I mentioned that Connor has been sick. Apparently it wasn't meant to just be him. Friday night Travis came home from work and pretty much passed out on the floor~sick as could be with the stomach flu. It was bad. Then, about 3 hours later, it hit me. Not good to have the mom and the dad sick in a family. Couple of hours after that Joseph started crying-threw up in bed. So, before 5am, 4/5 of the Nelson's were down. Spencer was our hold out. I had him sit quietly on the love seat with a bucket and some towels. I told him to watch tv and read stories because we were all sick. About noon he was using his bucket~the circle was complete! Travis looked around our living room and said, "This place looks like a civil war hospital." Joseph had a bed on the floor, Connor had some cushions and blankets, Spencer and I were each on a couch. Blankets, buckets, Gatorade, and Ritz crackers were everywhere. I guess it did look a bit hospitalish. Too bad we were all too sick to get the camera and take a picture. That would have taken too much energy and we had to conserve our energy for crawling to the bathroom. (o: Travis's parents were kind enough to drive up and bring supplies ie. Gatorade, Tums, 7-Up, Ritz Crackers. They brought the stuff, dropped it and ran. Can't say I blame them. (o:
Needless to say that today we are all feeling much better than before. Travis was able to go to work today (yesterday he didn't go in). I think he feels the best of the bunch, followed closely behind by Connor who has had the longest time to recover. The rest of us are mostly tired and a bit queasy. Travis was helping me yesterday try to get a substitute for my calling in church. I am the Ward Sacrament Chorister. He had a harder time than we thought. The first guy he called was in bed with the same thing. The Sister that we did get said she had this just 3 weeks ago and my "boss", the ward music coordinator, said her family had it just a couple of weeks ago. It hits hard, but they say it doesn't stick around. So, I'm wondering, did we get this from going to church??? Hmm, those Mormons! (o:
I think I am going to go question Spencer on what he would like to have for his birthday. I already know that he is going to request stoplight everything, but I'm hoping that if I quiz long enough, I might get a different and easier to obtain (meaning purchase) answer.
Everyone have a super Sunday!
