Is it the eggs?

Visible to anyone in the world
Three out of four of us are recovering from a bug or are still to some degree ill. Not a fever, but a tummy bug that 'flushes through' in 48 hours ... then something more like fatigue. First me Mon, Tues last week. Then my wife over the weekend (I've been away all this time), and now my daughter. But not, and perhaps never my son. The last time this happened our daughter was two - she went down with 'flu on Christmas day and we each followed in turn. My daughter is vegetarian so we can't blame in on the chicken - but what about the eggs? Unwashed salad?

Or the norovirus?

Whilst eggs & bagged salads could both give rise to food poisoning, I think it would be hard to pinpoint a bug from norovirus without a stool sample........ yuk!

I've probably had both, and both are exhausting, so I feel for you all.

I won't post a picture! But surely we've reached the stage where we could send current medical status and images to a clinician and they give a POV?

So sorry you are all unwell.  Keep up the liquids and hope you are all better soon.
