Influenza ...

Poor Baby Parker has the flu! :(

Not a fun thing for anyone, led alone a 6 month old! He got the flu vaccine when he got his shots at 4 months but only the Lord knows how he picked up! I could lose sleep over feeling like the worst mom in the world and him getting the flu. But instead, we are glad we caught it early enough and hope not to expose others to it! He is old enough to go on infant's motrin and it could be 8-10 days before he is better! His Dr. wants to see him on Wed. to make sure the fever is dropping. His fever spiked to 102.2 today! That was when we had to go in to the Walk-in-center and found out it was the flu for sure, through the flu swab test! All that said, we have to keep him away from babies and we will miss watching Kayleigh this week. We pray that mommy and daddy do not get it! I got the flu vaccine in January, but Mike has not had it! So the prayer here is that we both stay well enough to care for him.

If you think of it, say a prayer for Parker!

Thanks so much,

Jenn, Mike and Parker
