Question: What did Mariah get for Halloween?

All 3 girls have had slight runny noses and general malaise all week, but all 3 were feeling fairly good on Friday. Nana took them to the Halloween Dance @ school, and they danced and lived it up, had a great time.

But Saturday morning Mariah woke up vomitting, and had a horrible hacking cough. But I was sure she'd be better by trick-or-treating time...she slept all day and drank lots of water.

By evening though, she only felt worse and had a fever of 105.

Sunday morning I decided she definately had some kind of flu, but I called the doctor to see how I could tell if it was swine flu and what I'm supposed to do about it. She told me that their offices are full of people with flu, and all of it is Swine, none of it is seasonal. But she told me to treat it as if it was, and Mariah should feel better in 5 days or so. As long as she's hydrated, she'll be ok.

So we made her a little make-shift hospital bed on the couch. We've watched a lot of the Sprout channel on tv, and she has slept 80% of the day. I feel so bad to look at her, she is really really sick. My heart breaks, she look so sick and feeble.




This is about all that's gone into her mouth for the past 48 hours:



And this is the only interacting she's done in the past 48 hours:


She managed to sit up for about 5 minutes today. I miss her smile, it seems like so long since I've seen it. Arissa goes "wow, she must really be sick. She won't even laugh!".


Please keep her in your prayers. I'm sure she'll be just fine but she is really suffering through it in the meantime. And the rest of us could use your prayers too....because it's pretty impossible to quarantine her in a house this small w/ 4 other people sharing the space. So I'm hoping & praying and crossing my fingers that A&M (and me & Jesse) don't catch it next.


Sidenote: All 5 of us have had the seasonal flu shot. Jesse has had his Swine Flu shot, all 3 girls have had the first part of their Swine Flu nasal mist, and are due for the booster later this month. So how this nasty virus got ahold of sweet Mariah, I don't know.
