If you're coming over, bring some Tylenol.

I think, as of this morning, I've beaten my fever. But I still have fun coughing fits at times, and ache pretty much all over. Ava is still down for the count, as are Wyndham and Crew. This has been one of the most miserable weeks in our home in a long time.
I never mentioned that our furnace went out and we awoke to temps in the 50's on Monday morning. Of course, the part that needed to be replaced was covered under warranty until about 6 months ago. Don't you love those kinds of hassles in life?!
Still, I'm hoping the worst of our week is over. Next week the kids are on spring break. We're supposed to be getting snowfall here in Michigan. I'll take healthy kids and snow over this week. If you happen to be following Stellan's story, you know that what I've been dealing with all week is nothing compared to that. Thankfully we serve the same God and I am praying He will choose to get us all back to "normal" very soon!

Hi, Jody:

I'm lifting you and your family up in prayer right now. One of the positivies of having a large family... it is fun and always busy and exciting. One of the negatives... when one person gets sick it travels from person to person to person.

I hope everyone starts feeling better soon.

All five of us went through it last week. It's running rampant through west Michigan. The fever the aches and the lovely cough! All you can do is sleep it off! Yeah for a healthy spring( snow) break!!!

I am so sorry you are sick! Wish I could bring over Tylenol and chicken soup. I am praying for you...and Stellan too.

Drink plenty of fluids...cannot leave without a bit of health advice ")

Hi Jodi,
If I was in your area I would not only bring Tylenol but a warm meal too. I sure hope you and the kids are feeling better soon.

So sorry to hear you guys have been sick!! Praying you do start feeling better very soon!!

Love the pictures of Crew and the whip cream! What a good mommy you are. :-)

I hadn't heard we are expecting snow next week. Maybe that's just a mean trick and really it will be beautiful next week!! We can hope and pray, right?!?!

This is another of those times that we should all live closer to one another. I should be there helping you. Of course, right now I couldn't see very well but I would certainly try.
We hope you are all well soon. I remember when we were there last year and we had such a good time. But the sun was shining and the snow was gone.
Love to all of you and hope for speedy recoveries.
Karen

I love your blog and keep coming back each week. Hope all of you are better.

Stop by and see me soon. I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing, so if you visit several times and leave several comments, you will have a better chance to win. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you link to my blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME... just has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.
