Cancelled Party

Oh Y'all......our sweet little Birthday girl.....Miss Mylee Jo, has the FLU!

Bless her heart!  Her big 5 year old party was scheduled for tonight and it has now been
canceled.  I knew something was up with her...

She and I went to town this morning and we made a stop at the Target store....while shopping in the TOY department, she suddenly said: "Sugar, I'm ready to go home!"   I knew something was wrong immediately.  We came home and when I took her temperature, it clearly said FEVER.

The only way she knew to explain her headache to me was by saying "I have a brain freeze!"
She has had those before while eating snow cones and she knows they hurt really bad.

My heart was breaking for her.  The bad thing is, Motrin just was not doing a great job at bringing the fever down.  Shanda took her to the doctor and the FLU was the verdict.  They gave her some Tamiflu, so hopefully this will help her feel better real soon.

As for the Birthday Party.....It will be rescheduled for a later date.  Mylee was a little disappointed, but she was really too sick to get upset about it.

Strange thing is, that earlier this morning she didn't seem to be sick at all.  As a matter of fact, she and I shared a medium orange juice at McDonald's.  She played about 10 minutes in the play section and then we left and drove straight to Target...(about 3 minutes away)

Strange how fast fever can come on and make a little one feel so rotten....

I'm just hoping that the Flu bug hasn't found it's way into my system!!

Maybe next week I can post pictures of a FUN BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR OUR LITTLE PRINCESS!!

Enjoy your weekend...

Well, I had my Princess 4 days this week because she had the flu and it was exactly like you said. She was fine one minute last weekend and the next she was a sick cookie. None of the rest of us has gotten it and hopefully it will stay that way.

Hoping things are going well for you.

Poor little thing, I am so sorry, Shug! When Phil recently had the flu, our doctor said that anyone who lives with the victim or cares for them needs to have a Tamiflu prescription on hand, it needs to be taken withing 48 hours. I hope you can call it and get a prescription.
