This girl's smile is highly contagious. Unfortunately, so is her stomach bug.
Kate had the bug last week. Not too too badly, overall--she threw up a couple times Tuesday night and Wednesday night--enough to make me worry, but that doesn't take much :0)
Thursday morning, the issues had retreated to her "other end," if you catch my drift, but Matt had the bug in full force--so bad, he insisted I leave work midday to come home and care for Kate since it was Daddy-Daughter Day but he was totally indisposed.
Friday, Matt was still really sick, but Kate seemed fine, so she went to day care and that evening, she and I left as planned for a weekend in Louisville visiting my parents and grandparents.
After two days of Pedialyte, Kate still had a little bit of other-end-issues Saturday morning, but seemed pretty good overall. Her appetite was returning, and we had a fun day playing and visiting my grandparents, both in their nineties.
By Sunday night, however, as Kate and I returned home--both my parents and grandparents had caught the bug. I feel really bad, and pray they all get better soon, especially my grandparents. Obviously, any illness at that age is dangerous.
Somehow, I am the only one who hasn't succumbed to The Great Stomach Plague of 2010, and I credit the shot of apple cider vinegar our unit assistant recommended I drink to boost my immunity. It may be an old-school remedy, but as the only one who's stayed above the fray... I'm a believer.
