DAY 11


We are on day 11 of Influenza Type B in our house.....sigh...... Kirsten is finally back to functioning again, after adding a case of pink eye to the equation. I battled it for the past week, but seemed to fair better with it than the kids did. Poor Boo is just wiped out. She cries and whines all day, and finally gave in to the sleep this morning on the couch. I'm actually grateful that the only symptoms of this flu is the fever, aches, and general lethargy. I'll take that any day over the stomach flu. Just crossing my fingers that the third kid doesn't come down with it (yeah, right).

I had to go get Shea from school today. I think she has the upper respitory stuff. Poor Boo. Give her a hug for me.

I feel so bad that you are all going through that. Blake missed the entire week before Christmas with influenza. Interesting to be forbidden from school--no exams or anything for him. Every person in our house was put on medicine immediately and it was a very hard week all the way around. Wish I was close so I could love on you all more!

I'm sorry to hear you've all been so sick! Noah missed 8 days of school after having a high (101-103)fever for 9 days. We were to the doctor 4 times in 10 days and his diagnosis changed from "viral" to pneumonia and an ear infection. Unfortunately, I CAN relate to just wanting everyone healthy! It's so hard to watch your kiddos suffer. I hope Boo's feeling much better soon! Take care--sending many hugs your way!

Oh no, I hope you all are feeling better soon! We had an 8 day stomach flu last year and Isabelle actually lost 5 lbs on her tiny little body. There's nothing worse than watching your children suffer...

::Hugs::

I wish I was there to snuggle her. Casey has been out of school all week and it's hard being out of routine. I feel wiped out, but is it ghost symptoms?? Who knows. Hope the girls get better soon!! Give Boo a kiss for me.

Wow! You guys have had it. Sounds like everyone else has too. So far we are all doing ok. Steph and Tanek had bad colds but seem ok now. Gary so far has missed getting anything thankfully. Hope you are all on the mend. The pictures of Emily are so sweet.
