IT HAS ARRIVED...

Two nights ago Jace had a fever all night long. Yesterday he was completely fine. We went out to eat with my brother and his family and he seemed normal. We went back to their house for awhile and he played and I didn't think much about his fever.

Look how cute she is in her puffy vest!

Jace got up this morning and drank some water. Then boom, he started puking! You guessed it the flu has arrived at our house and I'm not a bit excited about it. He hasn't felt good all day. I feel so bad for the little guy. He said to me "mommy, please just give me some medicine so I'll feel better!" Oh if it were only that easy. How do you explain to a 4 year old that medicine won't work this time!?! He's been so thirsty so he has been drinking 7UP, well he threw that up several times too. Uhhh I have a hard time cleaning up puke, but what's a mom to do. He did eat 2 pieces of cinnamon and sugar toast awhile ago and did keep that down, and now he has been sleeping for a few hours. Thank goodness he is resting.


I hope he feels better soon. I just pray that no one else in our family gets it. We have been wiping things down with Clorox wipes all day, and spraying Lysol everywhere. The flu is going around really bad right now. A local school had most of it's kindergarten class out with the flu and decided to shut the school down yesterday! It's just so scary with all the hype you hear about the H1N1 virus these days. I hope this is it, but I know with Jace being in preschool now that it's probably just the beginning.

I hope you all have a good weekend and I hope the flu bug doesn't end up at your house :(
