Then the sickness came. Last fall I had to take Hannah in for a check-up and the doctor said she could get a flu shot. Said they had already seen influenza. I shrugged it off and said politely, "No thank you". My kids have never had a flu shot, we were good. Fast forward to the week after Christmas. Hannah got sick. I mean really sick. 103 fever, no energy, headache, no appetite, throwing up. One morning we heard her thudding down the stairs and we ran to her as fast as we could. Luckily she wasn't hurt but she was so dehydrated she had passed out. I took her to the doctor, who took one look at her and said "Influenza". She prescribed Tamiflu for Taylor so his wasn't nearly as bad, but my poor girl was down for a whole week. And she is really tough, so for her to be down, in bed, laying around not eating is not good. Mike and I got flu shots and never got sick. I feel just a bit guilty saying that. Hannah said next fall, she is getting the vaccination.
Then it got cold, snowed, we didn't get a snow day like everyone else and Hannah's birthday came. Her requests this year were long, but I didn't care, a girl only turns a decade old once in her life. So she is getting a family party, a friend party, and lots of hugging in between.
|Hannah got her American Doll and it didn't leave her side for a week.|
