Back soon

As the family fell, one by one, to stomach flu this weekend, I prayed that I wouldn't be hit while I was caring for them.

I see now I should have been more specific.

It hit me last night, just after everyone else had begun to feel normal.

I'll be back when I can be upright for longer than two or three minutes. In the meantime, I'm thanking God for little things like indoor plumbing and a wonderful husband.

So sorry to hear you're ill. I fell to it on my vacation - unpleasant way to relax!
Get well!

Hope you all feel better soon.

When Hurricane Rita hit Texas my family evaced to my parents 5 hours away. We did ok hurricane wise, but then the whole family was stricken with stomch flu at grandmas. We took turns marathon sleeping in the fold out beds and hugging the plastic trash cans.

Oh.. we had had taco soup the night before and it still does not seem appealing. Probably never will again!

feel better soon!

Cindy -- how awful! I know what you mean about the food ... turkey and swiss won't sound good for a very long time ....
