This time Alek is down for the count with the flu.
If you know Alek, you know...he NEVER gets sick.
The poor guy has been laying (lying?) around all weekend, which is SO unlike him. He usually spends most of his weekend playing outside.
He hasn't gotten off the couch all weekend.
Alek marks the fourth person in our family to come down with this nasty bug. And when I say 'nasty' I mean NASTY. It starts out with a really sore throat, which lasts for two days, followed by the aches and fever which last at least three more. After that you're left weak for at least a few days more.
This is the same stuff Shad, Maddie and I were hit with a couple of weeks ago.
Alek is just finishing day two of the fever. I didn't realize he had the sore throat, and sent him to school on Thursday and Friday, thereby contaminating his whole fifth grade class, I'm sure.
The thing is, I know if Alek has come down with it, its just a matter of time before Anya and Nick come down with it. Nick comes down with EVERY fever within 10 miles of us.
If you don't hear from me for awhile, just know I'm nursing my poor babies back to health. I just pray we don't start another round of this for the six of us.
THAT would be bad.
