The Swine Flu will hopefully not be seen at our home ever again. Kaidence is the only one that got the darn bug (knocking on wood of course). Monday was when it started, and quickly at that. Tuesday was another day full of vomiting, high fevers 103-104.7, shakes, coughing.....all the good stuff. Tuesday night was.....LOOOOOOONG to say the least. That was a rough night for her and seems to be when everything really peeked. Wednesday the vomiting decreased greatly and so did the fevers. When she got them they were still high, but she only had two that day (compared to non-stop the days before) and they were manageable with Tylenol for once. All of these days she just layed and cried, while pointing to her little forehead. It hurt. We returned to the Pediatrician's office Wednesday to check her lungs for pneumonia and they were very pleased with how well she had done. Everything sounded great. Wednesday afternoon was her last fever and she has not had one since. It took a couple of days past that to get over the headache and work her feeds back up to full, but we are getting there. Just as quickly as the illness came on, it left. But it sure did a good job of wiping her out. However, Kaidence is dancing all over the house today & asking for candy. This little thing is always dancing through the house. I am amazed that she did so well. I almost cried when the doctor told me she had H1N1. I think that getting the Tamiflu in her system so quickly after the fevers started played a huge part in that, even though it made her stomach sicker. Thank You for all you prayers, we know that plays the biggest role of all.

Hopefully we can all stay well and my cute little stinker boys will keep healthy. We still need the second doses of the H1N1 vaccine for all the kids, maybe next week if her cath goes well. Her cath has been rescheduled sooner than we thought possible, because of how quickly she got over her illness. It is for this Thursday morning. Wish us luck and please keep Kaidence in your prayers next Thursday!
