Holy cow, I don't know what it was the Lewis family had, but it sure knocked us for a loop. It started with Older Daughter, then Younger Daughter, than myself, then our houseguest GG, then finally Don. Poor GG got it the worst and spent one whole night upchucking. The rest of us escaped that fate, luckily.
We've been gradually regaining our strength and going about our chores very slowly. Don's even tried to get some work done in the shop (since we have orders due) and can only manage about half an hour at a time. Our minds have been fuzzy and illogical and sometimes we even speak gibberish while trying to say something sane. Very strange.
The neighbors have all been so kind, calling for health updates and with many offers to do chores or cook meals. We haven't taken them up on anything because (a) we don't want to expose them to what we had, and (b) none of us have much of an appetite so meals aren't necessary. As I told a friend yesterday, right now we sound like a Greek chorus of the walking dead -- deep hoarse chest-rattling coughs, violent sneezes, etc. Wheee!
I'll try to get my brain to cooperate and get something intelligent on the blog in the near future. Meanwhile, thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes.
