If anyone's noticed my strange absence lately, it's because my whole family has had a terrible flu for several weeks. My eight-year-old had to be hospitalized Monday for dehydration but she's much better now and we were able to come back home yesterday. We've all got a lingering cough and snotty noses but no more vomiting. Here's hoping the rest of the new year goes smoother for us all.

Oh my heart sank when I saw "eight year old" and "hospitalized!"  I'm so glad everyone's back home and doing better--here's seconding your wish for smoother sailing now!

Glad to see you back here at KB, Dara. I hope you and your family are completely recovered soon. It must feel great to have your daughter back home!

Hi Dara,

I'm so sorry your family has been through this, but glad you are all on the mend. We've also had the flu here and it kicked me down for a week, my husband even longer. I can't imagine how the little ones get through this.

Your babies are adorable, btw.

;)

Thanks for the prayers and good thoughts, guys. DD was able to go back to school yesterday.

And she looks just like you. :)
Everyone says so. :) This one is a mini me, while my other daughter looks like her daddy.

Oh my. I feel for you. It was the top headline on tonight's news. My kids refuse; no matter how much I beg, to get the Flu shot. Prayers for your family...especially your daughter.

I am so sorry to hear that.  The flu has been so bad this year.  Nearly 30 people have died here in Illinois, alone.

So, all my best to your daughter and your family.
