Real Snow but Few Flakes

November 26th, 2013 at 02:50 am

This was one of those days you had to push through. About 11 last night as I was finishing up some work, DD started vomiting. Twice we got her cleaned up and re- situated, then she'd start up again. Eventually around 2 she settled down and slept. But of course we were up hours after that, cleaning up, washing sheets, figuring out who could stay home. At 7 she woke up and insisted on going to school. She was giving a presentation on Jonas Salk and was very excited about it. Yet by lunch she was queasy and came home again.

So, little work was done. DH stayed home, dozed while she was at school, then worked online for a bit.
I zombied through my classes, stopped at CVS, then took over the afternoon shift. She seems better but has eaten only a bit. And nothing like a vomiting kid to make you feel queasy yourself. I'm opting for an early evening.

We had a couple inches of snow here this morning which screwed up everyone's commute, so to optimize a speedy exit, I again spent $7 in the ramp. No more!

    What a ghastly night! Hoping DD is a quick recoverer, better and no longer ill. Lots of isopropyl alcohol diluted 50% with water on a sponge to wipe light switches, door knobs and such helps to keep other from getting ill. Get as much rest as possible and stay well to enjoy the holiday.

    I'm sorry that all of you had such a rough night. I hope you can get some deep sleep tonight. Our state has a rule that you can't go to school after vomiting or diarrhea has stopped for 24 hours.

    Those nights are always rough. You always feel so bad for them, yet it sucks for mom and dad to be up washing sheets!

    Thanks for all your good wishes. I let her sleep a bit this morning, and she was off to school with no problems.
