First bucket sighting at school this morning. My sister had norovirus last week after attending a party where some selfish buggers thought it was acceptable to bring along a vomiting toddler. Most of the other guests got the bug including an elderly man. Feel free to add your rants and worries here.

Hi panic time here.

I've posted here a few times but name changed since last time.

My kids went to play at a friends house last night while friend and I were at a school meeting.

Went in for a coffee after. When leaving she said two of her kids had been off school with vomiting bug.

My kids played with them, ate food there. My youngest is a thumb sucker.

So terrified now.

Hi all, felt the need to share that dsd was sick last night - felt v proud that I managed to cope and help changebed etc, but now she has been sick again and I am PANICKING.

We are away at my parents. We are supposed tobe driving 2 hours home today. What if dd (20m) gets it? What if I get it? And my antiemetics are at home <wails>

Actually, am glad to have found you lot, with your equally well stocked drugs cupboards! Am planning a trip to the local pharmacy once it opens.

Hi big pig, how did your day pan out? Get the drugs? How are the children feeling? What about your trip home?
I've just been diagnosed with pnd and have a virus to boot so am in bed and around if you need hand holding.

Thanks eco. Luckily dsd just puked twice, although she's been pretty subdued all day. We are safely home, minus car-vom (thank the lord) and was starting to chill out until dh declared he feels off colour and has started making frequent toilet trips confused

Bring on the drugs. And earplugs.

Oh sorry to hear that. I had this last week with dh. I slept downstairs away from the action with my earplugs in and I was careful about his hygiene. I was fine. Thinking of you. Keep breathing and get a breath of cold fresh air in your lungs is my advice. That and plenty of Iplayer.

How is everyone? just back from a camping trip in France, and thanks to reading a thread on here about a campsite shut down due to norovirus, I had something other than the cold nights to stress about! All OK, but from now on, camping will be added to cruise ships as an 'unsafe' holiday sad
