(Scary music) It’s heeeerrrreeee….
We have had our first personal encounter with the swine flu! Our good friends from Boston came to visit us for a few days this weekend, right after attending a wedding in Indianapolis. I picked them up yesterday and they were scheduled to head out Tuesday morning. We have been looking forward to this for quite some time, as it has been a whole year since we have seen them.
Last night, Jake had a headache, and started to get a fever. My senses perked up just enough to make sure Lovebug wasn’t hugging or loving on him while he had a fever. (This was such a bummer because Lovebug was really close to them when they lived in Cincy) Well, this morning Jake woke up with a 101 degree fever, sore throat, body aches, and a cough. Oh boy.
Kristen googled symptoms of H1N1 and of course, one of the top four priority cities for the flu is Indianapolis. She immediately took him to Urgent Care, where he tested positive. They wisely decided to fight this one out in a hotel, and hopefully spare our kids the sickness. The hubs is taking them there now.
Needless to say our house smells like the inside of a Lysol can. I actually am not very worried, but would definitely appreciate your prayers for Jake and Kristen, and for our family’s protection as well.
