Cough, Cough, A-Choo...




Today we were all home from church on account of Meg coming down with the flu. :(  Our poor girl is just miserable.  At first, I just thought she was coming down with the usual sniffles (that usually develops into croup) that she gets about once per month, from September to March.  However, I was wrong, and it is flu that she has. 

Fortunately, she has slept, pretty much around-the-clock today, and the coughing, which has been horrendous over the last 48 hours, now seems to be abating a little.  We have a pan of elderberry syrup simmering on the stove at the moment, in the hopes that it will prove beneficial for our little patient.  And not a moment too soon, as Dylan is now coughing too...

Hallo!
I hope your little children will get better soon. It is wonderful to see how Amy is taking such good care of her little sister. Really nice!
