Our house turned into a pig sty at the end of September. Madison woke up with a sore throat on a Thursday, by Thursday night she was running a low-grade fever, and by Friday morning her fever was up to 102.8. Corey stayed home with her and took her to the doctor Friday afternoon. Dr. Martindale told Madison "Congratulations, you have the swine flu!"
He suggested we try to keep the boys away from her as much as possible. So, we packed up the boys stuff and off to Gram's house they went. They spent the night with Gram & Pop on Friday night and then spent the day with Mamaw and Papaw. On Saturday night, my mom called to tell me that Jackson was now running fever. Luckily, Cason was still feeling fine and had no fever. I went and picked up Jackson from Mamaw and Papaw's, and decided to go ahead and take Cason too. He had been with Jackson all day; if he was going to get it there wasn't anything I could do about it.
Madison and Jackson both ran fever for the next 4 days! They felt okay in the morning, but by the afternoon they were wiped out. They finally went back to school on Thursday. Thankfully, Cason never got it! I told him he was too mean to get sick.
The playroom was converted into an infirmary.
