  • My husband and daughter got it last summer. They tested positive for it. They were pretty sick, but no more ill than if they had the influenza virus. I'd say they were both down about five days. I thought I was catching something, but my mommy immune system kicked in. Neither my son nor daughter caught it.

  • Yes I caught it along with both my kids. My kids only lasted 5 days at the most. I had it for a week and a half.
    My daughter was 2 and my son was 4 months old.

  • We were never tested for it, but I believe our whole family was down with it last December. It was a little worse than what I feel a "typical" flu is like. We were all down for about 4 days. Only about 2 days of that was hell on earth...I have never experienced so much diarrhea and vomiting in my life. It was actually terrifying; none of us could keep fluids down whatsoever. And, of course, it happened while we were visiting in-laws and were all sharing one small room/bathroom. Pleasant! ;-D
