It is Spring Break. Two weeks of not getting up and fixing breakfast and lunches and rushing Faith off to school. Two weeks of no homework and spelling tests. Right now it is a beautiful morning and promising to be a nice day. BUT, Faith has the flu (or at least she is getting over it) and we are stuck here at home.
Faith woke up Sunday morning and requested breakfast but didn't eat much. She put on her clothes for church and then came and laid back down on the couch. She told me that she did not feel good. I went and felt her forehead and it was burning up. I took her temperature and it was 101.5. So, she put on her pajamas, took some Tylenol and stayed home from church with her daddy. Monday, Kevin took her to the doctor and found out that she had the flu. She had the flu strain B which the flu shot that John Derrick took was useless against. The doctor told Kevin that we would all probably get it.
We are a fairly healthy family. We get a cold or two a year. Faith has only had strept throat once and several ear infections as a baby. Never enough to have to have tubes or anything. John Derrick has had maybe two ear infections in his 4 years of life. He hardly ever gets sick. NOBODY has ever had the flu at our house till now. I am still hoping that the rest of us will not get it and Faith gets completely over it soon. So if anyone of us was to get sick, lets get sick now and not next week when we are planning on going to the mountains.
