Bunch o' Sickos

Here's the rundown:

Kevin: has been sick since Thursday night. Fever on and off. A couple bouts of vomiting Friday. Lots of congestion and coughing. I kept him home from school Friday and he was sick for most of the weekend but seemed to be doing better by last night so I sent him to school today. This afternoon his fever is back and he's all sneezy and coughy.

Joey: has a low-grade fever as of this afternoon. So far no other symptoms, but our experience with this bug is that the fever is just the opening act.

Daisy: Woke up at about 3 a.m. screaming and crying that she couldn't sleep. Fever up to 102.3 today. A couple bouts of vomiting this morning. Congested. Kept her home from school today.

Annabelle: went to school today but as of this afternoon has a low-grade fever.

Lilah: No fever but lots of congestion.

Finn: No fever but lots of congestion and some coughing.

I don't think anyone is going to school tomorrow.

Oh, and Michael's on chemo this week.

Good times, good times.

Thinking of you. Going through similar stuff here. Fewer kids so far though. Not fun.
Hope they all get better soon!!!!

hope everyone feels better soon! did you get them the h1n1 vax? (i'm thinking no). vomitting and fever are the two main symptoms of that. most kids i've seen feel better w/in a few days.
