Yep, our twins have officially suffered through their first stomach bug. Daddy has been home from work since Monday, and is the only one who didn't get sick. Cross your fingers on that one! First Thing Two was sick every fifteen minutes all night long Monday, then Thing One, myself, and Big Kid all got it Tuesday night. Thing One got sick again this morning for seemingly no reason, had to call Daddy back home from his way to work. I tried to eat a gluten free bagel last night - got a quarter of the way through and got really sick. Oh yeah, and we all have diarrhea (except Daddy, who apparently has an awesome immune system). The worst part is this is exactly what happened to me every three to four months when I had celiac disease and didn't know it, so I know exactly what to do... zofran liquid for the kids, BRAT diet, etc. but it doesn't make it feel any better.
The phrase "shoot me now" keeps drifting through my head...
Thankfully we have some wonderful friends, one phone call yesterday and we had a box of pull ups and two 6 pks of gatorade. Today another friend offered to bring more bananas and gatorade, which is really appreciated. It's so nice to have friends, especially when you need them most!
*Update* well here we are a week later and Thing Two got sick at bedtime last night. We had to go to the doc to get a script for little kiddo immodium for the twins' diarrhea, so I'm guessing we picked up something again. I HATE PEDIATRICIAN OFFICES!!!!
- Gluten Free Mom
- I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!
