And then there were two....

Meg on the mend. Past the lethargic 'poor kid' stage and into the irritable 'poor mummy' stage. We got through the morning 'Boring. I want to go to schooool. Why are you stilllll doing the washing?????' and I had just geared up to go out and do some gardening when the phone rang.

"Hello Fukase-san?"
"Yes."
"This is Azusagawa-nishi kinder. Amy has a fever. Could you come and get her?"

Greeeeattttt.

I had told them Meg had flu and to watch Amy but that I wanted to send her as long as she was healthy as a) hopefully it would keep her healthy and b) one sick kid at home with one well kid was not a fun combination.

So, quick change of clothes, bundle Meg in the car grumbling and moaning about how unfair it all was and off to kinder, doctor, chemist, kinder, 7-11 and home. Kinder to get Amy, doctor to be told that yes, she has the flu, chemist for tamiflu, kinder to report we have flu, 7-11 to buy sports drinks and jellies as noone wants to eat anything and finally home to set up a sick bay in the living room. Fun, fun, fun!

It is going to be such a fabulously relaxing weekend. Wish us luck!

For some reason the post about MEg having the flu was the one that was at the top and then I clicked back and saw this.

Poor Amy! Poor Meg! Poor Heather and poor K!

Hoping for a fast recovery and no more sick fukase`s!

I have never had the proper flu before- maybe I am immune?

Big hugs heading towards Nagano- time to break out the playdough, colouring books and dvds I think!

God you poor woman. Lets just hope K doesn't get it. Hope both girls are genki soon.

achan- thank you. Much needed and in short supply!

Lulu- I am so behind on blogging and my parents will call me and remind me so I backdated three in a row, hence the sudden onslaught! I think when I was growing up in Oz we didn't have checks for flu right? We just had colds or bad colds, yeah? I have had the official flu once and it was really just an achey type cold. Fingers crossed for this time!

GW- my strong man K is SUCH a total WIMP when he even has a sniffle if he gets this flu I will be on the first flight to Kunimi. Seriously, when K is sick he's the first, last and only person the world has ever seen to be so ill- even with hayfever! give me a freaking break!!!!
