The joy of a sick child and the aftermath...

If you have a weak stomach don't read anymore.

DD has been fighting both a cold and the flu combined for the past two weeks. She's had a nasty cough added to the mix. While I was away working this week, she had a friend come and visit ( it was her friends march break). DD had a coughing spell the other night. She got up and took prescription cough medicine, that contained codeine on an empty stomach. ( Can you see where this is going?)

She promptly turned around and threw up in the kitchen. I think she may have aimed for the garbage can, but instead, threw up over the wall beside the garbage can and hit the floor register. Yes, that one, that the heat come out of...

Bless the children for cleaning as best they could, but my house was a bit stinky... I did some exploring, took the cover off the register ( soaked the damn thing three times to clean it) and it looks like I'm going to have to go into the basement, take the duct work apart and clean it that way... Sigh... Salsa is not pretty when it's been regurgitated.... and really not pretty when it's down inside the heat duct and I can't reach it...

I'm off to figure out how to do this... I hope everyone's week-end is off to a kinder start than mine.
