“A” is no antidote

People whose names began with the letter “A” in the end were not protected.

Last night Adam came home early from work and crashed on the couch. Another victim.

I, on the other hand, was feeling better. No more fever and after not eating and getting on the scale I kind of wished this stomach bug lasted a bit longer, say about 5 pounds longer.

I didn’t realize that it wasn’t over. That having a stomach bug means that it has to come out eventually, and the way it comes out (either up or down) is never pretty.

I sat on the toilet for the better part of the time period from 10pm to 1am last night. Stopping twice to put Ben and Jack back to bed.

Jack got out of bed to go to the bathroom and after I tucked him back in a went back to the toilet, and stepped in something wet. Jack missed the toilet completely. I thought Adam might be kneeling in this very spot soon so I cleaned it up right away. (He didn’t.)

Finally I got in bed for a few hours rest before Sam decided to start crying at 3:30 in the morning and didn’t stop until I finally broke down and got him out.

Tonight is Jack’s school’s fund raiser. Surprisingly Adam feels good enough to go, better than me! I may have to stand near the bathrooms the entire night…
