Before Watching Outsourced on NBC...

... I would recommend watching John Jeffcoat's Outsourced. It's about a guy named Todd who is sent to India to train his company's call center. Todd, who is referred to as Mr. Toad by the locals, experiences challenges in management in a different culture. 

The new TV sitcom is an adaptation of the film.

Stomach Bug

My six-year-old boy has been attacked by a stomach bug. 

At 4:00AM, he came to my room to complain about stomach pains.  He crawled into bed and threw up.  He kept throwing up until he reached the bathroom.

After cleaning himself, he crawled back to his bed and went back to sleep.  When he woke up two hours later, he threw up again.

He stayed home from school.  We went to the local grocery store to purchase bread for toast, electrolytes drink, bananas, and apples.  Throughout the grocery store trip, he was cold and nauseous.

When we returned home, he slept for about three hours.  It seemed after his nap that his conditions had improved; however, his fever started to increase.  This evening his temperature was 102 degrees fahrenheit. 

If conditions do not improve by tomorrow morning, I'll be taking him to his doctor for an evaluation.

Hopefully it's just a stomach bug and nothing serious.
