Recovering from Thanksgiving

We are still recovering from Thanksgiving and it's not what you think. Yes, we had an exceptionally good time-- the food was great, my relatives were on their best behavior and I polished off a bottle of wine while cooking, but it was the aftermath that did us in.

My daughter came home from a friends house feeling queasy which soon turned into uncontrollable spewing. She was so sick Friday night that I almost took her to the docotrs. If it wasn't for the fact that she is possibly the most whiniest person on the face of the earth (she faints over hangnails) I would have. Then my dh got sick Friday night. The second whiniest person on the face of the earth. Seriously.

Then my son came home Saturday after staying the night at a friends... sick as a dog. Turns out some of my relatives brought their sick baby with them as a little Thanksgiving hostess gift. I spent Saturday cleaning up after three sick people. Sharing the bathroom was interesting.

I came down with a mild case on Sunday night. Spent Sunday and part of Monday sick. Feel much better, though my stomach is still sensitive. Daughter is back to throwing up after feeling fine on Monday and Tuesday and son is relapsing too. Sigh.

The bad thing is that none of us ever want to see another Thanksgiving turkey dinner again. Just thinking about it makes me shudder.

So we may have ham next year. LOL

Oh, you poor thing! I can fully understand the food aversion issue after all that. I hope your family and you start feeling a lot better very soon!!

Wow, lots of people I know were sick over Thanksgiving! How crummy. Glad you're all on the mend.

Oh, I hope you all feel better soon.

I got violently ill on Thanksgiving night too, and have yet to figure out why. No one else here did, and I was fine after about two hours.

This happened to our entire family a few years ago at Christmas. A sick baby (not mine) was the culprit, too. (It wasn't the baby's fault, but the parents' that were too inconsiderate to stay home or warn everyone.) Huge gathering, and EVERYONE ended up sick. Including the 100 year old great grandma.

So sorry for your fam. :(

OH, NO! You poor thing! We were sick too but just cold sick. Sending you some cyber Lysol! :)

Good grief! I'm so sorry! I hope whatever bug it is leaves you alone soon.

Argh, Teri, that is so rotten. We had a houseful of sickness a couple weeks back and it's no fun at all. Hope everyone is feeling better soon.
