the "bug" has arrived

well, one of my worst fears has been realized. Hubby has been hit hard with the stomach virus that seems to be making it's way around our small group and our family. While I only seemed to catch the 4-6 hour version about 10 days ago, Hubby managed to catch himself a longer version as we're well into 12 hours of sickness.

I called our doctor, and really the only answer they have is to keep fluids in your system to avoid dehydration...it's just a nasty virus that has to run its course. Ughh...At this point I'm just praying that Elyse & I manage to avoid this awful bug! It's been hard on him and I just hope and pray that it's almost over and he can begin his road to recovery.

Thankfully today was a work day for me so Elyse & I were able to get out of the house and try and find a germ-free zone. You can bet that I have a date with the bleach & disinfectant wipes tonight. I realize Elyse has already been exposed, but I'd love nothing more than to keep her from catching this nasty bug!

I had the same bug last week, and it lasted 2 days :( Definitely not a walk in the park, that's for sure! I hate those sicknesses where the toilet becomes your best friend. They're the worst! Bleck!

Hoping that your hubby feels much better soon, and that you and Elyse stay healthy and bug-free! :)
