William and Elizabeth were violently sick on Friday.
On the mend Saturday.
Henry woke up sick on Sunday morning.
William and Elizabeth were feeling better on Sunday before relapsing, Sunday night.
I was sick late Sunday night - early Monday morning.
I was violently sick all day Monday.
Carolyn and Charlie were skipping around the house telling everyone they'd take care of us throughout the day, Monday.
Carolyn started throwing up Monday afternoon, every 10-15 minutes.
Charlie looked like a deer in the headlights.
He knew he was next.
The bug hit Charlie hard at 1:11 AM Tuesday morning.
Today is Tuesday.
Everyone is sick. This has never happened before where every person in the house - specifically - both parents are incapacitated. I can't stand up for more than 15 seconds without feeling like I am going to pass out. Charlie is completely horizontal. Carolyn is completely horizontal. William and Elizabeth are feeling better, but still unable to eat and are perfectly content laying in bed. Henry is sick but doesn't realize that he is sick and runs around the house getting in to things. Like a toilet brush from the bathroom that someone left the door open to ... and a razor from Charlie's drawer that I just found him chewing on.
I don't want to have anyone come over for fear that we are dealing with the plague. I definitely wouldn't want to expose anyone to this highly contagious virus. We have a load of food in the house since I went shopping on Thursday. Laundry can wait. And I am doing a fine job crawling around on my hands and knees.
Rest assured, there is good news.
Our refrigerator was fixed yesterday for *only* $400.00. The repairman said that had it been the compressor, it would have cost $900.00.
So, at least we have ice chips.
