The flu, so far, has only reached myself and Carter. I'm better! Carter is on the mend. He threw up yesterday evening. If he makes it through the night, I'd say we're good! I'd have to say this is the 'best' stomach flu we've ever had (if you have to have the flu). It may be about five days long, but it's very mild. It really hasn't been that bad.
He's slept on the couch most of the week, getting up to play when he felt energized enough. I've spent a total of six nights in the recliner, myself. I'm looking forward to my own bed!
Poor little man, he looks like he has hollow eyes. He's only been drinking fluids and eating soda crackers all week. His appetite is back today, so it's looking good.
I'm hoping so... as a good friend's mother passed away last night, and we will be going to see the family in a couple of days. Mark spent many days there as a child and this particular friend was also one of the groomsmen in our wedding. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband and children, and all of her extended family and loved ones at this time. She had been ill with cancer, and her passing is a blessing as she was ready to go, but still so sad for all of those whom she has left behind... Our hearts go out to each of you. She was yet so young but what a comfort that her battle on earth is over!
