The first thing I heard when I got up was Ryan telling me that Matthew(7) was sick. 

I could literally feel my head puff up as it filled with dread.  I replied with, Oh please, please, please say he’s not throwing up.

No, it’s a fever and headache. With a mild cough.
Whew!  I can handle that.

I asked Ryan if he was acting normal or being whiny about it.  It was a silly question that I already knew the answer to.  Matthew is his father’s son.  When a cold or flu gets him down, he’s completely down.
Tylenol and Motrin are on today’s menu.

RSV is making the rounds at our church.  I didn’t take Lucy to church on Sunday and won’t be taking her this week either.  However, there is a small concern that what Matthew has now is that same virus.  Lucy’s not likely to get anything.  Thank the Lord for my ability to produce a more than ample supply of milk for her.  Most likely, through my nursing her, she’s already got all the immunities she needs to keep from getting sick.

Still, this is RSV we’re talking about and a little prayer might be in order.  RSV can be dangerous for babies.  My friend’s preemie got very sick with RSV last year and it was scary.  Lucy’s not a preemie, but she is under 6 weeks old.   

Prayfully this bug is short lived and mild. 
In a family of 10 even the mildest of bugs can seem to drag on forever.

Which is why I’m so glad nobody is throwing up.
