Well, the swine flu has been the name of the game in our house this past week. And, speaking as one who previously scoffed at those who wore masks for protection and freaked out about the "pandemic," let me just say... Be afraid of the swine flu! Be very afraid! I would have worn a mask for an entire year if it could have prevented the sickness in this house this week. Mask-wearers, you have my full blessing! :)

I'll spare you all the details, but let me just say that the past 6 days have been really rough. And let me also say a giant thank you to all of you who prayed for my sweet little former-preemie as he struggled with this nasty bug. I was so scared for him, but he pulled through like a champ. I am still concerned about the bad cough that he's left with, and I would really, really appreciate continued prayers that this clears up and does not settle into his lungs.

I am beyond thankful for Eric, who took care of Eli and I through all of this. It is tough stuff taking care of a sick kid when you're sick yourself. I'm so grateful for a husband who did everything around here for the past week!

So, in conclusion, don't catch the swine flu. I don't really recommend it. :)
