One down

Dani knocked on the bathroom door right as I was getting out of the shower.  When I opened the door, she leaned against me. "I'm nauseous." Dani's voice was scratchy and shaky. Putting my hair in a high ponytail, I braided it, then twirled it around and tucked the ends in, instead of blowdrying my hair. This probably saved me over five minutes and gave me the time to get Danielle set up on the couch, with a garbage pail, a wet washcloth, and crackers. Josh offered to run out to get Dani stuff, so I sent him for ginger ale.

When I had a break I called to see how she was feeling, but Dani was asleep. After I got home, Alex ate an orange for dinner and then claimed her throat hurt. I hope we aren't all getting sick. If Danielle is better tomorrow then we'll all be fine. If she's still sick and Alex is still complaining, we're all going down.

Hope all are on the mend soon, and that it doesn't go through everyone...stomach bug in our neck of the woods the last couple of weeks too, luckily it was just a couple of days.

It's been terrible around here, I work in a team of 12 and 8 have been sick at least one day over the last two weeks. Some of them up to a week.

The sad part is we all work from home 3-4 days a week so it's not even shared germs at work it's just hitting the entire city.
