That is always my biggest worry...that it will travel amongst the family. Ugh. And with David always working at the hospital I am convince he is always going to bring some funky bug home.

Poor Arlo, so sorry she's sick. (Wow, Hannah, she looks so big to me here.) I remember the last time our whole house was sick. I stayed healthy long enough to spend the day getting the others hydrated, comfortable, and under control. That night, after everyone finally fell asleep, I finally got it, but I kept thinking how amazing it was I stayed healthy in order to help everyone else out. Weird how I just remembered that whole story. Hope your turns out much better. xo

Oh, yes. My Eliot was struck yesterday. Mr. Lethargic. And today I'm feeling a little achey. Lotta good that flu shot did. Fingers crossed for the house of Huffmaina.

Just passed it along to my daughter on Saturday after fighting with the intestinal portion for 10 days. She's on day four- seemed better all morning and then another wave hit. This sucks! It's not just a short flu, it's the splendid "10 day flu." Lucky us. Good lucky to you all.
