Update on the ill....

The Munck house is finally starting to see the end of the sickness! Last week Wesley, James, Stephen, and William were all sick running high fevers with a nasty cough and sore throats. It took 5 to 6 days to run its course.


This is the face I saw on Wesley a large part of the week, mixed with this....


Yep, lots of crying! He cried over everything from fever to someone looking at him the wrong way. This made for an interesting week, and he kept the virus the longest having a fever 8 consecutive days in a row! Now by Thursday this is what we began to see.....


Ruth Ella got hit with the virus! Miss Ruth Ella had the virus the shortest amount of time thankfully only lasting 3 days. As of Sunday the 4 boys were fever free and Miss Ruth Ella was starting to feel better as well. The virus wasn't done with the Munck kiddos yet.....


Yesterday, Jonathan started running a fever! I was hoping he was going to get through this virus being untouched, didn't happen. Today he has a fever and the nasty cough, and eating very little. So, I'm guessing his throat hurts too. Now I'm praying that the bigs don't get sick, but I really think they would have by now. With all the littles in their face and the coughing, pretty sure they would have had it already. Now to get back into our routine, last week really got us out of whack! Thanks for the kind words last week and the prayers!

I'm so sorry you've been so sick! We had it last week too. I got hit the hardest with it, but the children had fevers too. No fun! Hope Jonathan is feeling better!

I am so sorry that you all had sickness. I remember those days - - but on a smaller scale, of course. It does make for a long winter.

Yay! for the end of sick days. Good bye and good riddance. Hang in there Jonathon.

Glad to hear that most are feeling better. Do you think this was the flu? My friend's kids had these symptoms and they tested positive for the flu. My kids had this too several weeks ago but Asa had the fever the longest.

Glad it seems to be over. 8 days with a fever is a long time.

Praying for you all! Having sick ones is never easy. We all had the cough and the fevers but no stomach bug, thank the Lord! Prayinig everyone mends quickly! Praying Jonathan gets to feeling better very soon. "hugs"

Oh, my goodness! You guys had it much worse than we did. It started with me...awful head cold, "feeling" like I had a fever all achy and stuff, but my temp was normal. It was fast and furious and done within a week. Three others have had it in our house, with a fourth threatening! So glad you're all done with it!
Blessings,
Lisa
P.S. Take lots of immune building stuff now...extra C, chewable colostrum, vit. D so you don't get the next virus to pass through...now I've got to remember to take my own advice! :)
