Ee gads, that's awful! Here's to hoping you don't puke.

But I must know - are you a family of loud vomiters or do you all do it quietly with a minimum of fuss?

(I ask because SRH constantly makes fun of my loud hurling when I'm sick. He's so sensitive.)

OMG. You guys got that nasty rotovirus up there, where it comes out everywhere? First 2 had it in the past. NOT fun.

Hope the end is in sight soon!

Call me if you need to vent!

(and oh, by the way, hubby would be NO help here. He would be puking right along with them!)

YAK! So glad to hear that Hubby is in town for this bout of illness. I know I would be calling him home if he weren't here and J was puking like that.

I hope it passes quickly for you and that both you and Hubby don't get it. Pick up a can of Lysol spray (linen scent is preferred here) and keep spraying everything down.
