  • My son had it~~it lasted about 32 hours~~and knock on wood no one else in the house got it. Just keep washing your hands and try to stay away from him. Good luck!

  • Myself and two younger boys have been sick since Wednesday. It's definitely no fun!! Disinfect your house daily. Keep Lysol wipes in the kitchen and bathroom for sure. Good luck. It's icky!

  • It hit our house. The problem is that it's contageous long before any symptoms show up. You can't really protect yourself now, you've been exposed.

    In our house my daughter caught it first, I followed by about 3 hours and then my husband had it two days later (my baby son had it the same time I did).

    It sucks big time, but just because he's throwing up doesn't mean you will get it.

    Good luck! Hope you all feel better soon!

  • My 2 sons had it, and then I did... also had severe diarrhea. I wanted to die. Lasted just about 24 hours. Had a 72 hour incubation period, so I *think* we're in the clear. (crosses fingers and toes).

    Disinfect everything. light switches, door knobs, any high contact area. and wash your hands religiously!
