I always have Lysol, plastic cups, straws, and Gatorade on hand.
Once the patient is able, he or she can shower.
While this is happening, open the windows, douse the entire area in Lysol, and put fresh sheets on the bed. My Mom did this for us when we were sick, and I still remember how good it felt to put on fresh jammies and climb into a newly made bed with fresh sheets.
Do all things with love.
Even when the stomach flu pays a visit.
