1 am- DH is away and the 5 of us at home have the vomiting bug. I was ok when DD6 and DD3 seemed to be coming down with something even though I had a bad cold too, but tonight with DS tossing and turning and DD9months and I tandum hurling, Im not doing so great. She cant get back to sleep and just bights me if she trys to feed. Im worried that Im losing precious sleep that should fill my reserve energy stores and help me get better.I hate it because Im usually the strong 1.

Midday - Luckily my grandparents bought supplies, as I was out of pain killers, and I can only handle lemonade and cold tea. Hopefully Im feeling better by the time DH gets home tonight.

How do you all cope?

Somehow, I just do. Don't ask my husband for help though, especially if he's sick too. He's more of a baby than any of the rest of us.

 I love the smell of vicks vap o rub so if I put just a touch of that under my nose, it helps a lot! Pray the washer keeps going and disinfect the first chance you get. Poor thing, I hope you are all feeling better this afternoon.

I'm glad your grandparents brought you some supplies and hopefully a little bit of respite.

I hope you're all feeling better today.

Thank you everyone :) we are a lot better. Luckily it seemed to be a 24 hour bug. We're just left with a cold from not enough sleep
