So, every single member of my family is ill.

The girl has a cough that would make most 3 pack a day smokers envious.

My son has an ear infection and a faucet for a nose.

I am still hacking and enjoying my Puffs with Vicks.

My husband spent most of Friday and Saturday vomiting and on the toilet.

Oh, have you heard about vomiting? Well, apparently it is a new illness that only MY husband has experienced. It hurts. It causes aches and pains unlike any other on earth. NO ONE else has ever had a sickness of the magnitude of this one. Nosirreebob.

This is good news for all of you because MY husband has endured the worst case of vomiting and diarrhea on record. Thus, none of us- especially ME- will ever have an illness to compare to this one. It's true.

His puking set new records. The belly ache which accompanied it was the worst ever felt by a human. His experience was simply the worst ever.

Just ask HIM.

The end.

Why do men complain more than anyone else about being sick?

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Hee hee. Not at you at Hubby. Men are the WORST patients. Is it wrong to wish he gets a kidney stone? It's said it's the closest thing men get to experience the joys of child birth. Babies! Men are just babies.

Feel better. The whole fam.


Men can seriously be sicker than anyone else, in this life and the life before....funny, isn't it? When we are sick, we just have to buck up and keep on keeping on...hope he gets better soon....for your sake.

Ugh yuck. Man what is it about this winter, we cannot stay healthy too. I have two girls out of school right now and my son is getting a cold. I hope it passes for you all quickly and we get warm weather soon!

It is so great that you can retain your sense of humor, even when you feel lousy!

Your description of your husbands illness was a riot! I'm sorry all of you are sick...but you made it VERY funny!

Get well soon!

Melissa said...

Your husband is RIGHT about that particular stomach flu - We had it here! One daughter couldn't eat for three days, had a splitting headache and terrible backache those days AND fever, with vomiting. I couldn't believe it. And other members of the family had the respiratory malaise going on.
Hope you're all on the mend now. :)

That is so like men. My mom once said, if it is a choice between 6 sick kids and one sick husband I'll take the kids every time.

Hope he feel sbetter soon
