Quarantined

Ok, so the title of my post may sound a bit dramatic, bringing to mind the black plague, scarlet fever, leprosy, pox, etc. Really, we only have a stomach/intestinal bug, but I am doing a quarantine of sorts to avoid spreading it. Someone carelessly spread the disease to my little girl, who gave it to brother and I (despite my constant efforts at handwashing, etc). Keep in mind that sometimes the disease is still contagious after the symptoms have abated....like rotavirus, which we may likely have.

I'm doing all right. Mine isn't that bad. My son is greatly improved, but my daughter is still ill. Of course I'm taking her to the doctor if this continues onto tomorrow, or sooner if I feel it is needed. She's thankfully not dehydrated, but I am worried about lack of nourishment and the fact that this is so on-going. I've never seen a stomach bug last this long.

Please keep us in prayer. This winter has been one thing after another and I'm feeling rather defeated, exhausted and weak. I do have enough energy to smack the living you-know-what out of anyone who thinks motherhood is easy. :b

So sorry! Hope it's short lived!

This is the end of our second week with first the stomach bug and now the upper respiratory junk. It is tough, I agree! I just prayed for your family, I do hope all is well soon:-) I keep saying to myself, this too shall pass.

I am so sorry, Kate! We had the Rotovirus two autumns ago, and it was h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e! I hope that everyone feels better soon!
