Update on Joy


I just wanted to update you on Joy. We went to the Dr. today and she has the flu...Type A (supposedly the worse of the two kinds going around). Because she developed it over the weekend, she's too far into it for Tamiflu to work, so she has to wait it out. Last night was a rough night with fevers of 102 and 103 degrees. It has also thrown a curve into our testing tomorrow. She will not be able to attend, Dr.'s orders. The Dr. said no way...she's too contagious.

She was around some family yesterday for Easter and we're really hoping they don't get it. They've all be forewarned to get into the doctor for Tamiflu if they develop any symptoms.

Jason will be home with her tomorrow so I can continue on with the testing for our area.

I appreciate your prayers! She will be out of commission for a few days, and hopefully everyone else here will be fine. I guess we should have gotten the flu shot!

I'll be back in a few days! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Tammy, Leah Kate and I prayed for a speedy recovery for Joy and we will continue to keep her in our prayers. She had it when she was 5 - the ONLY year we didn't get the flu shot!

Take care and I'll keep your testing responsibilities in my prayers too.

Hugs,

SO SORRY about Joy. Hopefully she will be better before too long. As far as the flu shot...all three of my grandson's took the flu shot and two of the three had the flu. They said it was a different kind of flu. Who knows!!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I'm so sorry, Tammy, but I'm sure she will be fine.. Just give her time. Poor thing---I feel so terrible. She'll be able to take her test at another time I'm sure.. You wouldn't want her to be tested when she's so sick anyhow.

Bless her heart. Give her a big hug from me. Hope the rest of your family members don't get it.

Hugs and Prayers,
Betsy

Please tell Joy I hope she feels better ASAP. And please don't kick yourslef about the shot. It only can cover so many strains and not all of the ones that were bad this year were in the shot so many got sick even with it. They just don't know ahead of time which ones will attack us.

I look forward to hearing that joy is feeling better soon!

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Tell Joy I hope she gets better soon. I will have all of you in my prayers. Nothing worse than the flu in the springtime.

Take care and please delete if this is a duplicate. Blogger is giving me trouble when I try to post a reply.

It is horrible to have the flu...but especially if you are little and vulnerable!
I hope that it doesn't go any further!

Hope everyone around will be okay.

Loved your post about the nursing home. Many, many years ago I worked in the office of a nursing home. I still have special memories of some of the residents.

Most certainly prayers for Joy. I've had the flu many times and it is no fun. I have not had it since I've been getting the flu shots.

Pam said...

Linda / Behind My Red Door said...

Hi Tammy,

I saw on your comment to Kimberly that Joy is still very sick. I wanted to come over and send her my feel better soon wishes! Please tell her I am praying for her to heal quickly!!

hugs, Linda

Kimberly said...

Hi Tammy, I sure hope Joy is on the mend soon!
Thanks for your encouraging words! Julianna is a tough cookie but the situation still hurts.
And I didn't know if I'd told you before or not but I did homeschool the girls for a year, when Emily was in grade 3 and Julianna in grade 1. Fantastic year and so wonderful for our family... but with the math that was on the horizon, too intimidating for me. Having to learn it myself was bad enough, but to be responsible to TEACH it...?!? Not on your life! We also found that Emily really needed the social interaction that school provides as she's a very cautious person who could quickly become a loner. And Julianna... well let's just say that instruction coming from a teacher rather than from 'mom' is followed much more happily. Both girls excell at school and apart from this bit of trouble are doing great! Homeschooling my kids was a step I never thought I'd attempt but am so glad I tried.I guess I'm an advocate for both sides!
Have a great day! Kimberly

Oh, Tammy -- I sure hope your little pumpkin is starting to feel better. I'll be saying some extra prayers tonight...

And I hope you'll enjoy those granola bars. Next time I'm making a double batch ... and hiding some.

Thanks, as always, for visiting. I so enjoy your comments and thoughtfulness.
