In Which We Are Sick

Monday I was feeling a little queasy, and after breakfast, kinda crampy and miserably. By 2 o'clock, I was calling R. saying I think you should come home because I don't think I can take care of A. after she wakes up from her nap. And by 6ish, I had external symptoms. Blech. I went to bed early with A. (no bicycling yesterday. At all.) and got up around 10 p.m. to try some pedialyte which I asked R. to get me from CVS. I was only slightly dehydrated; it tasted slightly icky. When I'm in bad shape, that stuff tastes great. If you're healthy, it tastes foul beyond belief.

R. and I discussed what might have happened. Bad leftovers from the party? The kids had had some loose stool which we had attributed to too-much-OJ, but maybe they'd picked something up from a kid at the party. Well, today, T. has it (canceled that shot appointment. What is it with my kids getting sick just in time for shots?). Which makes me wonder if A. is next.

Today is toast-and-cereal day. T. and I did go for a bike ride, tho.
