Flu

is beginning to invade our house. We took Lucas to preschool this morning and he seemed just perfect. I got a phone call from the nurse at 10am that he was running 101.6 fever without them adding to it. Of course I hightailed it to the school to pick him up. We made a pit stop at the doctor's office afterwards. After some tests they determined it's the flu. He hadn't shown any symptoms that I had noticed so I was greatly shocked. I asked him if there were any other symptoms I could expect. Dr. Henry said that sometimes there is vomit but not always. After a quick prayer upwards that we wouldn't be dealing with that...Lucas starts throwing up. OH YUCK!!!

The doctor said it will take between 7-10 days for it to fully run it's course and that he shouldn't return to the preschool until next Wednesday at the earliest. Goodness gracious that's a long time. Thankfully, Jon & I have super flexible schedules since we work for Dad. I think that we will be switching out who stays home with him for the next two days and then we will see next week. I hope that Jon & I don't get it!! We have not had the flu shot in our house. I'm full of regrets over that now.

Keep my puny little one in your thoughts...he's pitiful!

I hope that we don't either! My stomach is pretty nauseated this morning. Jon stayed home with Lucas this morning so I could finish payroll and he is already complaining about not feeling well either. Fingers crossed?!
