GI Strikes Again

This is the best smile Ronan could muster...

Unfortunately Ronan caught his second GI bug in a month - he spent all of last night throwing up. Today was a little better but he was still unable to consistently keep food down. He undoubtably caught it from school - we received an email notice on Friday that this nasty little bug was making it's way through the classes. Nieve has not shown symptoms yet but at least one of her classmates was sent home with GI problems on Friday. It's probably only a matter of time before Nieve goes through this as well.

Being sick is so sad...

The last time Ronan passed the bug to the other three of us (and we all caught it at the same time... exactly two days after Ronan showed symptoms). Mom has been hyper diligent with hygiene - separate towels, washing hands until they are cracked and bleeding, and using bleach judiciously in the bathrooms. We've been plying Ronan with the usuals - whites (rice, plain yogurt, bananas, chicken) and Gatorade/Pediolyte; we hope the diet quiets things down. Ronan, heal quickly - we miss your spunk!

It's just not fair :-( Fingers crossed the rest of you don't succumb.
