The Twins Are Home Today

Last week Amaya started with a headache followed by a sore throat and high temperature. I was sure she had strep but the Dr. tested her for the flu and she came out positive for influenza A. I was pretty much warned right then that we were all going to have it.

Last weekend Chris came down with it (he still does not look good), I got it but not bad (I told Chris it's because I don't eat meat now). I expected Paige to get it but I was hoping Jaxson wouldn't because he was the only one that got a flu shot. Jaxson just happened to have a checkup when it was flu shot time and the Dr. talked me into him getting one.

Yesterday Jaxson's school called and said he now had a temp and then last night I noticed Paige had the high temp.

So today the twins are home being sick together. Even though they look pitiful they are too stinkin cute. When the medicine is kicked in they get so silly for about an hour but then they crash together.

The flu shot only covers a specific strain of Influenza A, and Influenza B. If you catch a different strain, the shot is useless. The scientists guess at which strain will be most prevalent that year.

Now that you've all had Influenza A, your bodies will be more resistant to the flu than if you had gotten the shot.

We've all had Influenza A and I homeschool. My son's endocrinologist said it is ok that we don't get the vaccine.

Hope you all feel better soon!

So sorry that your little ones aren't feeling well. I suppose the only blessing is that they have a partner to snuggle with when the medicine wears off. :) Praying things get better soon...
