There is puke aplenty in this story. You've been forewarned.
DD2 had an upset tummy on and off this weekend. No fever. I gave her a bath Saturday night and as we were getting her PJs on, she started throwing up. Her towel was right there and so I caught the puke, but the smell was so bad that it just set me off, and I started throwing up, too. OMG. I have gotten gaggy while cleaning up kid or dog puke before, but I have never, ever lost it like that.
So DD1 is in the room, too, in her towel naked and gagging because two people are throwing up, DH runs in and tries to hustle DD2 to the bathroom and we're both trying to tell DD1 to leave the room while I'm losing my dinner in a bath towel on the floor. It was like the vomit scene in Bridesmaids come to life in my house. Dear God.
DH, bless him, ended up scrubbing the residual puke out of the carpet while I pulled myself together and took a shower.
And the fun part? I vomited so hard that I broke a bunch of the little blood vessels around my eyes, and we leave Wednesday for my cousin's swanky wedding (as in, rumored to have cost upwards of $100K) in Chicago this weekend. I look like I am recovering from a) too much sun exposure, b) a not-too-recent beating and/or c) meth addiction. Makeup helps, but I reeeeeeaaally hope that I do some miraculous healing in the next few days.
Ugh, stomach bugs are the worst. I am a sympathy puker so I can relate. I'm sure your eye will look a lot better by the weekend and you will be able to cover up anything still noticeable with make up by then.
Aw, that's awful. GD2 had hers get that bad over the weekend. We were at the store and she sneezed so bad she got snot all over her face. The darling dear proceeded to wipe it all over her coat while I was grabbing tissues. Her eyes popped red from the vomiting and coughing too. If it makes you feel better, her eyes are normal today. It only took a couple days for the red to go away. They heal quickly.

I feel your pain. My baby was puking Friday night (on my husband twice, thank God, not me). But I was puking all day yesterday...I couldn't even hold down ginger ale. Then the dog puked on the floor last night.
I'm not sure how my husband didn't get it, but he's a lucky lucky man.
