So far we've been able to avoid the stomach flu (knock on wood) and I'm hoping we continue to avoid it, but I know there are a lot of bugs going around.

Home remedies.... I can't think of any, other than following the BRAT diet when starting to feel better and getting in plenty of fluids. Very interesting about the apple cider vinegar.

No stomach bugs here for a while (knock on wood) -- our last stomach bug incident was a year ago, when our school was hit with, as I call it, "The Plague of *** insert name of school***".

HOWEVER... At this time, Vilija is running a temp of 103.

Poor kid. It's so sad to see them sick. I hope she gets better fast. The stomach bug is going around Tucker's school. I think there's only one kid in his class who hasn't had it. Tucker is now sick; his second time too. Ugh, enough of this!!

Here's to summer!!

Ugh, poor V! I hope she's feeling a lot better now.

Thanks Amy, Kristin...

The weekend for V was quite the pathetic one, and, unfortunately, the illness is still pretty much raging on.

(((Vida))) and (((Vilija))) I'm sorry to hear she's not feeling any better, poor little girl. Hopefully the results with let you know what she has, but there have been some really nasty viruses running around out there lately too.

Got a call yesterday -- the strep culture came back positive.

Uh oh, Vida. Are you going to start on some amoxcillan as well?

I hope the antibiotic helps little Vilija to feel back to normal really soon.

My gal is still sleeping, I'm relieved that she's been able to get extra rest during this illness.
