Swine flu has found our household. August started running a fever yesterday afternoon and this morning, it was over 103 and climbing. Eek! He was also snotting gunk like crazy and puked all over his Daddy during lunch. And not because he was choking on a piece of fruit, as is usually the case. My remarkably happy little guy managed to keep on smiling despite the heat radiating off his body - and we looked like white trash as I hauled my baby clad only in a diaper to the clinic. But I didn't care at all. I didn't want him getting ANY hotter than he had to be.

The verdict from our doc was that both my kids have the swine flu. Brooklyn started running a fever of almost 102 right after getting home from Bible study, she's also very snotty and coughing. So, after spending $100 on Tamaflu, I'm hoping the dern stuff works and they're back to normal within a few days. Unfortunately, the doctor said they're contagious for 10 days. So, we'll be a little home-bound. Sigh.

But, it's ok. It could always be worse.
