Attack of the Flu Bug

After the long weekend I was so excited for Monday. But, alas, around 2 a.m. Monday morning we were awoken by the Genius crying by our bed saying she had thrown up. Yikes! We got her cleaned up and settled on the couch with blankets and a bucket. She used the bucket.....a lot! I tried sitting up with her and could not get comfortable. My husband came out and said he would watch TV with her. So I snuggled with the Hippie. She could NOT get back to sleep. So we laid there and talked. I learned that she knows when she falls asleep because her eyes say, "Boink!" and when they say that, then she is asleep =). Meanwhile the poor Genius is puking her guts out. The Hippie and I finally fell asleep around 5. I woke up at 7 and needed to wake up my husband. He had just fallen asleep too =(. The poor Genius (who does not believe in sleep or rest) got up off the couch 3 times. Each time was to go potty. It was SO sad! She slept about 2 1/2 hours, ran a fever of over 102. At 7 we put her to bed and she did not wake up til 8 this morning! Her normal wake up time is 5:45! But so far today she is playing and not having a fever at all! She asked me what had happened to her. I told her she had a flu bug. She said, "So it flew in my mouth and back out and that's why it's a Flew Bug?" LOL! I explained it was germs and not a real bug. I am glad she is back to normal today! Maybe tomorrow I can get out of the house for awhile! =)

Ugh, aren't stomach viruses the worst? Natalie was throwing up all lat night--this on top of an ear infection! Glad your Genius is feeling better--hope no one else catches it!
