All 3 of my kids are sick and so am I.
My son has brochitis and is on 3 different medicines.
My dd has a cold that is turning into bronchitis. And has 2 medicines.
My baby dd has a stomach virus and has to only eat pedialite for 24 hours then pedialite/formula for 24 hours then after that straight formula.
I have a cold and feel like crap. I just want to sleep.
I dont have anyone that can help. My SO is gone from 6am to 9pm. I just dont know how this is going to work.
And before someone gets a bug up their butt and says "then why are you on cafemom" The internet is the only way I can talk to my mom and I am talking to her so I am trying to waste time while I wait for her reply.

Keep a deck mop and disinfectant handy, you may need it. If you have carpet, spread some newspaper or old towels close by. Keep a trash can or two close by, they should have lids.
Have someone bring you freeze pops, wipes, jello, ginger and tea or broth whatever you may need. If no one is available or it can't wait, the local pharmacy and grocer can put care packages together for delivery. Card or cash, it beats trying to drive with sick kids.
Ginger works wonders for an upset stomach with no side effects. Jello and/or broth will keep you all alive and hydrated. If you're a regular coffee drinker, beware of caffeine withdrawals if you can't stomach it while sick. You'll have flu-like symptoms on top of flu symptoms.
Set a timer on your computer or cel phone to remind you when everyone's meds are due!
