From us over here! Yes, me and Hunter both - in bed, with you know what.... The doc thinks it hit him because he was so sick from the Tick bite fever and me because of last week's stress. They do not even test here anymore, they just diagnose by symptoms and treat immediately to try and stop the spread as soon as possible. Off course, our biggest concern is the kids. In South Africa they do not give kids Tamiflu as a prophylaxis as per the newest research where it was shown that the side effects are really bad. So we are checking their temperature 3 times daily. Little man C has a caugh, but we spent Saturday at friends that has a cat. so it can be expected. We are keeping a close eye on him.We have hired our nanny to stay with us and look after the kids for the next 3 days until we are not able to infect them any more. I have no idea what we would have done without her. My mom also comes in to help to cook food etc. Staying away from the kids is off course so tough. It breaks my heart.
I was so hoping to get back to regular blogging, but maybe, as the day and week goes on, I will feel better and get some blogging (and reading - I am so behind) done.
Playing along with Debi as per usual.
We do not often get MacDonald's (yes, we have them in the deepest dark Africa) - frankly, our South African "Steers", although more expensive, has much better burgers. But The Little Miss kept asking, and two weekends ago , The Boys had their first Happy Meals - check our the happy faces.
And not to be left out - the happiest of them all.
