On the cover of the Rolling Stone...

Extra, extra...

Felicia has missed days of work now and has been throwing up and sitting on the toilet for the last two days. Micah's nose is still a running ooze of snot and I'm feeling like death warmed over.

This is one of the worst bugs I've experienced in a long time. Every time I think I'm on the down side of this thing it rears it's ugly head and pulls me right back in.

We'll be back. I hope...

I can sympathize completely. Hope you all get to feeling better soon.

Dirk, it may not make you feel any better, but this is the worst "cold" I think ANYBODY has seen in a long time. It's kicking asses & taking names no matter who it strikes, and it's striking everywhere. And it seems that it's not even enough to be counted as the flu.... It seems there are 2 different cold viruses going around the "starts in the sinus & turns into pneumonia" type, and the "feels like the flu" type. Neither one is something a person wants to be struck down with. But, it's like this is some super-bug, or something. Definitely enough to make one wonder about how badly we WOULD fall to bird-flu.

Sorry to hear y'all are still feeling so poorly. I hope you & Felicia see a serious turn for the better very soon. In the mean time, take it easy!!!! Y'all don't want any setbacks by doing too much too soon, with this thing.

What you guys need is a weekend of really warm weather so you can open all the windows and blow all the sick air out and bring in the fresh air.

Hope you're all better today.

This stuff is going around BAD. Our school sent 60 kids home in a single week in January with the "Erupt at both ends at the same time" bug.
It is going around and it is NASTY.

Good luck with the recovery. Having sick tiny ones is so damned hard the parents.

We are finally starting to turn the corner with this thing. Micah is returning to his joyful self and Felicia is nearly one hundred percent.

I can't remember a bug so tenacious. It just does not want to go away....

It's been one rough bug , alright. Tom never misses work and he was out about 5 days total. For us , you have a day where you think it's all over and then the next day it's worse than before. Then , you feel better and WHAM , all over again. Took us about 2 weeks each to finally shake it. Now we're playing major catch-up on all the things we neglected during downtime. Hope you all are 100% real soon.
