You poor thing! Ds (4), dd (3 months) and I all had norovirus 3 weeks ago, in the middle of dh's exams which meant he was away at the time. I vomited all afternoon one day - my lovely neighbours took ds for me for a few hours, as he had it before she and I did and was mostly better by then, and I lay on the sofa with dd next to me in her little bouncy chair, and we watched tv together and fed / vomited our way through the afternoon. It was horrid but thankfully short-lived! My survival methods for being ill are an excess of tv, dummies, and paracetamol. Hope you feel better soon!
Star, hope you and DP will manage to rest a bit. Bare minimum, if a neighbour or family can cook comforting dishes for you, it would be really great. If not use frozen pizza, ready to eat food, stay in bed. Hope LO won't be infected. Good luck
Get DP to fill a flask before he leaves and make you a snack if you are up to eating. Then lay on the sofa/bed and veg out as best you can. The flask will stay hot enough for lemon drinks and coffee. I am guessing you have a flu lurgee so you will need to keep your fluids up if you have a temp. Not sure it LO needs food at 5 months (so long ago) but ask DP to make this before he leaves so that it can be bought out with minimum prep. TV can be a godsend if they are interested in CBBEs. Take care, sod the house work, and don't beat yourself up by bunging the telly on. I had many days like this when my twins were small. The day after a massive epileptic seizure felt like I had been hit by a train. My lovely neighbour would make sure I was ok from time to time but thank God for telly! (and thank God my meds are now controlled)
Oh it's just hell isn't it. No tips just don't feel guilty about doing the bare minimum and as above poster said, spend the day resting as much as you can. Let the bubba play in bed with you. Stay in bed. Hugs.
