Default Bad stomach bug going around.

My daughter is just starting to bounce back after 3 days, finally kept a piece of toast down this morning. Me and the wife just got hit starting last night. We've got the first snow of the year approaching a foot outside, 8" new today on the pickup bed.

And we're all stuck inside. I'll spare you the details but very lucky to have 3 toilets and 3 buckets, as all 6 devices were used at the same time last night...

I guess wife's flu shot didn't protect her after all

Yep, 3 out of 4 of us got it. Not sure how my wife avoided it but lucky her.

Guys: Wishing you a quick turnaround. That stuff is the worst. Lots of cranberry juice and some chicken soup should help.

The flu shot is for the respiratory flu. Sounds like you guys had something else completely. She may still be able to say "told you so".

Glad you are all on the mend. Sounds like no fun at all.

Many times what folks call stomach flu is actually food poisoning or a bacterial outbreak.

I had ecoli a couple of years ago back when the pistachio crop from California was tainted. Yup, I ate a bag of the bad nuts. Everyone else in the house got it also, I was just the first.

Out of both ends for three days. Never been this sick before in all my 65 years.

Track down where you folks have been, what you have eaten, was any of it unwashed veggies like lettuce? Salad veggies are a big ecoli carrier. So is hamburger.

A local eatery had a food poisoning incident caused by a cream sauce that was left on a warming tray for hours.

Whatever it is, it just stinks. Hot n cold, aches, stomach sore from dry heaves. Kept some ice cubes down so tried a little water and things are rumbling again.

It'd be a lot nicer if the wife wasn't sick so she could take care of me, I admit it, I'm a baby with colds.....

OH man.. my wife just had something similar. She literally didn't get up off the floor for 4 days straight. After seeing her go through it, I am holding my breath that I don't catch it, been sanitizing the heck out of everything in the house and washing my hands about every 30 seconds.

Dang! If it's Norwalk, that is wicked stuff. Caught it at Salishan, along with many friends, a few years ago. Very bad.....

Been there my friend. It's had me down for the count for a week now; the first few days were terrible !!!
Finally on the downhill slide, but the congestion is hanging in my head.
No flu shot is going to help this one. Besides they are over-rated with the millions of strains out there. My wife is a nurse, and although required to have one every year, she doesn't believe in the hype either; it's all just to generate revenue for the pharm companies pushing it, and have very little merit as a preventative measure.
I tried the new Mucinex, and although it tastes awful; it definitely moves the crud out the pipe.
Still not 100% so holding off for my next trip to the river !
Snowing hard with 8 inches on the ground; I think I'll stay right here !
Wish you well.

Dang, that is just horrible. Sucks when it envolves the whole family around a event such as Christmas (been there, done that). I thought it was always intersting when everybody in the family gets it and then there is one that doesn't get sick? Well, hope the best and a quick turnaround.

I guess a Plus is my daughter isn't missing any school since they've had snow days. We probably weren't going anywhere today anyways, snow got most of the 35" tires covered.

7 up instead of water. Not coke or anything else. Thats what the Doc ordered in the 60's

Ice cubes if nothing works. If you begin to bleed, call the doctor.

I was sick over Christmas also. In bed for three days, 103 deg. temp, headache, and cramps. Had to get up and stagger into the bathroom about every hour. That is some nasty stomach flu, still feeling some gastro side effects. Hope you feel better soon. 7up, jello seemed to help.

Boy, I prayed to that god for a week.
Hi fever, chills and ached like I'd be beaten like a rented mule.

Food, Forget it.

Be well soon.

Something that helps settle the stomach is Papaya juice. It has a natural enzyme that soothes the stomach lining. In fact you can get in pill form from any health food store or better yet is juice or fresh Papaya. It works but may not be effective on a virus until perhaps the tale end of the bug. It does work wonders when you have too much grease food or too much to drink. Its worked for me and family members for over 40 years and the juice served ice cold is a good drink. My wife says its too sweet so she cuts it with lemon juice.

Get well the fish will soon be running.
