Today's Delaney's last day of second grade. She was so excited that this week was coming! Our school has day camp type activities all week, singing songs together, reading in tents in the classroom, writing camp letters, hanging out with friends. But here she is, lying in bed for the second day in a row! Poor thing, she has the flu. She doesn't have a bad fever, but is weak from being sick & not eating much of anything since Tuesday. She came home sick that day & we headed to the doctor when she complained of problems breathing. It's no surprise around Portland lately to have breathing problems, we've got a lot of pollen and tree fluff in the area around here. So I thought she was just having some sort of asthma problem. I've got it, so I guess it's my fault! :) The doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong and did a bunch of tests and an x-ray. In the end, she did a flu test and guess what, she's got Influenza A....could be related to the swine flu, they say. But we won't know that for sure until after the weekend when the test comes back. She has only had a low fever, 99 or 100, but I guess that's enough. The doctor said it could go away anytime and she's fine to go about normal activities as soon as her fever's gone. So here we are waiting....hoping that no one else around here gets it!
So go ahead, enjoy your Friday...we wish we were! :(
