Sure a tummy bug isn't as bad as say, childhood leukaemia, but rotavirus is a killer. I say this as the father of our eldest who was hospitalised last year, aged 4, due to a GI bug. His 2.5 yrs old sister bounced back after 24-48 hrs (as "normal"). He was in hospital for just under a week. Luckily our youngest (11 months at the time) escaped with scrupulous use of sterilisers!
Gosh, I can quite see why you take stomach bugs so seriously then, my kids have only ever had them as "normal" and often escape altogether as they're not 'sicky' kids generally. They sniff constantly from October to March, mind you!
