The whole family has been infected by what could've been the greatest thing ever, but turned out to be lame.
First Sophie lost her appetite and started vomiting and having diarrhea. Not good. But, she was drinking enough, to not be dehydrated. And she seemed perfectly happy when she wasn't throwing up.
Then Will got the same thing. Same effects, occasionaly vomiting, diarrhea, and low appetite. But no apparant pain or misery. He too remained his cheerful self.
We checked with the Pediatrician, and he said, probably nothing serious, just a stomach virus. Keep an I out for dry diapers and give them lots of fluids. No problem.
Carly and I waited with baited breath. A disease that causes you to lose your appetite, suffer mild but quick bits of vomiting and diarrhea, and no pain, or suffering. We've discovered the secret to SuperModel bodies! We were busy trying to think of ways we could stay infected while allowing the kids to recover fully. (We want them gaining weight after all).
Then we got hit. Same symptoms, except. It was awful! Headaches, stomach-twisting pains, low energy, generalized body aches. Up through out the night. Damn.. Why does nature hate us? Well we all appear to be recovering, if not fully recovered. So things are okay in the end. You'd think over the course of all the mutations these virii go through once and awhile they would do something positive, and ecnourage their hosts to keep them alive. Stupid evolution.
