Yep, it got us. It all started Tuesday before Christmas when Elijah spiked a 104.2 temp. He slept most of the day and was pretty lifeless. Wednesday his temp was down to 102 and he was back to normal. By Friday he was better. Glad for the H1N1 shot. Sarah decided to wait until everything was closed on Thursday to have green drainage with red eyes. Yep, pinkeye. Oh the fun. But the fun was just beginning. By the time Santa had made his stop and had the toys set up, Mommy had a 103 temp. It is NEVER good for mommy to be sick. I kept my head up long enough on Christmas morning to see the gift opening, then I slept the day away. We were to return home on Sat, but with a 102 temp, I just was not able. We came home today and lets just say it was a long trip home. I hurt all over and now I have enough mucus to drown in. My Mom also got the flu, so Doug had it all by himself on Christmas! I really wished I had made the time to get the H1N1 vaccine. I got the flu, but I have been sick and could not get the vaccine until last week and I was just too busy. If you have not gotten the vaccine, GET IT ASAP!!!!! I will update on our Christmas fun later. We still have Christmas with Doug's family this weekend, so the fun is not over yet.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
