House of germs
That's right, we are infected with the flu. Everyone but Charlie, whch am totally grateful for. Thursday, Hudson woke up with a fever that I could not get to break. So adter nap, I decded to head to the Pedi. They swabbed his nose, and sure enough he had some weird strain. I took the other three kids to Tulsa to try to keep them from catching it, but alas it was to no avail. Sunday morning Carter and Ella had high fevers, and I felt like someone had beat me with a baseball bat. I hurt everywhere. So we loaded up and headed back to Texas. I disinfected all their toys hoping that would help, but Monday was way rough. I didn't feel to bad, Jake felt terrible, and the kids looked like crap, and I say that lovingly. So back to the doctor we went for more Tamiflu for the rest of us. Luckily, yesterday, no one had a fever, except for me. I spent most of the day on the couch sleeping with Charlie, and Jake manned the triplets, who slept a good part of the day. Thankfully, by last night, no one had fever or any signs of more sickness. I'm feeding Charlie right now and praying that when everyone wakes up, there will still be no fevers. Mind you we all have the flu shot and we are just the lovely 17% that contracted the weird strain that was immune to the vaccine. Isn't it great to be special!
