About midnight on Sunday night,
Mom thought she caught a bug -
multi-tasker that she is-
we wondered how she could catch a bug
while she was sleeping-
she wasn't snoring that loud
and we don't think she had her mouth open.

When she got up,
Dad was sitting in the living room
and asked her what was wrong.
She said she was sick
and he said
"you too".

It turns out that bug was
food poisoning.
And for about 24 hours,
Mom and Dad were none too happy.

It took all of the nursing skills
we could muster to get them through it.
Lilly, Becky, Ruari and Tori
are so exhausted,
they wouldn't even let us take their picture.

Mom and Dad are feeling better now
and by tomorrow should be back to normal.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi, Becky and Tori

Maybe my mom's most unfavoritists sickies bug. So sorry you had to run into a bad, bad food germ, but how nice that you had such wonderful round the clock nurses to help you on the road to recovery. (For some reason, I haven't seen your blog pop up when you post - so sorry we haven't been by in a while - I see now that you've made a lot of posts - seems to be working again! Missed you - rest and feel better)

Kisses and Hugs xoxoxoxo

Oh no..not food poisoning. That's a bug that put mom in the hospital a few years ago. She didn't have a nursing stuff like your mom does though. Take care of her and we hope everyone is better by tomorrow!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Bummer! Hope that nasty bug is exterminated from your humans soon! We pups worry about them when they get the sickies just like they worry about us when we aren't well. I'm sending some nice slobbery kisses to help them feel better!

Thank goodness you were there to help them out!

Jazzi said...

Oh NO, Mom and Dad both sick!! Good thing you are both such good nurses and can take care of your humans, WHAT would they do without you?? Probably still be sick, lol

Hope they are feeling better.


Miss Jean said...

I'm glad you are feeling better. Food poisoning is no fun. I had it years ago and I still have a "thing" about left-overs. That isn't even what caused the probelm, either!

Take care and keep me posted on Hubby.

Dory and the Mama said...

How lucky for your Mom and Dad that you were there to nurse them better. I wonder what gave them that food poisoning. Not drinking out of a ditch, or bad stuff like that, were they!

Mom has nevFUR had that kind of sikhkies but she's heard it is pretty horribly nasty bad!


~Kim~ said...

When I get sick, I love to have the kind of nursing that you have--It really does make you feel better doesn't it?? Feel better soon and listen to your nurses and get lots of rest too!!

Sherry said...

It's truly awful when the humans get sick. They won't play and, worse, they won't take you out for walks. We sure hope they're all better now.
