We are being invaded... by germs!

Last weekend was filled with homecoming events! Johnny had lots of fun at the football game on Friday night! Obviously the school colors are red and white!

Saturday evening was the homecoming dance!

Last Sunday the germ invasion started. By Tuesday he was quite sick...


The sw*ne flu has hit our home. Johnny has been sick for over a week and it has now turned into pneumonia. It is so hard for him to miss school. We were hoping he would turn the corner but every time we think he might be getting better he spikes a fever. He now has a ton of homework and tests to make up, so even if he rallies for the school day he could never be caught up and ready to go with his classes. It is a different story in high school- there is not much sympathy for absences.

I would love to homeschool this boy but he will have no part of it. He loves his school and it does seem to be a fit for him!

I took Johnny to the Doctor's office this morning. It was filled with sick waiting people, everyone is in masks and hand wash is everywhere. It felt so germy- we waited in the car until it was our turn to be seen. 

Hubby and I are waiting for the evil virus to attack us. We keep asking each other "how do you feel?" I will be amazed if we can get by without it attacking another family member. The girls have had their flu shot but not their sw*ne flu shot. We are hoping and praying for Johnny to get better and for the rest of us to avoid this illness. Tomorrow is Johnny's 16th birthday. He is supposed to have balloons and candy delivered to his locker. He has a conference soccer game after school and then had planned to go to the Viking/Packer game. We are just going to have to play it by ear... but I'm not feeling too hopeful. Poor guy...

Oh my gracious! That sounds horrible!! We will start praying for him right now!


And his picture in his blue shirt - what a stud muffin!!


I pray he has a super speedy recovery - it's just plain illegal to be sick on your 16th birthday!! On my 16th, my friends had all kinds of fun things planned and there was a horrible 6 foot snow blizzard and schools were closed. I was so bummed, I cried and cried. 16th are just supposed to be the best!!

Praying from Colorado! xo

Oh and I'll also pray for protection over you guys to not get it!

Oh, poor guy! It's bad enough to be sick, but even worse to be sick on your birthday! Praying he feels better soon (and stays well) and that his teachers have mercy on him and work with him getting his work done. Praying the rest of you stay healthy.

Jean, I am so sorry. I know he is in good hands with a nurse for a mom and all the prayers everyone is praying. I am praying for recovery and good health for all!
