Flu 2011

Unfortunately we had a visit from the flu this week. Gwen started on Saturday night. See was up for about 2 hours throwing up then finally went to sleep tossing and turning, the next night, she only got sick twice. Monday morning I called the doc and was warned it is extremely contagious and not fun. Monday night around 9:00, I heard someone else getting sick. Unfortunately Grady got me. I took my very dirty shirt off and called for Neal. First he got a little excited seeing his half naked wife in the hall waiting for him, then he walked in to the nursery to see a disaster. Within an hour, I was in the bathroom. I could barely take care of myself let alone anyone else. Poor Grady was up for 6 hours getting sick every 20 minutes. This is serious people, stay away from it! Flu shots apparently did not cover this monster. Grandma was not so lucky either, she was hit on Wednesday around noon. One word that describes it, violent. We are finally on the up swing. Here are some pics pre and post.

Finally happy and eating!

Gwen's version of the look. Crazy Daddy!

Poor babies! We had the same thing over vacation in FL last month. Addie was very sick prior to leaving. We had to take her into the pediatrician because she was so dehydrated from puking for 2days. Thank goodness she perked up right before we left, but unfortunately Dave then got it while we were on vaca followed by his parents. The only thing that saved me was I had it 2 months ago already. Like you, we all had flu shots too. It's really bad this year!

Glad you are feeling better - this flu was terrible - I got it three days before vacation and it knocked me out. - Suzy
