Our house was hit full force with the stomach flu this week. It all began Sunday during Stake Conference. We were sitting in the back row quietly listening to who was being called to the new Stake Presidency, when Macey started coughing. It was just her normal I want attention cough, so we ignored her. Then, out of no where I was covered in yogurt and oatmeal. Needless to say we hurried out of church and went home to do laundry and baths. The rest of the day went on without much of a hitch. We had a few fun diapers and a little more throw up, but other than that Macey seemed fine.
Then, Monday evening came around. It hit me full force around 5:00. Luckily Paul was home at this point so he was available to meet my many requests and take care of Macey while I was occupied with other things. The highlight of the evening was about 7:00 when Macey started throwing up and which then caused me to do the same. Apparently I was getting dehydrated because when I was in the bathroom I fainted, luckily Paul was close by to catch me before I hit the tile. After another fainting episode on my part and a few more throw up clean ups for Paul, he got sick too. Needless to say we were a mess and wished we had family near by to come take care of Macey.
We are now happy to report that we have survived the stomach flu and have a lot of sterilizing and cleaning up to do as Macey made lots of messes while we were both laying on the couch.
