Ick Sick

We had a run in with a stomach virus this past weekend.  Rz got it first - high fever, shaking and vomiting. Several hours later, Ry was waking us up because he'd thrown up all over his bed.  

Baths, rehydration freezies, and diluted tea seemed to be what Rz needed.  Ry seemed to feel much better after I rubbed his feet and belly with Japanese peppermint oil. J is now queasy, but that could be from cleaning up after our sick boys... I provided cuddles and sips of tea, J handled laundry and mopping duty.

I've been downing whole cloves of pickled garlic, eating natural yogurt, drinking diluted Apple Cider Vinegar and dosing with essential oils.  So far I'm fighting it off.  Go probiotics!
