Can My Little Girl Stay Healthy?

Tonight Alyce got sick.  Again.  Instead of it being an ear infection like the past two times tonight she caught the same stomach bug that afflicted Mom on Monday night.  If Alyce's run is like Mom's it will be pretty rough for the first 24 hours and then signs of improvement.  Right now Mom is laying in bed with Alyce so that if she were to get sick again Mom can get Alyce to a tub before she ruins her sheets and pillow.  I'm hoping that Alyce empties her stomach out pretty soon so she and Mom can get a decent nights sleep.

This whole experience tops off a rather difficult winter for Alyce.  It seems that since the start of the year we can't keep her healthy.  It might be ear infections, colds, and now a stomach bug always knocking her off her feet.  If I had to guess I'd say that Alyce's longest running sick free streak is about 2 weeks since the start of the year.  With all the snow we've had lately and school being canceled Alyce has probably been to school 5 times since the start of the year.

This Winter has been holding on for far too long.  Because of these long cold streaks everyone is cooped up inside and indoor spaces are becoming a breeding ground for infections.  We need a break from the cold and a break from cabin fever.
