"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

i know....i know

I promised pictures and pictures you will get. Soon. But it's been tough
keeping up with the sick kiddos.

Anna Grace was back at the doctor's yesterday. She tested positive for Influenza A.
Her fever yesterday skyrocketed to 104.9. Scared the bejeezus out of me. Her high fever is now accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea. Poor baby is feeling miserable and not eating at all. I am managing to have her keep down some Gatorade and popsicles. She was skinny to start with, you could just imagine now.

My sweet girl is quarantined in our bedroom, which I know she doesn't mind, since she's got the TV, toys and Mama's attention all to herself. Although she may not even realize it because all she's done is sleep.

I say it every time, but as I imagine any Mama would feel, I just hate when my kiddos are sick.

Kai managed to get over his afflictions and only has a bit of a lingering cough. Fortunately, he's not contagious since he no longer has a fever. He's back at school.

AJ and Amanda have remained in the all-clear zone. My big guy, Adam (the younger one, not the groom) is home with a fever, too.

Please pray that our little girl recover soon and that the rest of us get through this without any more illnesses.

It's been a tough year for the Bombardiers. Is it 2010 yet?

Sounds like we have the same quarantine routine going on in our households..the master bedroom. There's a toilet, tv, and bed all the things you need when sick and you don't need to share it with the rest of the family. Parents don't count since we are already over exposed by caring for them!!

Hope all is better soon!

I am so sorry to hear you are doing another round of sickness. Poor family. Praying!

Karin said...

So sorry to hear you have the flu bug AGAIN. Several of my kids have it, too. H1N1 is just hitting here.

Aus said...

Wow - it's a gift that just keeps giving eh? (Sorry - you don't need a smart aleck right now!) Poor AG - but at least when she wants to eat she'll be allowed whatever she wants eh? (Sorry - here I go again...) We'll keep you guys in our prayers -

hugs - aus and co.

I have one home sick today too! Praying he keeps it to himself and does not share it w/the rest of us. I hope your crew gets better soon!

Praying everyone gets better soon!! This has ben one heck of a year...

David and Sarah said...

Oh, I'll be praying. Lily had a similar illness last year--5 days of 103-104.5 fever, no eating, just laying on the couch. A miracle that no one else in our family got sick. I'll pray the same for yours.


Jill said...

I am SOOO sorry you are still have sickness at your house. I am praying it RIGHT OUT THE DOOR.

I will be looking forward to wedding photos when you get to them!

Oh no! I hope all are better by now as I am seeing this a few days after you posted it. You have certainly had more than your fair share of "bugs" this year!
Big Hugs!
