End of the week update

Well, it has been a busy week! I worked 10 hours at the library already and another four tomorrow! In addition to running around getting Sumana's H1N1 and her usual therapies, ANDREW got sick! And not your average cold. He has been sick IN BED since Tuesday . . . fever and a horrendous cough. I finally took him to the doctor today. Since the doctor said he heard 'crackling' in Andrew's lungs and the fact that Andrew got an antibiotic, I'm assuming he has at least an early form of pneumonia (though the doctor didn't specify). However, the doctor feels the lung issue is secondary to something else . . . so he tested Andrew for strep (negative) and H1N1 (results due later today).

The doctor is well-aware of Sumana's condition, so he also prescribed Tami-flu for her, pending the results of Andrew's H1N1. He also shared the 'good' news that while we've managed to keep the sickness isolated with good handwashing and LOTS of Lysol wipes; the system is bound to break down somewhere. He's concerned for our WHOLE family. UGH!!!! Greig's picking up a homeopathic flu remedy for us and believe me, at the first sign of anything we're taking it!

So, I guess I should have been less specific in my prayer request!!! Pray for health for ALL the Holmans, 'cause Sumana has to live with us!!! (LOL!!)


  1. Oh no! We have that fever and cough here too. So much for prior planning! I'll be praying that the vaccine she got helps thwart it and/or that everyone remains diligent with the hand washing. We've never had any luck with that one! I have a few kids that think that soap and water will kill them!

  2. I will say a prayer that you all can get through this!
