Not SWOON-ing

SWINE-ing. That's what our doctor told us yesterday afternoon when I brought my patient in. Liquids, liquids, liquids. He also said that. Then he sent me home for the rest of the kids and ordered them back to the office for the vaccine.
It went something like this: "Hey! I'm home! Did you guys have a good day at school? Great! Now let's hop back in the car everyone, and go get shots!" Good times.
I wasn't really surprised; trumpetboy had complained of a sore throat and was up at night coughing for about a week. He stayed home from church Sunday, and stopped caring about what we were having for dinner. When, in an attempt to help organize his room on Monday, I showed him the shoe organizer I bought for his door and asked "do you know what this is?" his response was "A blanket?" I started having my suspicions...
In the spirit of wringing every ounce of fun out of something dreary, he colored his mask to augment the startle effect. Might as well; he's in for five days of solitary confinement.

And this continues to be my very good friend.

Poor guy! I hope he gets better soon, and keeps it to himself.

What a bummer. Thank goodness for Lysol.

I can't believe you got your shots that quickly. Ours are all out before they even post the sign they have them. Was it safe to give them the shot if they've already been exposed?

So sorry Adam, feel better soon!

One man's shoe organizer is another man's blanket.

Thanks for the Lysol tip. I hadn't seen the flu label... I'll be grabbing some.
Did you get the DVD I left at Rachael's on Sunday? I left it on the doorknob after church.

Well wishes!

Feel better Adam, love the mask AND the blanket. :)

Sorry Adam is sick but glad the rest of the kiddos got their shots. Did you get yours?

That's too bad for Adam. We have a very limited supply of shots available down here. I haven't been able to get one yet, even though I'm pregnant.
