H1N1 - Hits our House...



It's official. We are quarantined. Quarterback has a 104.5 temperature and is very lethargic. So far Tight End, Receiver and myself are H1N1 free but still. No chances. Just thought I should give you all a reminder of things to do to make sure this does not happen to you or your family.

◘ Lysol or Clorox wipe your whole house. This includes door handles, toilet handles, railings, cupboard knobs, and faucet handles.

◘ You should also keep Lysol wipes in your purse and wipe down carts as well as door handles to the car. The virus is airborne for 48 hours.

◘ Lots of fluids and keep the temperature in your house at 70 or above to provide adequate humidity.

◘ Take it easy.

◘ Apparently, rent LOTS of movies, books, games and catch up on blogs while you have 1 down for the whole week.

Thanks for your prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family! Hunter was diagnosed with the swine flue last Friday after waking up with 104 fever! He made a speedy recovery...and I hope Quarterback does too!

Oh man! I hope Quarterback gets well soon and that none of the rest of you get it. Kyle was exposed to it and since I am a heart patient, he is with his dad until we make sure he didn't get it.

Aw...poor little fella :(

I'm surprised we haven't gotten that yet. Some kid at Dan's work tested positive for it...but we haven't seen any syptoms at home. Take care...I hope he recovers quickly and no one else gets sick. Hope he enjoy watching some good movies while he's home.

We're in the same boat. 3/4 of us have it, though so far it seems pretty mild compared to what I expected. We'll see.......

Yeah, I think it'll be nice not to have to chop a green pepper for fajitas. Saves time and money, how cool is that?

Hope QB is feeling better now and that his fever is dropping. How's he doing?
