Not Croup.... THE FLU!!!

Dr. Darby has misdiagnosed her daughter with croup. Croup would be good, well not good, but around here I'd take anything over the flu... and guess what we have... the FLU! We took Morgan to the ped this evening after battling 104 fever for 36 hours. The swab only took seconds to test positive. The dr offered Paige a prescription just in case, I told her she had her flu shot and was feeling great.... well we came home to sick Paige and a 101 fever.... I called back for the RX and sure enough all I could get was the answering service... I guess we'll be back in the morning! Thank you all for your prayers... they are much needed. Especially for this pregnant tired mama not to get it!! Love y'all!

Oh no! The poor Stickler family!!! The flu has been going around Chicago and has been awful. Luckily we have avoided it so far...

I hope that Morgan and Paige start to feel better soon, and that you and Justin stay healthy.

We've all had the flu and it's NO FUN!! But if you can start taking Tamiflu or something like it in the first 48 hours it will make an immediate difference. Towns was feeling much better after she started taking it. And you better get a RX for it too, you definitely don't need to be sick right now! Just ask Dr. McClendon if you need anything else...after 8 days of it around my house, I think I'm an expert!! Hope y'all have a speedy recovery!
