Since this is the first time any of our kids have thrown up, other than when they spit up when they were infants, there's only one sure thing for Mommy & Daddy to do now: become totally paranoid that we're going to get sick too! I started feeling the pangs of paranoia kick in right after dinner, when I felt some gastrointestinal unease starting. Then I remembered that I pretty much live in a constant state of gastrointestinal unease, so my pangs subsided. If my gastrointestinal unease turns into gastrointestinal turbulence, that will be a real cause for concern. But until then, I should be okay.
I have always thought that the Wife had a higher level of intestinal fortitude than I, but after we put the kids to bed, she asked me, "Now that we have a sick kid, do you wonder if we're going to get sick, too?" Always wanting to share my true inner feelings with the woman I love, I told her, "No, don't be silly!" I guess I chose that moment in time to finally keep my true inner feelings locked up inside. Hopefully the contents of our stomachs stay locked up inside, too. Wish us luck!
