Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Even the best of us get sick.
It’s like a slice of humble pie.
And it makes you so grateful to feel well again.
I got caught off guard yesterday with a stomach flu bug.
All my kids had it already.
I thought the battle was over.
Ha! It said.
The #1 stomach flu advice is to keep drinking.
We’ve all been there.
Does it really make sense to keep drinking
when doing that only makes you vomit again?
I’ve always just avoided everything for a few hours.
I found I’m not the only one.
Sometimes a rest of several hours is needed
for the stomach muscles to stop their spasm pattern.
Then very gradually adding warm liquids with
small amounts of sugar and salt is much easier.
I learned today it’s best to avoid
anything cold or raw
because they’re more taxing on the stomach.
So long ice water.
I found 5 more ways to recover faster
and prevent catching it.
I’ll send them tomorrow!
