Tuesday night and Wednesday. Thursday though "everyone is feeling fine" so they get in the car to get to my parents house. 15 minutes into the drive, another daughter starts urping. Do they turn around and think "hey, 3 of our 5 kids have been violently sick in the last few days. Perhaps we shouldn't share our germs with others?" No. They drive to my parents and keep the "sick" one in the back.
On their way home, my SIL, who helped prepare food, sat and talked to my mother and I for HOURS, got the bug.
Tonight, it's my husband. It's not nearly every 10 minutes (more like every 45) but he's feeling terrible. And, I'm not doing so well myself. No urping yet, but I feel like I could start in a little bit. Super fun to take care of a baby when you have some stupid bug.
I'm just hoping it doesn't really come and I can just feel nauseated for a while. I can deal with nauseated...just not urping and runs and sick husband and child.

We hosted at our house and two of our little ones came down with fevers the night before. We just texted everyone with the info, told them that Sydney and Bree had fevers but at that moment no other symptoms and let everyone make their own decision as to if they still wanted to come over. Everyone still did. I hope no one else gets sick. I would NEVER have NOT told though! It's not right to expose everyone else's kids without giving thier parents some say in it. If we had been going to someone else's house we would have just stayed home.
Sorry your hubby is sick. Hope he gets better soon!
That is going around. Usually it only lasts for 1 - 3 days. That's actually (I think) what put me in the hospital a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't keep anything down and was throwing up every 10 or so minutes. It really sucks!
