First time with the flu.

We survived our first bout with the stomach flu! Whopper Jr. was just not feeling well on Thursday. About 15 minutes after breakfast, it all came back up. (insert gagging face here) She didn't even cry - just said "Uh oh!" Three loads of laundry, four more times throwing up and three baths filled up our day. Luckily she slept all night through. Whopper was fine on Thursday but on Friday he had a low fever and instead of throwing up, was busy with the other end. Poor little guy. His fever lasted until Saturday morning but by Sunday they were both back to normal. Yay it is over!!! I am crossing my fingers that we will be healthy for awhile.

On a sad note, President Hinckley passed away last night. I was not surprised considering his age and I am happy that he is reunited with his wife but I am still sad. Pres. Hinckley had a special place in my heart. He has been the prophet since I was a teenager and he was the first one that I really felt like I knew. I will miss him.

Sorry to hear about the flu, but glad you are all feeling better. I remember the first time Alana threw up (I don't mean baby throw-up, I mean the real deal). I had just commented that day on how she hadn't ever really gotten sick and then she was sitting on the kitchen counter and I was trying to give her some cough medicine and then puke, out like a geyser. I don't handle puke well, and Ryan had to clean it up!

Oh Man! Yeah - this was the real deal too. And I had just given her some Tylenol because I knew she wasn't feeling well.
