Kids and the stomach flu
My poor kids have been sick with a stomach flu they somehow acquired. My son Ethan missed the last 3 days of school because he was throwing up and had diarrhea. I was surprised that while watching channel 8 news yesterday, the news anchor had a short bit about what was going around in our city. They said that doctors in the south bay area where seeing kids with this type of sickness. Just after our son started getting better, our daughter got the virus. It was surprising because my kids never get sick at the same time but they did. One week later and they still have this sickness. The doctor at the hospital told us there's no medicine they can take to make them better. Just drink plenty of fluids so that's what we're doing now. Doctor said to give them Gatorade or pedialite. Well, that's all for now. Hoopefully they will be better before the new week starts.
