It's Been a Really Rough Week

Meows from Mudpie!

I know I seem to be saying this more and more often lately, but it's been a really rough week at my house.

It all started on Sunday afternoon when my grandpa started feeling sick to his tummy after lunch. Within minutes it all made a return appearance. Throughout the rest of the day he was in and out of the bathroom. 

By Sunday night he was so weak he ended up falling in the bathroom. It took Mommy until nearly 2AM to get him up. 

Thankfully he kept everything down on Monday, and while Mommy was exhausted, we stayed up late Monday night because she got some new Conway videos in the mail from a wonderful friend. Then at 4:30AM on Tuesday I was rudely awakened by Mommy pushing me off her because she had to run to the bathroom.

Yep...now she was sick.

Tuesday was spent napping on the couch in between trips to the bathroom, but she managed to lick the bug in 24 hours (although her tummy is still far from 100%).

But guess what? By Tuesday night my grandma had it!!! She's handicapped by severe scoliosis, so getting sick like this only makes her weaker, and by Wednesday Mommy was having to practically drag her to and from the bathroom.

Everyone is slowly recuperating, but they're weak, tired, and Mommy is sore all over from so much heavy lifting.

I'm just one little tortie and I can't take care of all these people. SEND HELP!!!

Oh no! Sounds like something a few days of the RICE diet and Imodium. I hope your mom had some in the house. Glad no one had to go hospital and everyone is hydrating well. At least 2 liters of H2O a day. Sending healing purrz.

Oh noes!! That sounded like a really rough week for your mum.
Good to hear everyone is on the mend. Here's hoping everyone keeps getting better and feeling better!!
It's hard work for a kitty to look after all the sick people in the home. Hope you got extra treats!
Purrs, Julie

Sounds like another round of norovirus, soon to be making Virginia a less pleasant place than nature intended. Yick. I hope poor Mudpie's purr-box isn't completely worn out.
