  • We have a house full of sickies.
  • Anna's been sick all day with a horrible headache and sore throat. She has either been sleeping or lying on the couch.
  • Ellie woke up feeling fine, but by mid afternoon, she was not feeling well either.
  • Sam, on the other hand, is feeling much better today than yesterday.
  • Ben woke up his usual happy self until about 6pm. He told me to feel his head, he was sick. He didn't feel warm, but he crawled up in the chair and went to sleep. When he woke up he was warm and then proceeded to throw up.
  • Emma woke up fine, but is now running a fever of 102.2. She doesn't act sick except for sleeping more and eating less.
  • I've been trying to take care of five sick kids and do loads and loads of laundry with no help!
  • So much for starting school back today!
  • Paul Jr is feeling much, much better.
  • Zack, on the other hand, is still sick.
  • He flew back to Kansas yesterday, sick. I felt so bad for him, having to fly not feeling well.
  • Paul and I have so far escaped the sickness. We're praying that neither one of us gets it.
  • I can't remember the last time we've had this much sickness.
  • It's not the stomach bug, although some of the kids have thrown up. It's like a "mini-flu"- headache, sore throat, achy all over, sometimes a stomach ache. Paul Jr and Sam have gotten over it in 2-3 days.
  • Here's hoping all the children are on the mend!
