4 Boxes

4 Boxes - the number of boxes of Kleenex we have gone through in this house since last WEDNESDAY!!! (And these are the jumbo boxes, mind you!!!) Yes, we have been hit - last week Chloe battled Influenza A - and has so kindly shared it with me. Poor thing - her temp was 104 or higher from Wednesday through Friday - runny nose, horrible cough, high fever - you get the picture. And now, yesterday I woke up with 102 fever!! Yes - it is NOT fun - now I know why she had such a hard time sleeping, breathing, etc. So - here we go - our oldest has started in with the symptoms as well - this is when large families AREN'T a blessing!!! :)

Ugh! We've been sick here too. Sawyer had tonsilitis two weeks ago and missed a week of school. (I didn't even know people had tonsilitis anymore!) Then Sydney had some sort of virus last weekend. Thankfully, we've avoided the actual flu! Hopefully those flu shots will keep on working. Hope you feel better soon!

I'm so sorry to hear you have been hit!! Eric came down with influenza A last Friday and stayed in our bedroom until today. He finally is better and went back to work. We are hoping his isolation and spraying everything that he touch with Lysol helped contain it so the rest of us don't get it. Nothing so far so we are keeping our fingers crossed. The poor guy about went nuts locked in his room for 6 days straight! It is nasty stuff. Poor Choloe ... I am so hoping our kidos don't get it after watching Eric go through it! Praying for a quick recovery!

Trying To Have a Baby - A Mother's Story

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
