So, I didn’t get any blogging done yesterday, I was in bed all day. Until my husband told me I should probably get up so that I could sleep the next night. All I could think from my bed was, I want to stay in this bed FOREVER!
But I followed his suggestion and got up and went outside with the family.
What was wrong with me, you might ask.
The stomach flu!
Remember, just Wednesday, I was worried about my parenting skills when I refused to comfort my son when he was terrified of being sick. His illness only lasted a few hours, at least that’s what I thought, I think he was sick in his bed and never told me he threw up in it. Gross? Yeah, finding his mess was disgusting, but I still thought we were all through. I mean even 24 hours after he stopped throwing up none of us were showing signs. We went out to MOMS Club, had our Nutella Party (which I’ll be blogging about shortly) and had a great day. Then around six PM, I started feeling nauseous. But it wasn’t until 2:00 AM, exactly 36 hours after my son stopped throwing up that I started. Then just after I was sick, my daughter came into the room and told me she was sick too, so for the next six hours, my daughter and I took turns. Which isn’t really the point of why I’m writing this.
How long are you supposed to keep yourself and your kids away from others. I mean, I wouldn’t wish the stomach flu on anyone ever. I actually thought that 24 hours was enough time, and hopefully it was and Zoe and I didn’t infect all of our friends, but what if we did? I guess all I can do is say I’m sorry friends.
So normally, is waiting 24 hours enough time, or once you feel better do you think it’s ok no matter how much time has passed? I’m just wondering if there is a courteous 24 hour quarantine, or should it be bumped up to 36?
