When it rains, it pours...

Here's how our week has gone....

Chris was very sick but stayed at school all day on Monday. He went to the doctor on Tuesday and has a bacterial infection. He's still not feeling too well.

Tuesday they sent me home from school because there were several cases of flu in both of my schools. That evening I started coughing, and Chris insisted I go to the doctor yesterday. I don't have walking pneumonia, so they started me on Tamiflu. I think I had a stomach bug on top of that, because I couldn't keep anything, not even water, down yesterday. Thankfully that part is better today, but I still feel pretty cruddy.

2:00 today the school nurse calls and Adam is running a fever. I rush up there to get him and the ped's office says they'll work us in. Then at 3:30 the nurse calls my cell and Isaac is there with a 103 fever. Chris rushes to get him, cancels his basketball practice (Chris is the coach) and rushes him to be worked in at the ped's office too.

So now they both have Type A flu.

Just lovely.

My mil is on her way down here to keep them at her house here in the county so they are away from me, even though I've already been around them....hoping maybe between that and the Tamiflu I won't get it full blown.

Calgon, take me away!!!!!!!!!

If you keep up with me on message boards, sorry if you read this more than once. I didn't have the strength to write a new witty post!

That stinks! I hope you all get to feeling better. Two of my children have been sick for 3 weeks now. This stinks! So tired of the runny noses and the coughing just started yesterday. *sigh*

If Calgon comes by to take you away can I get a ride?
