The flu

Yep, the piggy flu is here at our house.

Jake started out with a fever on Monday and Tuesday night and then a sore throat and cough. He threw up at school on Thursday so I took him to the doctor. He tested positive for the H1N1 flu virus, but the doctor said it looks like he's on the tail end of it. Thank the Lord!

Tamiflu isn't necessary at this point, but we've been giving Jake Mucinex and rubbing VaporRub on his chest at night. If his fever comes back or if any symptoms worsen, we have to take him back to the doctor right away. But, so far so good.

We canceled his visit with his dad in Ohio this weekend. No bowling league. No church.

We're hoping the extra rest will help him fully recover without any setbacks. And, hopefully, the rest of us will stay well too.
