Uh-oh... Hope he's feeling better soon.

Oh no! I applaude you trying to see a silver lining for this one though. We're running through a nasty respiratory virus here. No fun? Check!

We don't have tummy problems over here, just snot ALL OVER THE HOUSE. What is it with babies not wanting you to wipe the snot off? I think she prefers to smear it all over her head.

And hey, nice work having gratitude amidst it all!

We've had runny noses and bugs for two weeks but I'd rather that than stomach flu. It took about two weeks for me to be able to walk into our laundry room and not catch a faint whiff of the smell of vomit after my daughter went down with it one night this spring.

I hope your little boy is better soon and that no one else catches it.

Thanks guys. Poor guy hasn't eaten since yesterday and continues to vomit. AND has a raging ear infection. And Aging Mommy...I was just in my laundry room, laughing at the piles and piles of sick laundry.
