The Stomach Flu Makes a Visit

Words every mom dreads hearing: "Mommy, I think I'm going to throw up!"

Blythe Newsome: This week, one by one, all my children got the stomach flu. I tried to quarantine the first one, but realized there was no way to quarantine a toddler. If the CDC and WHO can stop the bubonic plague, can they please find a cure for the stomach flu?

I raced around the house wiping everything that wasn't moving, but in spite of the scrubbing, they all got it. There is no way to be prepared for six little people getting sick. Every time I would get one cleaned up, I would hear, "Mommy, I need you."

And then I got it.

I would rather give birth to a 9-pound baby without an epidural than throw up. And of course, by the time I got it, all the kids are healthy and ready to play, eat, jump, and dance.

How can children bounce back so quickly? One minute they are throwing up so much you expect their heads to start spinning, and the next minute they are fine and ready to play. I don't recover so quickly. In fact, it may be a long time before I get over this health crisis.

Now that we are all healthy, it is time for the clean-up. Is there a federal disaster fund for this? I have to rip up the carpet, repaint the walls, and throw out every pillow. I wonder if this falls under our homeowner's insurance as a catastrophic event. Better yet, maybe by next flu season, there will be a cure!

We are brainstorming a study paper for college and I?m currently following several blogs for review.

I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from additional than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so much. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your personal believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
