Wedding of very dear friends tomorrow 3pm, we've been looking forward to it for months.

I was sick at 7am today, had to call DH home from work to look after DS (10 months) because I felt so lousy: nauseous, achey. Haven't thrown up since TMI alert did a poo and all normal, no dire rear (sp?).

Slept all day, feel basically fine now. If all ok tonight and tomorrow morning WIBU to go? DH very worried I might infect b and g or elderly rellies. If I don't go then DH has to stay home to look after DS who is bf and don't think would settle in hotel without me.

Ould hate to infect people, so if consensus is stay home I illw

If you're not sick again definitely go! I work in a school and we ask for 24 clear hours.


MushroomSoup · 10/04/2013 17:47

And, because I work in a school, I will teach you the correct spelling of diarrhoea. You never know when it might come in handy!


TWinklyLittleStar · 10/04/2013 17:48

Completely off topic but I actually love 'dire rear'. Sums it up perfectly!


squoosh · 10/04/2013 17:49

'Dire Rear' is ace!


kinkyfuckery · 10/04/2013 17:50

If you're fine from now, I'd go!

Dire rear!!!


KateBeckett · 10/04/2013 17:50

Dash in a rush, rush harder or else accident - diarrhoea!

Also, as long as you don't pike again, and feel better in the morning, go an enjoy your friends wedding!


Doodledumdums · 10/04/2013 17:51

As long as you aren't sick again then i'd say go. Let's face it, there are usually around 100 people at a wedding, the likelihood that one of them isn't contagious with something is very high anyway!

Have a good time Smile


Maggie111 · 10/04/2013 17:51

I'd go.


AliceWChild · 10/04/2013 17:51

I think I'd go. What makes you think it could be anything contagious rather than something you ate?


KateBeckett · 10/04/2013 17:51



spottyock · 10/04/2013 17:51

Dire rear is perfect!
I'm on the fence with this one. Our school is 48 hours but it would be such a shame if it wasn't a bug and you couldn't make it.
Just one bout of sickness and no diarrhoea would suggest to me that you're probably ok...


QueenCadbury · 10/04/2013 17:52

48hours is needed rather than 24 but I would ask the bride and groom if they want you there. They may be happy to risk it or may prefer you to stay away. You probably won't pass anything on but if you did go and other people became unwell afterwards you'd feel awful. Also if you're not well enough to stay at home alone with ds then surely you're not well enough to go?


DireRear · 10/04/2013 17:52

...Did somebody call?

I found this mnemonic on MN and will never forget it...

Doesn't It Always Run Really Horribly Over Each Ankle

My friend once had a note for a pupil which went along the lines of 'X was off yesterday with diarhea dierear dire rear runny poos.' Can't do the crossing out thing.


itshothere · 10/04/2013 17:54

If you don't puke again and feel ok then go....just don't snog anyone, just in case... Hope you feel better.


DeepRedBetty · 10/04/2013 17:55

Go unless you're sick again or have the runs


badguider · 10/04/2013 17:55

I wouldn't class a single vomit in an adult with no further vomit or gut problems as 'a d&v bug' so I wouldn't quarantine even myself for 24hrs, if I felt well again.

I'd go to the wedding.


DublinMammy · 10/04/2013 17:58

I'd go. Just make sure you wash your hands really, really well and don't lick anyone.


MrsOgg · 10/04/2013 17:59

Thanks, all!

Don't get this bit at all! Why can't you and DS stay at home and DH go to the wedding?


Theicingontop · 10/04/2013 18:00

Dire Rear Grin

I'd go.


MrsKoala · 10/04/2013 18:01

Ha! Dublin i was just about to say i would go and try not to lick anyone (but after a few ribenas all bets are off!).


GlaikitFizzog · 10/04/2013 18:02

Arf at "don't lick anyone" what kind of weddings do you go to DublinMammy!


DireRear · 10/04/2013 18:13

Should I start a ranty bug-zilla thread about how no one wants me at their wedding?
