Warning: This post may be contagious

Apparently my family has 3 of the worst immune systems ever.
Shortly after his 6 mos shots, Jamie got his usual post-vaccine cold.
Then the hubs got a cold.
Both boys were finally on the mend and I woke up with a sore throat.
Wednesday I finally get checked out....sinus infection.
Yay.
Then my husband comes home with a wicked cough.
I force him back to the doctor....Bronchitis.
Lovely.
Yesterday Jamie woke up on the wrong side of the bed and was super crabby all day.
He also had a constant runny nose and a super fantastic cough that rivaled his dads.
Joy.  Another one bites the dust.
I put him to bed and notice he's breathing really fast which I thought was maybe just from his congestion.
I check on him around 10 before heading to bed myself and realize he's burning up.
I took his temp, the thermometer immediately starts beeping and the big sad frowny face informs me he has a temp of 103.9.
I sat with him for another half hour as he continued to sweat, fuss, cough and breath all funny before finally taking a trip down to Children's Hospital.
A full work up to rule out RSV, 2 chest xrays to rule out pneumonia until we reach the culprit.
Influenza.
Great.  My 6 mos old has the flu.  :(
Thankfully a dose of Motrin brought is fever down to normal by the time we left and it hasn't spiked over 100 since.
Today we've done a lot of sleeping, he hasn't left my chest in over 24 hours.
I don't mind the extra snuggles, neither does dad.
 Please send some get well vibes are way!!
Come on spring....we're tired of all these winter germies!!
