Well, my poor baby really is sick! Macy started coughing again yesterday and developed a fever last night. I decided I'd better get her to the doctor today and just nip whatever she had in the butt. After an hour and a half wait, and a simple swab of snot, we discovered Macy has Type A Influenza! She even had a flu shot in November! Dr. Harper said this was the first case of the flu he'd seen with a patient who had the shot. I was watching the news tonight though, and they were saying this year's flu shot has only been 40% effective! So Macy is on Tamiflu now, and the doctor prescribed some for me too, because he seems to think it's inevitable that I get it too. I'm praying that I can escape, but thanks to a great doc. for thinking ahead. So I've spent the day cleaning the house and washing sheets, towels, rugs, blankets, and everything anybody has touched. Payte went into the doctor on Friday and they just gave him meds for a cough. He's had a fever too though, so who knows what's going on there. Anyways, everyone pray that you can stay healthy during this yucky season! Good Luck!
