We have a sickness in our house. Two kids home from school, two kids well. More importantly, two parents well! The parents have to be well in order to keep the track to the bathroom clear and have fresh bowls at the ready in case of emergency. In which there were quite a few. Emergencies, that is.
Yes, two of my little lovelies have spent much of the last two days with bowls on their laps, gatorade in their cups and naught much else in their stomachs.
So tell me this. Would food poisoning wait a full 24 hours to hit, or would it show up sooner? My experience tells me that when I am sick from food, I am sick almost immediately, but read on.
This is suspicious to me. After church on Sunday, we went out with some friends. There were about eight or nine families from church there, too. We live in a small town, not a lot of options for the after church crowd.
Monday night my kids got sick, along with at least two other members of three of the families we saw at lunch. So a total of eight people sick only 24 hours after we all ate together. (Sorry for all that math!) I'm wondering if I should call the restaurant or if everyone just got the same bug.
What do you think?
