PHILIP UPDATE

Took Philip to the doctor today and had the H1N1 test. It came back negative. If it had come back positive, we would know for sure he had it, but with a negative result, we really don't know for sure that he doesn't have it!

Crazy - I know!!

The doctor said that about 30% of the people who get it test negative, so you really don't know if they have it or not by the test.

She does feel his symptoms are that of the flu and is treating him accordingly. Bed rest, plenty of fluids, and controlling the fever. He is pretty miserable right now with his high fever.

Can you pray for Philip to heal quickly and that Kevin and I do not catch it? Thanks everyone. Stay healthy out there!

Hoping and praying he feels better soon- poor guy. We had a flu in our house too - so far Johnny and Katie have had it. Jim and I think we may have had a minor version of it.

Keep us updated.

I also am praying. It's hard to see the little ones sick. It's hard on us when they're sick, too.

We are in the midst of it here, too, with the little girls. It's been a long week, and no light yet at the end of the tunnel.

You are absolutely in our prayers. We know you and Kevin need your strength to keep up with the little guy. God Bless your family, we hope for quick healing.
