Family togetherness can be a very good thing. It can also be a very stressful thing. It can also be a time to spread germs and illness.
Such was the case on Saturday at Matthew's birthday party. As I pointed out (see point number 3), Rosie got sick at the restaurant before the food even came, so we know it had to just be her or the stomach flu.
It was the stomach flu. Believe me!
The rest of her siblings got sick the next day. The boys threw up for about 6 hours, and the twins for about 24. Sabrina even had to be taken to the hospital and put on an IV because she was so dehydrated.
Josie got sick a while after that. David got sick about 12 hours after Josie. And I got sick about 12 hours after him.
So we all shared. Aren't we nice? We couldn't share balloons, but somehow we managed to pass this little trinket around alright.
So I missed work on Tuesday and slept all day since I spent all of Monday night pretty much on the bathroom floor. I couldn't even hold down water.
I also went home early this afternoon to sleep and am feeling much better.
I just hope that Andrew doesn't get sick! He doesn't have the time to until at least Saturday...even then he has to work, so that might not be too good. I'll just keep hoping he doesn't catch it from me.
