virus 4 - humans 2

We've been hit again.

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.
Nasty stuff.
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.

Poor Alex. Hope it doesn't last as long as projected and that no one else gets it. Do you get flu shots? We have flu shots at work tomorrow.

I hope everybody gets through it in time for you all to enjoy Thanksgiving. I told my kids last night that they are *not* allowed to get sick this week or next. We just have too much going on these next two weekends. Think it will work? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Oh, yuck. That stinks. Should I pray that the other two come down with it tomorrow? At least then, you'll be through the worst of it before Thanksgiving. Just kidding--I hope that the other two just have a natural immunity so you can get out of having more sick kids.

Awww poor Alek! I hope he feels better soon and that no one else gets sick!

We are sharing the sniffles, but thank goodness no FEVER! Praying for you and yours too!

Hopefully tonight Alex is feeling better and that the bug has not bitten anyone else in the house.

Oh, you poor things! I just got over the flu, but it was not nearly as awful as that! Sore throats are so miserable. Good luck getting everyone feeling better.
