H1N1 here we come!

So it would seem that Anna has a case of the swine flu. She has been tired for a couple of days and last night she complained of her legs and arm being "achy". I took her temp last night and it was 101.3 so we started in with the ibuprofen and tylenol to try and keep her comfy. I got up last night to make sure she didn't miss a dose and by this morning she looked fine. I thought maybe I had been a little too quick to call it the flu, but as the day goes on I can see I was right the first time. As the morning progressed she went from perky and happy to tired and wiped out. By the time I took her temp at 10:45 it was up to 103.3 and it hasn't gotten below 101.2 since then. Poor kiddo. Right now we're alternating Ibuprofen and Tylenol every 3 hours and she's drinking really well, so there's nothing else we can really do right now. I guess we'll just start watching movies and see how many we get through by the time we've passed it around to everyone! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the twins don't get it, or if they do that it is at least after Vivi's surgery next Tuesday for her ear tubes. I've been so anxious to have this surgery over with that it would be pretty hard to take if we had to postpone it.
