    YES! The kids and I all got the flu! My 3 yr old son is better, but my 9 yr old daughter still has cough and fever but no more vomiting. And I was up all night vomiting pieces of my stomach, and bloody stomach acid. Feels like my stomach went through a cheese grater. Luckily, I feel better. Sore tummy, but less dehydrated, and better.

    OH! And then my husband comes home with a ton of disinfecting products and won't go into the room I am in when I had showered and disinfected already. I did get him to go out and get me some gingerale when I said that I could have used some, but I didn't think he was stopping anywhere after work. I said "I don't expect hugs or sympathy, because I take care of myself, but I don't have ANYTHING to make me feel better." I hate complaining. My husband is a hypochondriac, so he was all "we have the flu", and I was like "You don't! You're fine!" And he was like "I'm nauseous" and "I will probably throw up later." DRIVES ME NUTS!!! I hate when people talk and worry about themselves when nothing is even wrong with them. He does that at least every other day. He comes home from work and says "Guy at work was sick and now I'm all nauseated and think I am getting sick now." Ughh! And he is trippin' like 100% of the time. Insane. Random rant. Thanks for listening. I will now go suffer quietly because I am actually sick, and of course, tend to my sick children as well.

    My kids had the flu shot in October, but I guess that didn't make a difference for January.

    Your husband does realize that the flu is not a stomach virus with throwing up right? The flu, or influenza, is a respiratory illness. If you are vomiting blood, going to the doctor sounds like the right thing to do also. Hope you all feel better soon!

    Influenza B was the strain going around in my section of the country and a few doctors at work said that people who got the flu shot were still getting the flu because it did not cover Influenza B, only Influenza A.

    Optimal time to get the flu vaccination is October

    i think this is the reason why hospitals are requiring staff to take the flu-vaccines though many disagree with the idea..
