My last entry told the tale of the vicious stomach virus monster. In that short time, the monster attacked new victims.
Fourth victim: Allyson, a faithful friend and amazing help to our family. She came to my home on Friday night to help me with the sick kids since Matt had a late night with Cross Current, assured that she would not get sick. She lasted just 4 hours before the monster attacked, sending her home in a rush, yak bag in hand.
Fifth victim: Me - the Mom and former caretaker of other victims.
Sixth victim: Matt. After heroically caring for his sick wife and 4 kids, while trying to prepare for the sunday sermon, and then preaching on Sunday, he was finally able to slow down last night. But by 1:00am this morning, the vicious virus monster began its attack on my husband.
So in the middle of the night, when the house is actually dead silent, I snuck downstairs to make him a sick bed on the sofa. Abbie's pink trashcan is now his comrade.
Sole Survivor: Stephen Aleksandr Smith, 10 year old Mac-junkie, who has been pumping germ-x on his hands about 20 times a day since last week.
