We drove to Ohio on Saturday, and Dan and Melinda drove all day Sunday (literally--16 hours!). Dan and Melinda had both gotten the flu the week before, so we were so thankful they were well enough to make that long drive. Poor Melinda was still recovering!
Monday was a happy day as the 5 girl cousins were reunited! Much giggling and playing abounded! Monday night, however, Elia started running a fever. Dan and Melinda got up and took her to urgent care Tuesday morning, where she was diagnosed with the flu (even though she had gotten a flu shot, as did Melinda!). She received the Tamiflu shot, and it worked wonders! We thought she would be too sick to go to the Christmas Eve service, but she appeared upstairs, ready to go, when it was time to leave, and she was totally recovered!
