The Flu...Really???

Lexi was diagnosed at the after hours clinic last night with Type A Influenza. They did the nose swab test. But I must say it was either a weak strand or my prayers are firin' on all cylinders these days because she has been her totally regular, fever free, happy, playful, antagonizing sister self all day. Not one single symptom of the flu remains in her body. Thank you Jesus! The doctor called today to check on her and I mentioned how maybe I shouldn't have called off the party after all because she's totally fine, but he said, "The flu is the flu, symptoms or no symptoms. She still has the flu and she's still contagious." Yeah yeah yeah, I know, but now we have to wait two whole weeks to have a party and Granny is searching for airline tickets trying decide if she wants to come back in 2 weeks to be here for our prima ballerina debut! And I will have two more weeks to be obsessive compulsive and sleepless over my party planning details.

I'm so sorry you guys are dealing with all this. It is a blessing that Lexi isn't suffering though. I have been going nuts planning Caleb's Thomas party we're having in a few weeks. It's addictive.

Your poor little bitty! So weird, but so many people (from everywhere) are coming down with the flu (again!). NO! We're supposed to be done now! It's spring! I hope the rest of y'all don't get it.

And here I was thinking you would actually feel rested up for the party when you have it since you have everything all done. Glad she's feeling better!!!

Flu is no fun! Glad she is already on the mend!

that's what happened to Cade. He was really sick for a day and then that was it, nothing more! His sister however was sick for nine days straight. I'm glad she had the short version!
