the flu or not the flu...

in this house it is not the flu...

i thought this picture was so cute (thanks judy) seems as though we are surrounded by people who are getting the flu and yet we seemed to have picked up some sinus infection and bronchitis instead. very similar symptoms but slightly different treatment. kelsey has been hit really hard with the fever, sore throat, sinus headache, ear ache, body ache, cough, tightness in her has been a long week of antibiotics, mucinex, advil, and cough 4 boxes of tissues (at least). ashley has been flirting with a head cold, slight fever and sore 4 boxes of tissues (at least).

i am doing ok so far...keep praying that we can fight this stuff off without anyone getting worse.

kelsey missed a few days of school and is back now but totally exhausted when she gets home. her field hockey team plays friday afternoon and she hopes to be able to play without collapsing on the turf...they are in the playoffs...this is big stuff!!!

ashley went in late two days but has seemed to not get hit quite as hard as kelsey...maybe that was because she was not rolling around in the snow on saturday??

last i heard meg is good. hopefully she is stock-piling some vitamin C.

well...that is all the updates for now. on monday ash gets the results of her knee MRI back and we find out if she needs PT or surgery.

thanks for checking in

stay well...

Love the picture. Lots of sickness going around. Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Good luck to Kelsey and the field hockey team. Try to stay healthy Tammy.

Some advice on avoiding the flu:
1. Don't bob up and down in front of someone who is sneezing yelling "Ha! Ha!...can't get me..."
2. Don't dig in the wastebasket full of used tissues for a missing coupon (it's only 50 cents and it's probably expired anyway)
3. Don't volunteer to wipe your neighbor kid's runny nose. Give him a tissue (which you lay on the ground and he has to pick up) and say "Go see momma!"
4. ...and this one is crucial. Don't lick the dripped ice cream on your shopping cart handle! (why are you eating ice cream in this weather---for crying out loud?)

Hope this helps you stay well!
Love & prayers from CA,
Aunt Katie
