germs germs go away! *updated*

Well, the nasty sickness hit our home and it began with me. Apparently I had the flu over the weekend. If you remember, I have hardly ventured out, so I have no clue how I got it. But I do know that my immune system could be weakened due to lack of sleep with the new baby and all. But I went to the doctor today as it is now all stuck in my chest. I still felt bad and I have a ton to get done around the house. Remember, the packers are supposed to come tomorrow. We are supposed to be moving tomorrow evening. On Sunday we started to think I had the flu and we started calling family. My mom is in Colorado helping with Miss Ava. She is always the first pick because she is retired and that is what retired nana's are for. But my dad showed up Monday morning to help with the boys. Jeremy needed to be at work these last few days to tie up lose ends. A few hours after my dad showed up, Jeremy's sister Brandy came to help. And she has been here ever since. That enabled my dad to go back home and get back to work. 2 family members came from the Dallas area to help us. They drove and came to stay in my germ infested house, so my babies wouldn't catch this flu. This week has reminded me of why I am glad to be moving. It will just be nice to have help close by in times like these. Anyways, today I went to the doctor. He told me I HAD the flu. Past tense. But then he put me on an antibiotic to get me on my feet fast. Paxton had started coughing and had a fever last night. I was immediately worried. Kind of hopeful that he might be in the clear because he had 2 month vaccinations yesterday. I thought maybe this could just be side effects of his shots. But he was tested today and sure enough his mean ole' momma gave him the flu. My sweet doctor gave me the news and I was heartbroken and just started crying. Boy I am going to miss our pediatrician! And I wonder if it's just a matter of time before Jeremy or Holden come down with it all. Such a mess. And such bad timing for us. Jeremy has tried to get in contact with the packers to push them off until Friday. We haven't heard back yet. But we are definitely not ready to be packed up. And the saddest of all is just the way we have spent our last days here. Not playing with our friends that we will dearly miss. But rather quarantined to our home out of fear of spreading this stuff. So join me in my little pitty party. I just wanted to be able to really say goodbye to people. On the upside, it might be a whole lot less emotional this way. But still, not what I was planning for. I don't know that I've ever posted such a complaining and whiney post. But here you go. Say a little prayer for Paxton, that the Tamiflu will help him to recover quickly. And that the other 2 boys will stay healthy. Brandy is still here helping and so we are praying that we don't infect her also. But now I am able to deal with Pax since we have both had the mess. I know this stuff is little in the grand scheme of life . . . but say a little prayer for us if you think about it. Thanks friends!

*Packers are still coming tomorrow at 8am. Lovely, isn't it? And Holden has caught the bug and is starting tamiflu tonight. It will be a blasted miracle if Jeremy and Brandy don't get it. Please say a prayer for them both.*

Oh Melodie! I'm SO sorry. That totally stinks! You have every right to complain. Let it all out. We will be praying that the movers will be able to reschedule and that you all get to feeling better REALLY soon. I wish we were there to help. Love ya.

I'm so sorry this nasty flu has hit your home. And I'm so bummed that we didn't get our playdate. :-( Give those sweet boys a squeeze for me. I'm going to miss you! Praying for you and yours.

I would totally whine too! No one wants the flu, especially for their babies, and especially NOT during a move! A momma does not have time for that! Prayers for you all!

Ahh man! This is awful! I am so sad for you guys and I totally understand your pitty party...although I only think it qualifies as a pity party if is not warranted...and girl, this is CRAPPY! Bless your heart! I was so badly wanting to see you guys, but we are busy packing too and haven't had much spare time it seems! I've got stuff for you and for Pax, so I will just mail it! BEANS! Saying prayers for all of you! LOVE you guys so much!

Praying right now! You should have Jeremy take Emergen-C. I hear it's a great boost for the immune and may help him skip it. They have a kids one too, but it's for kids 2 and older. I have just heard good things about it. And yes, complain on my friend. You are entitled! You are a mommy of two under two and you and your infant have the flu and you are supposed to be moving to a new state tomorrow! Oh my, I was just reminded to pray some more!
