Just wanted to petition a few prayers out there. Jade came home yesterday and was suddenly very sick with flu symptoms. It came on so fast. Brinley woke up this morning with a fever, up to 102, and so off to Primary hospital we went. She got the flu test and we will find out tomorrow. In the meantime, they gave her the IV chemo that was supposed to be Thursday so we don't have to go back. All other chemo is on hold until her fever is gone. We are not starting steroids yet until she is better. Thankfully, her counts are good, so we are not in-patient. They are pretty sure it is H1N1, so she is on the Tamiflu (holy $$$!). Our oncologist was nice enough to write a prescription for Jade too so I didn't have to take her in. I am trying not to worry, but how could I not? With Brinley in the "high risk" category, well, you know. And poor Jade is so sick.


Oh, how sweet is this - the tamiflu apparently is not very good. So of course, Brinley sucked it down with a sour look on her face, but did it quickly. Jade is not quite so used to downing yucky medicine, and so we were having a very hard time, lots of tears. Brinley came up to me with her big brown eyes and said "I'll take it for her." Brinley was willing to take the yucky medicine for her sister. I think that is the sweetest thing ever.

Anyhow, I'll update tomorrow, but please give my girls a few prayers. And pray that the rest of us will stay healthy, especially Mylee. Thanks!

Brinley's comment is so cute!

I am sorry to hear you guys are sick. You are in our prayers and I hope that both girls feel better quickly and that everyone else stays well.

I hope you made it through the night without anyone else (especially Brinley) getting sick. That is so sweet that she was willing to take Jade's medicine. She is a tough little girl. I hope your family will do Ok with this and get it over quickly. Did the doctor say how long it takes to come down with it after being exposed?
My prayers are with all of you!
Love, mom

I am so sorry to hear that Kristin. Tanner is the same way - I am pretty sure he has it too but I'm taking him in today. He's been really sick since Sunday - it's ruthless. Josh has something but he doesn't seem as bad as Tanner. And it's weird because I got Tanner vaccinated - he got the nose spray - so I wonder if it worked or what. Anyway - I hope the rest of you can stay healthy. Did you guys get the shots too? I hope Brinley and Jade get better soon. Hang in there.
