Is it the FLU?

Sicky McSickerson....
Happier times...

And so it begins. Last week my oldest stepdaughter Kalei had a fever. Not so surprising now that school is back in session, she tends to catch everything. She missed the entire first week of school earlier in the month.

Her younger sister Alissa developed the fever at school this morning and the clinic sent her home. She is always the healthy one. Her immune system is above average.

Headaches, upset tummies, chills, fever.

Oh crap.

Well, we decided to take advantage of our one option to save little man from the dreaded bug.

We sent them to their Mom's house. It was such a sweet phone call too.. "they're sick, come and get 'em."

I felt terrible, but we know rightfully, that we have to do everything we can to keep V from any exposure. Still, I feel like the bad Mommy.

So we're down by 2 until we know they're not infectious.. it could be a while.

  1. Bless their hearts...but I was thinking the same thing...Disinfect, disinfect, disinfect!!! What a germophobe I've become.

    Sending lots of virtual snuggles to the girls and hoping they're on the mend soon!
