I have read that in the War of Northern Aggression more soldiers died from dysentery than combat.

I don't know numbers, but I do know that dysentery, campylobacter, Typhus, Scurvy and related maladies have brought many a country's armed forces to its knees. I also have kids Benadryl, Motrin, Tylenol, and some simple antibiotics.

Kiddie Benedryl, I'll have to grab some.
The CVS near me has a close out on some pain killers, antacids, and decongestants so I'll look tomorrow when I get there.

Since I did not know what campylobacter was I had to look it up.

For those of you who also did not know here is a CDC website.

While at the store this morning I went looking for some iodine. I had to go to the pharmacist and fill out poison control paperwork just to buy it. What a pain in the ass.....
I also found some chewable low dose aspirin for adults, another CPR mask, a large tub of gummy multi vitamins, and a bunch of glucose tablets.

It is time to start stocking up on band-aids also UD. Kids love them and will want one for every minor boo-boo. Character band-aids are preferred!

I've got plenty of all sizes. Even super hero ones. I always seem to cut up my hands on a regular basis or lose fingernails.

The super hero ones were a close out item at the local Walgreens. Half price.

Instead of pedialite, I use Gatorade. My little girl would get a stomached bug every so often. The dr recommended pedialite but she hates the taste of it so they suggested Gatorade. You can get powdered Gatorade which would make packing and storage a lot easier. Tylenol and ibuprofen when they start teething or when their molars starts coming in.
