We were so worried about the ‘coming swine flu pandemic’, so we were hyper-vigilent with the girls around anyone who even remotely seemed sick. And despite all our precautions, by the end of December 2009, we ALL got it!
What a fun fest that was.
The girls’ fevers shot up to 103 degrees and over, at which point I took them to the pediatrician. They had chills, fever, the shakes, no appetite, and it was rough getting those fevers down! They spiked in the middle of the night, so no one got much sleep.
The girls were miserable for about a week, and then they started recovering. But not before passing it on to me, and I lovingly extended the gesture to my husband.
But afterwards, we all breathed a sigh of relief that now we didn’t have to worry about it anymore.
