      Thanks for the tips….

      We’ve been hit really hard this week. My 6 year old

      daughter ate about 5 cheerios today which is a huge

      breakthrough – since she hasn’t eaten since last

      friday. she started with gastroenteritis (better

      known as the stomach flu/bug) and then before she was

      able to recover from that, she got hit with the flu.

      she was literally hours away from going to the er.

      the dr said if she didn’t show signs of improvement

      today, we’d have to take her. fortunately, she’s

      improved and her fever is gone. thank god.

      i – on the other hand – am miserably sick….if only i

      had koolaid….i do have one more bottle of gatorade

      in the house, but i’m keeping it for my daughter to

      continue to drink.
