Rough Week

We have been having a tough week! Eric came home sick last Friday with a fever over 100 F. He took some ibuprofen, went to bed, and woke up feeling fine (he said). Sunday morning he got up and got dressed for church and then decided to stay home. Here it is Thursday night: Eric is still coughing up a lung and Cade now has a cold and has had loads of snot dripping out of his nose all day. I think that Kennedy is the only one who has managed to sleep all night for the past week. Cade has gotten into a bad habit of waking up in the middle of the night and coming into our room, so that combined with Eric's coughing and snoring, have resulted in sleepless nights for us. We've been in bed by 8:00 every night, but I've been lucky to get 6 hours of sleep, and I know Eric has gotten much less. Eric finally went to the doctor yesterday where she told him that he had the flu but there's a chance he might have pneumonia. She prescribed Tamiflu and scheduled an appointment for Monday to take another x-ray of his lungs to find out if there's really a spot there. Either way, the meds he started this afternoon (he was finally willing to take half a day off), haven't started to make too much of a difference and it's going to be another long night!
To top it all off, we're having an issue with school and our nanny. Suffice it to say, we can use your prayers this week!
