We've been infiltrated!

Well, we can officially say that our family has been plagued with the flu. Mallory started feeling ill yesterday afternoon, having a fever of about 101 and no appetite. This morning, she had a fever of 104 and was coughing and pitifully moaning while I tried to comfort her with the rocking chair. Patrick insisted we take her to the doctor, and though I, at first, dissented his decision, I later agreed after her fever wouldn't go down and the coughing started. He took her at 9:30 this morning and just called to tell me that she tested positive for the flu. I'm SOOO thankful Patrick was able to go to the doc for me. What a blessing! He said he'll work from home the remainder of the day...

We'll all be on tamiflu, even Ethan, to help prevent the spread. The doctor was happy we caught it so early! Hopefully, this treatment will help and it won't spread to Ethan ('cause he'd be in the hospital if he gets it!).

Anyway, Mal should be home shortly and then it's time to wage war on the flu here at home!!! We covet your prayers...

Aw, sorry to hear that. You could say you've been "influtrated," but then you'd have to say that you spent too much time with Joy. ;-)
