Default stomach virus, anyone?

It seems to be everywhere -- we all have it in my house. People at my work have had it. And one preschool in Cary only had 5 out of 12 students in class today.

Uhh, seems to be lasting longer than 24 hours, too.

Anyone else suffering?

We had a slight touch of *something* last weekend. I felt very "icky" for about two days and mildly icky for about two more. My nine-month old seemed a little irritable for an evening. However he's teething, so he's irritable from time to time anyway. DH and DD haven't been affected.

Our family had it here last weekend. Started with my eldest son and I came down 4 hours later. Husband caught it the next day. The only two seemed to get off easy were our two youngest boys.

It lasted 24 hours with us, at least the worst parts, however the Mr. and I are still feeling somewhat queasy even now. It kicked our butts

we got it in our household on Monday starting w/our two y/o son. Wednesday, my 10 mo. old daughter and I caught it. Hers lasted until last night. Finally, my hubby caught it today while we were out at Triangle Town mall. Poor guy got sick everywhere to the point where I had to go into Dillard's and buy new jeans and underwear. Word to the wise: Watch out. It seems to be coming out both ends at the same time now =[

Oh, guess you thought you were in the clear, going out to the mall to celebrate and that's what happens -- geez.

My husband is the only one who hasn't gotten it yet. Hope he will stay healthy.

Nope. Don't know anyone with stomach ailment now. Do know one with bronchitis, and another with sinus/sore throat issues.... But the bowels are A-OK!

Thank you for posting -- I had heard of that but don't use Tylenol, so thought we were good. Didn't realize Motrin is also a McNeil product. Fortunately the bottle I have been using over the last month was not from a lot that was recalled, but I have a bunch of other products to check in the house now, too.
