There appears to be a pretty bad stomach flu in our area. Lots of nausea, chills and cramps… headache too.
If I were you… I’d make sure that you have Chicken Noodle and other broth-like soups in the house. Bread for toasting and it seems that Cream of Wheat is soothing and gives some nourishment. Hot tea is a plus. Ready Rice from Uncle Bens is convenient — (90 seconds in the microwave) and it makes a good slurry with College Inn Chicken Broth. I also bought a container of HerbOx Bouillon. I don’t know how much this bug will be going around but you’ll need to have fluids — Ginger Ale and light fruit juices available. The fructose will help with the nausea. I also bought Emetrol, Cola Syrup and some sort of chewable tablets that seemed to help. I was the care giver since last Thursday night — but I also headed for the Pepcid complete this morning. Got both a headache and what feels like being really hungry… But I’m not… I know — not pleasant — especially with the holidays here and all. I don’t think you’d want to expose anyone to this if you can avoid it. Hope that you don’t have to experience it. I stuck a few links in the text.
