  • alot of things are going around. Go to doctor or even just call the doctor. Keep the fluids going like gaterade, sleep, medicine, and try to stay in if possible.

  • Yes as moms we don't have time to be sick to have to suck it up and keep on going. What I do when I am sick is drink lots of fluids, take tylenol or excedrin (for fever), tea with lemon and honey (for sore throat or cough), I also rub Vicks on and I try to get rest. When my kids and I are sick at the same time what I do is push fluids, jello, chicken soup, popsicles, and we 'camp out' in the livingroom. I get the 'grown up' futon, 1 boy gets the kids futon and if others are sick they get to put sleeping bags on the floor and then we watch family-friendly dvd's and 'rest'.
