Around the House

Sick germs are around this house today. The flu is making its way.

Ryan started it with a fever in the middle of the night on Tuesday. He was feverish most of the day on Wednesday but by Thursday was feeling better. Now he just has the cold symptoms and feels well enough to torment his sisters!

Then last night, Emily started with the fever and a sore throat. I was mentally prepared to be up most of the night with her, but surprisingly, she slept pretty well. She had a slight fever throughout the day but it got higher by the evening. She does not like her grape flavored acetaminophen so this morning I had to crush it all up and put it in her oatmeal. She ate a little of it but not enough to get the full amount of medicine. So tonight I went and bought some bubblegum flavored medicine and by the time I got back from the drugstore, she had fallen asleep. When she awakened briefly, she refused the medicine again. So, I don't know how she's going to sleep tonight. Hopefully, the fever will break.

So, with all that, I'm just trying to keep up with the laundry and dishes! Hopefully, no one else will get sick.

We have no plans for this weekend other that puttering around the house and tending to the sick ones. We'll see what comes up!

Blessings to you all!
