Please excuse me ...

...while I clean up some puke.

If posting on this blog was my job, I'd be fired after this last week. My intention was to work on a nice post on Friday morning. At 11:45 a.m. I got the dreaded call from preschool ... the "Kate just threw-up" phone-call.

If you think that is bad, what is worse is that it hasn't ended. Fifty-four hours and our house is still infiltrated with vomit, emergency bathroom-attacks, temperatures in the 100's, and two (and counting) very sleepless nights.

If we could bottle this flu, it could certainly be used to halt terrorism. Who needs weapons of mass destruction when the enemy cannot make it off the toilet? And even if they could, chances are they'd be naked anyway because they've puked on every article of clothing they own.

I've never witnessed something this gruesome. Please tell me it is almost over - or send in reinforcement.

Poor baby!! I feel so awful for her. Hopefully it's almost over. Hugs to you all!

I hope your little one gets better soon.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog. You always know how to word things wittyingly. Is that even a word? I can relate to many of your stories as I have a 4 yo and a 2 yo.

Yikes!
Gruesome!
Hope everyone gets better soon for you. Take yourself to a nice, cleansing spa treatment to "de-germ" and reward yourself for your extra "nursing" duties this week ;-).

At least you know you're doing a much more important job than blogging! I hope it clears up soon.

Poor Kate... And poor "the rest of the house". I hope for many reasons that she feels better soon.

I'm pretty sure you're allowed to neglect your blog under these circumstances. It's in the rule book somewhere.

I'm sure you already know this, but I'm compelled to mention it just in case -- watch out for deyhdration. Sounds like she's a candidate.
