This is a post I was hoping *not* to repeat! Twenty-four hours after we got home with Ethan in February 2008, Joleen and I got the flu (in my case, it was the worst that I remember having). We wrote, Pray for Ethan, with the hopes that he wouldn’t get sick. And he didn’t.
Yesterday, less than 72 hours after getting home from Korea, I had what seemed to be the flu. It was pretty mild, but I was out of commission last evening, and I’ve just been weak overnight and this morning. So far, no one else in the house has gotten sick, and we’re hoping it stays that way.
Speaking of the flu, it was interesting to travel in the wake of the H1N1 pandemic and to hear the H1N1-related announcements on the airplane as we prepared to land in Seoul and in D.C. Korea took the extra step of handing everyone who was entering the country a small packet of anti-bacterial hand wipes and a card with info about the H1N1 virus.
Anyway, I’m not sure what it is about that trip that does this to me! 🙂
We’re just hoping and praying that the rest of the family is spared!
