Get Well Essentials for the Stomach Bug

For the last few days the guys in our house have been battling the stomach bug. At the first sign of trouble I went to the store to stock up on get well essentials. This list is what I use when the tummy bug starts to attack.

Note: Always consult a doctor.


Foods:
*Apple sauce and bananas are great for stopping up the system when diarrhea hits
*Gatorade to replace electrolytes
*Saltine crackers to nibble on when you can finally keep food down.
*Green apples when you feel nauseous
*7up for nausea
*Chicken noodle soup and chicken broth
*Jello and Popsicles
*Plenty of drinking water

Medications:
*Pro-biotics will replenish the good bacteria in the intestines and boost the immune system
*Pepto to calm the stomach
*Emetrol for nausea
*Any other medications your doctor recommends

Cleaning Supplies:
*Mask and gloves
*Trash bags
*Clorox or disinfectant wipes
*Lysol or disinfectant spray
*Toilet bowl cleaner with bleach and disinfectant
*Laundry detergent

Miscellaneous:
I also bought reading material for guys while they were laying down. We also utilized the Tivo and DVDs most of the day.

I wouldn't wish the stomach bug or flu on anyone. If you are one of the unfortunate ones, it's best to have these items on hand. You do not want to go to the store when you are sick.

To your health,

Amanda
