It Finally Happened!

After a month of reading everyone else's posts, it finally happened here... so much for my anti-virus software.

It was inevitable.

The winter, a closed up house, and playing with other carrier monkeys has taken its toll on our intrepid hero... the Helper.

It all started Tuesday night (explaining LID's disappearance for the last couple of days), with the innocent line, "Daddy, my tummy doesn't feel good!"

The rest, as "they" say, is history... Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

I'll spare you the gory details (if you require tales of warm, chunky vomit running down your back please visit Karly at Wiping Up Snot)... as you're all well versed in what happens next. Suffice it to say posting will be limited for the rest of the week as I don my nurse's scrubs and take care of the family. Tool Box Thursday will return next week at your regularly scheduled time... please check your local listings.

After having yesterday off to take care of her son, the Mommy headed back to work this morning at 5 a.m.... with only 3 hours sleep in the past 48... no symptoms... yet!

The Helper has started to drink and eat some small portions... we're being extremely cautious regarding his consumption of anything... as I'd rather not see it again... you know what I mean.

My wonderful, 98 year old father-in-law has also been taken down... the Nannie is tending to him. It seems are heroes from the other day acquired this "bug" together... they are indeed best friends.

I now have to get back to my duties... seems the nurse's buzzer is ringing. I will keep you posted on our condition as the situation warrants... where are my rubber gloves and bucket?

As I said to our friend Mike, before his weekend of supposed slumber...

Via Con Dios, Amigos!

Ugh. I don't even want to comment, I'm afraid it'll get me too...

Feel better fast!

Awwwww poor little guy. I hope he gets better quickly and no other long island dad family member succumbs. Keep up the excellent and noble work!

My son (in his 7 years) has only had 2 ear infections and strep 3 times. All happened after starting school. I too battle germs quite well.

Long Island Dad said...

Thanks J!
But, Run... run as fast as you can... get away... get away NOW!

Mike said...

There must be a nicer way to say this, but I am sort of at a loss righ now.

Glad it's you and not me, brother.

Long Island Dad said...

Thanks Angel... he's on the road to recovery now! Good job maintaining your sterile environment!

Mike: I completely understand and appreciate the sentiment... for if the tables were turned...

Karly said...
