How is everyone today zoo?

liveinazoo Mon 12-Nov-12 18:28:02

i hope so zoned i really,really do

i couldnt resist the urge to text dp and see if hes ok.he feels very unwell,but still not sure if it the lurgy or ibs as hes just laying in bed a the moment feeling progressively more illsad

zonedout Mon 12-Nov-12 18:23:01

You are coping zoo, you really really are. And any day now you will wake up and this will be all over and it will all be ok again.

liveinazoo Mon 12-Nov-12 18:09:28

they are quiet and lethargic<unheard of for dds do it must be badsad>

dp is complaining not feeling well-it may be ibs though as he gets it very badly when under stresssad

im really not coping anymoresad

i just want to wake up and it all ok again

zonedout Mon 12-Nov-12 17:56:36

zoo, I have an almost pathological need to know all the details. How many, how badly eye etc. then I either feel better or far worse accordingly. Think it must be another control thing. How are you and your dd's doing this pm?

liveinazoo Mon 12-Nov-12 16:48:36

zoned big hugs

are you sure you want to know how many are dropping?

will that make things worst.x

zonedout Mon 12-Nov-12 14:42:22

sad wish I hadn't just read that.

still thinking of you zoo and all the other emetophobes struggling. Off to collect ds1 from school and anxious to hear the latest noro toll (and praying nobody came down with it in the classroom today)

BlackCatinChristmasChaos Mon 12-Nov-12 13:09:34

I'm lurking on and off if you want to chat. x

Badvoc Mon 12-Nov-12 13:08:24

Yeah, I saw that.
Just hoping the bug the dc had 3 weeks ago means they will be ok for a while but logically I know they aren't.
My ds1 really struggles during winter anyway (respitory issues) so winters aren't much fun in this house sad
It's odd isn't it?
As bad as noro or rotavirus is (and ds2 ended up in hospital with rotavirus when he was 13 months old) its over usually within 48 hours. Or the worst of it anyway.
It's the awful numbing paralysing fear that is the worst thing. The sleeplessness, the worrying every time you hear someone is's exhausting sad
<holds hands with zoo>

liveinazoo Mon 12-Nov-12 13:01:41

thanks badvoc
seeing vomiting is a topic in teh main board for today hasnt lifted me at allsad

wish they could just make everyone stay at home til they could sort a vaccine to irradicate contagious vomiting!sadsadsadsad

Badvoc Mon 12-Nov-12 12:58:49

Sorry to hear that zoo.

liveinazoo Mon 12-Nov-12 00:55:18

appreciate the support frantic
as you know from the other emet thread both the girls are now being ill

ds is ok,he hasnt had a fever just bin a little flushed a couple of times

the girls have been sorted by mil and are chatting aay to her calm adn relaxed and smily

im soo eternally grateful,esp as she hates me so that she has come.<she hates he belved son to worry and right now im not in a position to worry

frantic51 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:17:43

Still here zoo. How is ds's temperature? How long is it since he ate? If he has cooled down some and it is more than a couple of hours since he ate, the odds are in your favour that it won't come back, but do you know what? If by some awful luck it does, you can cope you proved that last night! You are stronger than you give yourself credit for and so many of us are in awe at just how magnificent you're being. thanks smile

liveinazoo Sun 11-Nov-12 20:04:56

dp is on night shift again tonight and im terrified of either the girls being hit with it or him bringin gup the sllice and a half of toast hes eaten todaysad<<irational loon alert>>

ds has still not moved except to go for a wee x3 today.looks like crap and is complaining still isnt feeling anybettersad

even teh promise of a banana<his favourite thing to eat in the entire world>will not lure him to eat and has been coaxed gently to just eat the toast in a bit to get a bit energy into him as he is very weaksadsad

i intend to ring the gp tomorrow for advice and try and get his revies bought forward regarding his immunity i think

hope everyone else is hanging in there!

Badvoc Sun 11-Nov-12 16:27:22

Glad you came back zoo.
Good news he is keeping after down.

thanks for the slight nudge of a kick up the arsegrin

his immune system is being investigated at present-he is on iron as he haas small red blood cells-and we have to return to the gp in another 4 weeks or so to review what he has had since last visit<in 3 weeks 2 colds,one with wheezing ,the other with horrid night cough,conjunctivitis and now this!>

im trying to rationalise that he not being THAT sick<i.e he can keep sips water down>

i will pop back in this afternoon...

thanks for keep hand holding
appreciate all posters support.x

frantic51 Sun 11-Nov-12 11:27:41
