i know, you're probably thinking, "do i want to read a post with this title?" ...my whole family is sick with the stomach flu today. well, except for me. it hasn't been too bad so far, at least not compared to past experiences with my boys and the flu. joel has just had "the runs" and kadin has only thrown up once. they are being such good boys. they haven't complained at all and they haven't asked for even a bite food, which makes not being able to give them food easier. kadin actually asked to take a nap earlier today. here he is laying on the couch watching "dumbo," meanwhile joel is taking a long nap.
ben, on the other hand, isn't doing too well. he's had "the runs" since yesterday and has been throwing up all day. his body hurts so bad, that he hasn't been able to get much rest. for the last two months, ben has been going back to school, after a full day's work, to work on finishing his thesis at 11pm at night and staying until 4am. he then wakes up at 8am the next morning to head back to school and do it again. he usually does this a few times a week. i think his body is just too tired. poor guy. i appreciate so much his willingness to work so hard for our family so he can finish school and get a job, but i think i'm going to have to nix his late night thesis sessions or he's going to kill himself... or something. what a good husband. here's hoping this post finds you and your family a little more healthy than mine. :)
