Flu Season is upon us.

Middleman is home from school today.

He came home from school yesterday and promptly fell asleep on the couch for an hour...he has had a few late nights, but nothing that I would say was late enough to cause him to take a nap.

When he woke up, he said his stomach was hurting and he spent some time on the toilet. Poor dude.

He ate three bites of his supper and went upstairs to change into his pajamas, then spent the rest of the evening on the couch, looking really sick.

At 10:00, he ran to his washroom, saying he was going to vomit. Ugh...my favourite thing to do is sit with a vomitting child. Ugh.

He threw up ALOT into the toilet while I held a cold cloth on his head. He then crawled into bed and said he was freezing. Enter the fever.

I tucked him in all nice and warm and brought him a bottle of water and a bucket. I kissed him and told him if he needed me, to come and get me. He looked so awful.

Middleman, being the awesome patient that he is, didn't wake me up at all in the night...he didn't throw up again and didn't need me, so I am hoping it was a quickly killed stomach bug. He looks much better this morning and just had some toast for breakfast. Time will tell.

And so, Flu Season 2010 begins....sigh. Pin It

:( So sorry it has hit your household so soon. There have been so many bugs going around here, from stomach bugs to something they're calling a 'ten day flu'. None of it is any fun. Hope it exits your home quickly!

Sam has been feeling sick as well, and came home from school at 1030 this morning. Julie was up half the night coughing.

Hope no one else catches it at your place!
