Flu Not Welcome Here!

Just a quick update on my sickies.  Tyler went to the doctor yesterday and he tested positive for influenza. :(  We were pretty sure that was what Keeler had as well but his doctor was out of swabs.  So as my boys continue to rest, cough and complain I continue to Lysol everything, wash my hands like a crazy person and try to maintain my sanity.  I'm not going to lie - I lost it a couple of times yesterday.  Most of all my heart aches for them and I hate that they feel so badly.  This flu is no joke people! 
As a working mom our nighttime routine flies by and you just don't realize how loooong a day can be or how hard it is to keep your kid from climbing in the washing joke.  The past couple of days I have counted down the hours until bedtime.  Am I terrible?  
 Last night was actually pretty nice.  After a treadmill run, (I am determined I'm going to sweat out any flu exposure) instead of sleeping upstairs with all the sickies I decided it would be best to sleep down in our guest room.  After going on two nights and about 6 hours sleep I needed this "little vacation."  However, I was awaken by a little boy coughing in the night,  Yes, Kallahan is now sick.  I guess is was inevitable.  I went ahead and called the doctor and was able to get him some medication.   
With medication the little cowboys are able to function and play but their daddy is still not with the living.  We all got the flu shot this year but Tyler's doctor said several are still getting it.  Praying for a speedy recovery.  
Granny came over this morning so that I could get some work done.  She is wonderful.  Now I feel like I can breath again after getting a few things off my to-do list and get back to caring for my sickies - Lysol in hand.  
Sorry for the lame post but linking up for:
I promise, we are typically a lot more lively!
