Dad Sick With The Flu

......... We were called out at 12:45 last night by Mom.... Dad very sick with what looks like the flu..... His temp was 103......... We called the nurse and she got there and took his blood pressure and heart rate ......BP was a bit high but that was normal for him being so sick.......Dennis and I stayed till 3:30 until his temp was down to 100.9......... I will be there most of the day off and on...... so just wanted to say good morning and let you know that he is a bit under the weather......

I was just hearing about the flu this morning on the news and how the shots people got missed the important strain.
I pray he feels better soon.
And I thank God for protecting the rest of you while you care for him.

How are you feeling today?
I have been concerned.
Wondering what God is speaking to you about. Seems like things have been very busy lately.

Thanks for letting me know about Paul. I thought something was wrong when he hadn't posted yet. You needed prayers too? Are you okay? How's Paul today?

I got a flu shot like I do every year and I have never had the flu after getting a shot But this year I did!! I think Sharon is right they missed some important strain this year!
I will pray for your Dad and for you too. Love and hugs, Grams

Praying for you and your Dad...I hope you are starting to feel better soon and your Dad too. God Bless you and watch over you.

I'm glad that your father is doing better. I'm keeping you both in my prayers.

I am not worried about the eyes. I do believe I need to be more consistent with the eyedrops.

Take care. I know it's hard for you to take care of your parents, but am glad that you do. I talk to Mom everyday just to be sure she is doing okay.

Like Sharon, I've been concerned about you, but know that God is watching over you. Don't forget to take some time for YOU on the weekend. You need to keep yourself well to take care of everyone else, just as I do.

Hugs and blessings,

I'm am sorry you dad is so sick with the flu...glad his fever is down a bit.
I had that nasty flu in early February- I was in bed for three days! I know it can be more serious with older folks (not sure how old your dad is) but no matter the age, it's not fun, and hope he's on the mend too.

Thanks for stopping by to wish my sweet girl a happy birthday. You are such a blessing!
