Week Two in the Pigpen

Today marks the beginning of the second week that we've been battling the swine flu virus in our home. Andy has been the hardest hit and is taking an antibiotic for pneumonia. He has been responding well to the medication but woke up this morning with a fever, so we'll be taking him to see his doctor a little later this morning.

Ben and I woke up in the middle of the night with a fever. We thought we had both recovered and were on the mend. I've been advised to go to the public hospital to receive Tamiflu in case this is just the beginning of this particular virus for me. I was the first one sick but it may have been with a different illness, as this is the first time I've had a fever. The kids' doctor wants to see Ben as well this morning.

Jonah still has a cough but is impressive in his ability to ignore the virus and continue to function well. John has still not been affected and has been playing nurse to the rest of us.

This is an aggressive but erratic illness and we continue to ask for your prayers that our family will recover soon.


  1. Thank you for the update (and recommendation, John). We continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Love & prayers to yall. It woud be a pleasure to pray for your healing.
