God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

The Flu

Brian took Zachary to the doctor this morning after a LONG night and Zachary tested positive for the Flu (Flu A). Yes, we got our flu shots this year, but the doctor said that the flu vaccination loses resistance. So.... since Zachary and Anna Grace are all over each other every day there is a very good chance that she has been exposed although she is not symptomatic at all yet.

The doctor said that healthy kids should be able to fight the flu, so Zachary is not on any medication, but he is starting Anna Grace on Tamiflu to try to head it off at the pass (so to speak).

He said that about 30% of kids have a pretty severe reaction to Tamiflu (mostly stomach related) so please be praying that Anna Grace's body can tolerate this medication and that should she contract the flu that her little body can fight it.

We will just ride this storm out one day at a time and trust the Lord and His soverignty.

According to the doctor, the biggest risk of the flu for Anna Grace is that it could turn into a pretty severe case of pneumonia pretty quickly so we will just be on the lookout for any signs of that over the next week.

Thank you all for praying for our family. I will keep you posted.

(P.S. - for now Zachary is being confined to the master bedroom and he has been given carte blanche to watch as much Spiderman and Ironman as he wants).
