The 2005 Flu Epidemic

It all started last Wednesday when after a fairly normal evening, Ian threw up all over me. Jeremy and I took turns holding him most of the night--the retching subsided after a few hours, but he remained restless. The bug turned out to be VERY contagious. I got it by Friday, along with both his teachers and 3 of his 5 classmates. Ian was just recovering when he got knocked down by a fever, cough, and congestion. Every time it seemed he was getting better, he'd have another bad day. Then, Jeremy got the fever. Here Jeremy and Ian are on Tuesday.

This is how they spent most of the day.

Typically, Ian is in motion unless he's asleep, but here our usually energetic little boy could barely even be coaxed to watch his favorite Baby Einstein DVD (a present from Aunt Starin and Uncle Jay).

Fortunately, Ian is recovering as quickly as he took sick.

Here he is tonight, enjoying his first shower!

Now, let's hope his dad gets better just as quickly.
