US Influenza

I am happy to announce that after 6 days of 101 – 102 degree fever, the six year old is finally entering the 24-hour fever free zone!  It has been a ride, let me tell ya’.  I don’t even know where we picked it up (except maybe a Wal-Mart buggy), but I pray you all will be flu-free.

According to this map, it looks like the rest of the country is experiencing similar times.  Scary, huh?

A huge blessing, though, is that the four year old has escaped most of it with the exception of some congestion, cough and runny nose.  We are extremely thankful he remains seizure free since July 2007!

Heading back to school and a “normal” life, whatever that is!!! 

Blessings to you all 🙂

    Ack! That nasty flu hit us here bad too. We had both parents and all 5 kiddos sick. The one and two and a half year old had 104 fevers. Yuck! I am glad to hear that you are getting over it and getting past it!

  3. Thank God it’s over!! Bless Craig’s heart, I know he had to be miserable. I know God has set Brett free from those nasty seizures. Guess we’ll be seeing you ALL of Sunday!

    Thanks Traci! “Little Buddy” is doing great!

    Jenni – Welcome. So sorry to hear of the epidemic at your house. We have six in our family, and was really praying that it wouldn’t spread to everyone. I guess that’s one thing large families get the “joy” of sharing — each other’s germs 😉 Have a great day!

    Dreama – Thanks for your confidence and faith regarding Brett. (And thanks to everyone else, too) All of your prayers have, no doubt, made a huge impact on our little boy’s life.

    God is so great and we give Him the praise for Brett’s healing!

  5. I know it can be trying at times to have a sick kid, especially for 6 days! I’m glad to hear your young ‘un is doing better.
