Down, but Still Fighting

The norovirus sucks. Really. My oldest, K, had it about 3 weeks ago. She had never been so sick. Luckily it only lasted about 36 hours. Then, last week, B got it. Again, lasted about 36 hours and we were all miserable. Then last night at 3am, K got it AGAIN! I cannot believe it. We washed all her bedding and stuff, but I realized this morning we forgot to throw out her toothbrush. Maybe that is it? ARGHHH. I am so sad for her. This thing really is awful - LOTS of vomiting, LOTS of cramping. I feel so bad. Tomorrow - full cleaning of everything - lots of Clorox, and throwing out anything questionable. Somehow neither the adults nor Big Man have gotten it - did I say that out loud?

It went through our school really bad last year...ALL TOYS need to be bleached too...it usually hits every 7 days or so for the next person. Plus even after the symptoms stop they are still contagious-YUK! Just keep disinfecting...spray lots of LYSOL over things too...Hope everyone is better soon.

That sucks! I am so sorry that K got it again. Clorox wipes are the best. Hope everyone gets better soon.

I hope you are in the all clear soon. Sounds prety awful - my fingers crossed you don't get it.

I am so sorry! I know it is hard...but pretty much anything touchable needs to be wiped down. Glad to hear that not everyone got it though...at least, let's hope it stays that way.

oh man, that stinks. You shouldn't feel bad for not getting it. Someone should be healthy enough to take care of the little ones!

That SUCKS!! My sister went through this last year with my nephew after another kid at daycare had it.

Lysol NutraAir is great!
