Flu

The flu has hit out house. Thankfully, only one of us has it. Poor Tirzah...day 4 of the Flu for her! It started with sneezing and coughing and quickly progressed to a high (39.9) fever. The fever has past and she now is suffering from a very sore throat. I talked to a Nurse this morning and we await a call from our Dr. However, the expected advice is this: treat the symptoms, stay home, rest and wait to get better...

Get better soon! Time for some snuggles on the couch and old movies now that the fever's gone

I'm so sorry to hear about my sweet ZaZa! Hugs & kisses honey!

Sounds like great treatment. Lots of Vitamin C, fluids and rest will do the trick.

Thanks Cheryl,
She is sleeping as I type...will be a 3 hours nap, I think. I will buy some vitamine C and keep coaxing her to drink. Drinking is a bit hard for her with her throat so sore...but she IS getting better! :)

Yeah...My school sent home the first notice in the area for having illness rate at over 10% of student population....the 3 day break seems to have helped us dramatically, but Jon's school and the younger kids' school sent home similar notes today...have her rest lots and don't send her back too soon.
Hugs and prayers from the Piers.

Thanks Girls. She is getting better...but just not ALL better yet. We appreciate your prayers. She is eating a bit, thank you Jesus for Kraft dinner and popsicles...all that she wants to eat at the moment!

Diva,
In 4 days she has watched: Zoro, Robin Hood, Annie and Narnia (The lion the witch and the wardrobe)...

More to come tomorrow...

Feel Better Sweetie!
Holly: My grandaughter has been sick since Sunday 103 temp.
Just when she thought she was better this morning up came the temp and breakfast.
Son-inlaw now has it.
We are seeing so many people coming in to the store with the flu.
Praying for a full and fast recovery for our little darlings.
