Monday morning, the stomach flu hit. At 5:30 am, Jackson started vomiting. Oh, the joys.
Wednesday morning, Olivia and I started throwing up too.
It has been a week complete with the stomach flu works — including, of course, projectile vomiting, (what would a round of stomach flu be without projectile vomit?) constant diaper changes and a diaper rash to end all diaper rashes. All I can think of is at least I don’t have more kids to get sick.
SO, my question to you super moms out there with half a dozen kids, how do you survive sickness in a big family?
I can imagine it is challenging enough when everything runs according to schedule, but when vomiting and diarrhea enter the game, HOW do you survive so many kids?
(Can you imagine stomach flu at The Duggars??? WOW, that would be messy!)
P.S. Olivia has a wicked case of diarrhea and diaper rash. I am trying all my tricks — Calendula cream, zinc cream, baking soda baths, and I even resorted to hydro cortisone today because her skin is now raw and about to bleed. I am about to try to get some probiotics in her to help ease the diarrhea, hopefully she will keep it down this time! But if any of you have any other tips, I would love to hear them!
