puke and pooh

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. :)

I'm sorry your family is so sick today! They must have caught something at your ward campout. Give everyone a hug and a kiss for me. I'll pray that they get better tonight! Love, Mom/Grandma

yucky yucky!! Poor boys (although kadin does look quite precious on the couch!). I hope Asher doesn't get it! Poor Ben. He needs SLEEP! When I was a freshmen at BYU, I got like zero sleep, and I was the sickest I've ever been that year. Sleep does a body (and the immune system good!)

Poor buddies! I know it sounds weird - but Coke Slurpees always do the trick. Maybe not for the little ones, but for Ben for sure!

Oh man, your poor boys! Sorry to hear they are sick. And I will pray that mommy doesn't catch it because we all know that a mommy's job never stops, not even when sick. And I think nixxing the late night thesis rounds is a great idea! Hope you are all feeling better soon! (I'm feeling for you...I soooo don't do the throw up thing! it's Will's job. Poo I can handle. lol)
