Once again thank you to all my sponsors, the walk went pretty well on Sunday. I had expected a bit more fanfare, maybe a start line/finish line banner or spectators but downtown Hartford is pretty deserted on a Sunday so there was barely any traffic to stop let alone people around to see what the huge MOB scene was about. There were lots and lots of walkers which was good. Both Erin and I surpassed our fund raising goals so we were very pleased about that.
After the walk:
The downside... poor little Ben started vomiting and having diarrhea in the wee hours of the morning before the walk. He had been having some milk and soy intolerance issues so we all assumed this was related to that (thinking maybe he switched bottles with Sam or something.) He was a good sport all day, sleeping through most of the walk. Later that evening after we left, Sam and Erin also got sick! So much so that Erin ended up needing IV fluids to rehydrate! It wasn't long before it hit our house. Colin threw up around 5:00 am on Tuesday morning and had a few bouts of diarrhea but is mostly recovered now. Sean has been hit the hardest and has been home from work for two days. He actually has to report to employee health services in the am to have a swine flu test before he is allowed to return to work (we are pretty sure this is NOT swine flu since that is a respiratory flu and not a stomach flu). I have so far managed to avoid the stomach issues but have come down with a head cold (or allergies, but I think its a cold).
