Influenza in the Fall


We’re having a quiet weekend. 




It was supposed to be very busy.

We had a 50th Birthday Party to attend. 

We were going to a bonfire… with fireworks! 

After church we were to go to Turkey Run for a hike and dinner with friends.


But, although man plans his steps, the Lord directs his path. 

And He ordained influenza for us this weekend. 


Sophia and Isabella came down with it mid-week.  So far the rest of us are untouched. 

So far.




But just to be sure, we are quarantine-ing ourselves.

And now that the fevers seem to be broken for good, the girls are more content.  Weak and pale, but more content.

Here’s what they’ve been doing most of the day…




Crowding around the laptop watching old re-runs of Adams-12, which the Worley cousins introduced them to a few months ago.




Today we’re thankful for Tylenol, and inhalers, and Adams-12, and pediatricians who are available at 2:30 am to talk over the phone to a worried mama.


And let’s not forget the cinnamon pull-apart bread..

    1. Hi Beth Ann!

      The pull apart bread was delicious! It disappeared and everyone wanted me to make more. And you know you are always welcome, and especially if you wanted to bring a beautiful wee girl!
      Love you, Cousin!
