Still got it...

(I need to first say that all 5 of us came down with the same thing Friday night.) Sorry to say that I don't have much else to post about right now. We have all had fluctuating fevers today and hubby's cough is just getting worse. He has had bronchitis probably 3 or 4 times in a year, so when he gets sick it usually causes it to come back and with a great deal of pain. I praise the Lord that the Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen seem to be working for the children to get their temps down (at least for a while). I have been having cold sweats at night and feel pretty bad, but trying my best to suppress the symptoms so I can take care of the other 4. Hubby is getting ready to head to the doctor once again. I pray that he can do something to help my Beloved. Hubby did some reading online today and we think we may have the flu. I never would have guessed it because I always thought of the flue including vomiting and diarrhea. But I guess those typically aren't symptoms for all types of Flu. But we have the headaches, congestion, cough, fevers of 102, achy bodies, and Big T complains about his ear hurting sometimes. So...I am off to make sure the children are getting enough to eat, then it is off to Mama and Papa's bed to watch a tape as Beloved goes to the doctor. Blessings to all!

Melanie, I am so sorry you are all sick again. THat sounds like some nasty stuff. I will pray that you are all well soon. I will email you about a brew my friend makes that seems to help get rid of stuff.
