The children are all well!

We are officially FLU-FREE here!

Thank you Lord!

I am, however, battling a nasty sinus thing.... it's much better than the flu though!!

Health Update

We finally figured out that the children have the entire 'symptom set' for the flu. It didn't really occur to me that it could be the flu because when I had the flu I felt like I had been Hit By A Mack Truck. I don't remember nose/throat/chest stuff at all...

Here are the children's symptoms:
high fever, cough, headache, sore throat, stuffy nose, body aches, and some have had diarrhea...

According to the CDC website:
"Influenza usually starts suddenly and may include the following symptoms:
Fever (usually high)
Tiredness (can be extreme)
Sore throat
Runny or stuffy nose
Body aches
Diarrhea and vomiting (more common among children than adults)"

Sounds so similar, doesn't it?

Now for our update! Everyone is on the mend. Caleb and Isaac were the last to get sick and are the last two with fever. Caleb's is a little higher than Isaac's but they are both over the hump and on their way to well. I would say Joseph is 100% today and the others are following closely behind.

Thank you for your prayers!
