Heard today that strep throat and the stomach bug is going around big time...

who has a child that has one of these or had it in the past month? I am so hoping it doesn't make it's rounds here because it goes around all 8 of us, then comes back for round 2.

(I was told this at the peditrician office today, during my daughter's 8 yr. old well check-up)

  • My son had the stomach virus. He was throwing up and had diarrhea for three days. His doctors office kept dismissing it so we had to take him in the hospital because he was so bad he didn't want to move. My son is 2

  • We haven't had it ourselves, our neighbors up the street all of them had strep. Strep has a 1-3 day incubation period and is spread thru direct contact so keep the hand sanitizer ready and don't share drinks. Stomach bug not much you can do past washing hands. It is making rounds.

  • We just had a 24 hour stomach bug last week. Ds puked once and had diarrhea for a day; SO felt nauseous/queasy for a day, and he was a bit sluggish/sore. But it knocked me on my a$$, I spent half the day puking and couldn't hold down any food/liquid. None of us had a fever at all.

  • Neither of these have we had. We all had bad colds though. It hit this area very early and I hadn't started my immune boosting supplements yet.

  • My 5yr old brought me home a cold from school. Nasty, nasty cold. She's much better now, I've been really sick for 2 weeks. But now her entire class has it or has had it and she started coughing again last night. Oh joy!!
