They puke all the fucking time.
Gracie was so sick, I had to have my neighbor pick up some meds for her to stop hurling, I couldn't get her to the corner Walgreen's without hurling.
It was either that or we were trudging down to the Emergency Department to get an IV. For seven hours, we'd been sitting next to each other with a bucket so she could spew. Seven long, horrible, frigging hours. In that time frame she nailed me in the face and at that point I knew it was over. My only thought was, "Innoculation complete."
I Cloroxed my face, mouth, neck and even my tongue for good measure.
And she got better. A day went by and no one got sick. I didn't get sick.
I was happy, I thought I had beaten it. And I got cocky. I was all, "Suck on that norovirus! You were on my face and I beat you. I win! I'm a God."
Only I wasn't.
I got sick.
One minute I was fine and the next, well, I wasn't.
And for the love of all things good and holy, I wished I was dead. I have no earthly clue what that child brought into this house but I was sick. Like, I was sicker than sick. I threw out my back puking. I stopped counting the number of times I barfed at sixty one. My jaw popped out of socket and at no point did I think, "You know what, one day this will be funny and we are going to sit back and laugh and laugh and laugh."
|Bait and switch. Look at the pretty ocean while I talk about puke.|
And I'll just fast forward through all the gruesome details because they were flat out disgusting. Now I'm up and amongst the living wondering where in the hell two good days went and what in the hell happened to my house. It was like our toy closet blew up and all the kids were sitting in the middle of it having the times of their lives. My husband and I clearly have two different views on how to keep the house.
And then I after another day I though I was in the clear. No one was sick. I got all cocky. I thought, "I'm bad ass, I cleaned that norovirus out of this house. I'm a cleaning God."
But I was wrong, I was so very wrong.
My husband got sick.
Then Alex got sick.
And now I must go and admit my defeat.
As an update, we now have the flu, or a cold that is suspiciously like the flu, in our house. Alex is home from school telling me all about Minecraft. Awesome.
I'm trying to get back to everyone's blog but I'm having a really hard time. Some of the word verification combinations are killing me! I know spam is an issue but I can't seem to get past some of them and for that I'm sorry.
