Oh its a horrible feeling isn't it? Fingers crossed for you and dd2 to survive!

I escaped but DD and Dh were sturck down for nearly a week.
I have good immune system, think it's because I am teacher so defences have built up.

make sure you all become manic hand washers. Have towels both each member of family and put out fresh ones daily. change teatowels daily.

Then wash your hands again!!

I was the only one to escape a nasty stomach bug which sweeped out my entire family last year, despite me being the main vomit washer!
Just make sure you are very strict with your handwashing & carry on with the washing & spraying, and you stand a good chance of escaping the bug!

Well no sooner had I done my last post I went to find poor little teeny dd2 6mths covered in sick. My poor little mite. soo makeshift bed was made on her floor for her and me so I could continue my all night vigil. Every drop of water given came spewing out within minutes of her drinking it . We both slept fitfully between bouts of sick and crying.

Thankfully she stopped around 3am ish and so did dh, but then yours truly succumbed to the bug too. Although weirdly I am yet to be sick Ive had all the other symptoms. Extreme nausea, Aching bones , shaking, headache, gut ache all this and I still had to hold up dd2 to be sick, what a hellllll night all round. Dh let me stay in bed all day yesterday as I couldn't move (I've also pulled 2 all nighters up due to the girls having it). I still feel like death warmed up and hope tomorrow I will be back to normal Somehow !

At least dd2 got over it pretty quick ,but I still think she feels quite delicate. All she did was sleep all day on dh yesterday

May be all my mad spraying and cleaning paid off sort of !!!

Hate sicky bugs, they create so much washing too. I'm good with most things but sick is urrgh.

(I make up a little bed on the floor next to my side of the bed too for any little ones who are ill. They love that)

Hope you eveyone is well again soon.

melsy Tue 27-Feb-07 14:23:15

Thank you all

Thank you tinygang for wishing us well soon. I agree vomiting ach, so much gunge. Still feel ropey , cant eat much. Dh thinks mines lingering as I stopped myself being sick (but I coudnt as dh was sick too and who was going hold up the baby).

Dd2's needs more fluids me thinks, but she seems in better spirits, although her cries more heartfelt IFYWIM.

friends at nursury I saw this morning , all said for them, its not if they all get it , its when .
