Thanks, all. The kid is out of puke. There's a run on strawberries in the greater Pittsburgh area thanks to a hungry kid that's finally being allowed to eat. I think that she's out of the woods. Now we'll see what the incubation period is for the others. I'm expecting Ni to go down next as they bunk together.

I'm so confident of recovery I sent Ol' Red (our name for her private sick bowl) through the dishwasher on the sandblast setting.

So it's ready to use as a salad bowl again?

Glad to hear that she's better.

Good news.

Praying no others come down with it. If they or you do, you have my sympathies. We have influenza at my house, too. It started with me (inevitable since I work in healthcare) a couple weeks ago. My wife has it and my oldest daughter. No fun. It's wicked this time around.

Btw, the incubation period seems to be around 5-7 days.

I spend enough time at the library with students (and around students) that I'm freaking out at every body ache or tummy grumble. So far, so good...

We survived, I think.

Praying for her and all of you. We're sick too, right now, but fortunately not as seriously - yet.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV
