Default Dd just threw up- update page 2

Why would she have thrown up? Usually you would think stomach virus but all my kids have only stayed at home for weeks. We've been trying not to get sick because of the baby so we haven't been anywhere in the past days/weeks. We did go on a drive on Sunday and we were only in the van- we didn't get out at all. Before that we went to the park a week and a half ago.

We did go out to get the car fixed today. I let her play with the toys (stupid of me, I know), and we sanitized hands right after. Would that be fast enough for her to get it tonight?

I suppose it could be food poisoning, but I can't think what we could have eaten that might have been bad. Also we don't even eat meat or other stuff that is most commonly a culprit for that.

We're all supposed to go out of town on Thursday for 2 days. And it's for dh's work, so he at least HAS to go. My kids have been looking forward to this for a few weeks!

Can a kid throw up without having a virus? All she ate for dinner was cheerios and almond milk and she didn't overeat.

This is my phobia- I am so scared!!

People have gotten food illnesses from lettuce.
Yes, playing with the toys earlier today could have effected her this quickly, though I wouldn't put my money on that being it.
Your dh could have easily brought something home from work.

What about this scares you?

I have emetaphobia. It doesn't bother me so much when the kids throw up if it's not contagious but I am afraid of me throwing up, which obviously I could catch it. When I was a little girl (6 or 7) there was a little girl in my class who had brain cancer and also my uncle had terminal cancer and a friend of my mom's had cancer. So between that I knew way too much about cancer and one thing I knew was chemo made you throw up. So I drew the connection between throwing up=-cancer=death (the little girl in my class died, as did my uncle) and logically I know that isn't the case but it's imprinted on my subconscious that way. Almost 30 years later and it's still there that way and I can't "erase" it. I can remind myself over and over that if I throw up I won't die from it. I know I won't. And yet it's the end of the world to me. I haven't thrown up since I was 12 because I just don't let myself do it, but yet I'm still not completely sure of my ability to not let myself throw up so I know I still might.

Starting at 2 1/2 my oldest started throwing up everytime he got any sickness. We've done road trips and airplane trips with a puking boy. It's hard but there's nothing you can do about it.

And there's no reason to feel bad about it. Our world is broken and sickness happens. She could have just adjusted her shoe and gotten just the right germ on her fingernail. Things like that happen and it's no one's fault.

Cross post. Praying for peace.

Thank you.

So I forgot this but dh reminded me- this evening she bit into the bottom outside peel of a rotten banana. Dh thinks that is what did it. He thinks it's food poisoning because her puke smells sooo vile. I've never heard of food poisoning from a rotten banana, but I guess it's possible. It was a pretty gross banana. What do you guys think?

Totally possible. If that's the case it should get through her system quickly. At least that's what I always tell myself.

(FWIW ~ Some stomach bugs can take only 4 hrs from exposure to illness, so the toys could be the culprit. Or your DH. Or the banana. It's SO HARD to know. )

Vile smelling puke sounds similar to what we have had run through our house. Hopefully it will last about 12 hours. That is what happened here.

We have had about a million (ok maybe 5, but it seems like a million) stomach bugs run through our house since the beginning of December. They have all been mild and have all come within half a day of being exposed, unless DH has been the carrier all along.

Every one of them have made the kids have a tummy ache, thrown up once or maybe twice, and been fine in 12 hours. I haven't even felt slightly like I"m going to throw up. Mine has been the other end Every time.

She's fine this morning. She had some gatorade and she's dancing around energetically. She only puked twice, slept the rest of the night, then woke up fine. Dd1 is feeling sick now, but that happens fairly regularly anyway, so we'll see if anything comes of it. If anyone is going to get sick they should just do it now. Then maybe we can still go on our trip.

What would you guys do about the trip? We're supposed to leave in 2 days (but in the afternoon), it's about an hour and a half drive to where we're staying in a hotel. Dh has stuff planned but I could stay in the hotel room with sick kids if any kids become sick while we are there. I don't think cancelling the trip altogether is an option. Dh would have to go anyway, unless he is sick.

E puked last night (Ipuked 3 nights ago) and were leaving Thurs on an 8 hour trip. The incubation of this puke in our house seems to be 48 hours. I'm going to wait until Thurs morning, and if no one puked that night previously we'll go. Because then it will have been over 48 hours since the last round.
