Sick

I spent all last night puking and visiting the bathroom with a high fever and chills. And then a few minutes before he was supposed to leave for work this morning, Eric started throwing up. I had to convince him to stay home--he was going to teach anyway!--and he promptly went back to sleep until after noon. We've been spelling each other off watching Zari so the other one can sleep. I can barely move. Fun fun fun.

Zari is chipper as usual. She's been fairly content to let us lie comatose in the room and watch her play.

I took some (generic) Pepto-Bismol this morning after the fourth time throwing up. It was a childhood favorite because it always did one of two things:
  • tasted so gross that you threw up, and then you felt better
  • settled your stomach, and then you felt better
I never thought I would be nostalgic about Pepto-Bismol.

  4. The only thing worse than stomach flu is trying to take care of kids with stomach flu at the same time! Cross your fingers that Zari doesn't get it, and feel better soon!
