10:30 PM: Sophie recovered just fine from her stomach bug and has been doing very well--happy and healthy. The same can't be said for the rest of us, though. In the middle of the night last night, Elisabeth started throwing up and having diarrhea. After we were both up and down helping her, Randall finally slept on the floor next to her bed so he could be nearby. She was very sick and miserable all day (and we did lots of laundry), but she finally seemed to have things under control by around 7:00 tonight.
Unfortunately, that was around the same time that Randall started feeling terrible. He could tell he was headed for trouble, so he called some folks from the church to let them know he might not be able to lead worship tomorrow. He started throwing up a half hour ago and seems to feel better for now. I am really hoping he gets the version Sophie had, since it seemed fairly short-lived. As you can imagine, I am being very careful to wash my hands and use sanitizer. As hectic as things are at work for me right now, I can't afford to lose a day. And one of us needs to be healthy to take care of everyone else!
