If you happen to follow me on instagram (melaniemomom), then you know that we are home sick wiht the flu. It started with Gabs on Thursday night. And I mean it came on FAST! IN the matter of about 4 hours, she went from sitting up and doing fine to barely able to hold her head up and on fire with fever. We had her at the doctor on Friday wiht flu confirmed. Ellie was not swabbed, but the doc gave us a script for Ellie just in case. And then, last night, after spending the whole evening preparing for our trip to see DeeDee and Granddad this morning. We were supposed to be on a plane in Jackson, MS, at 9:00 am. At around midnight, I felt Ellie's head and sure enough... fever. I started her on Tamiflu yesterday juuussst in case, and am glad I did. She also threw up twice in the middle of the night, so I knew that a flight was really out of the question. We had reservations at a lunch with the princesses at Epcot on Monday. Lots of other similar reservations. We had a big week planned. I haven't spoken of it, because, as I may or may not have mentioned that we were broken into just before the holidays. So, Todd the Bod is not cool with people knowing when we are out of town. The dude didn't really take anything, only a bowl of change. He must've been messed up, because he looked right over a lot of NICE things to get to a bucket of change. We think he was actually looking for drugs, but I digress.... oh, and he is now in jail. He hit several houses in our neighborhood. Ok, back to Disney... we hope to still make the trip, but the time may change. My girls did fairly well today, and I started Tamiflu too! Thanks to folks at work giving me their extras. We stayed in the artroom making Ellie's class's Valentines, and all was looking much better until I put them to bed. Ellie was back to 102.1. Yuck!
And here's another thing: Does anyone else use blogger for a blog and why can't I load up a photo anymore? I use the little photo icon on the top of the area I upload, and for the past couple of days, I cannot get it to ofer me a place to choose pics. SO not cool! I can't figure out how to talk to Mr. Blogger either. I am just so confused. HEEELLLLP!
Okie dokie. So, that's what's up. No photos. The flu. No Disney world. (Yet) A home break in. Valentines. And... lots of Lysol and hand wiping! That's what's going on around here.
