We made it! Sort of...

Candi & Sunny (Shylo's mom and brother)

Hannah & Kristi made it to Kenai! Hannah LOVES the dogs!! The first night we were here she was so happy to see them. She kept trying to grab them and eat their noses! It was really cute because they were so interested in her too! (For those who don't know, Kristi's mom breeds Labrador retrievers and has somewhere around 11 dogs! Only 3 are inside though.)

That all changed the next morning, because Hannah got the flu! She had the beginnings of the cold before we flew up here but it went full bore on Sunday. Her fever has been ranging from 101-103.5 for the past few days. The poor baby is miserable.

On Sunday after church my dad and step-mom through a party for Hannah with all the family but the princess couldn't attend her own party cause she was so sick. She's only been waking up long enough to eat then falls right back to sleep. I thank the Lord at least she is eating. It's been a bummer because we can't do anything or visit anyone. :(

Last night she was up from 3-4:30 coughing then crying then coughing then crying. After a few minutes of that I turned the shower on hot and closed the bathroom doors. The steam helped but she was still crying so I stripped her down and put her in the bath. She fell asleep in the bath! Then I wrapped her up and put her back to bed! Amazingly I was able to get her diaper and pjs back on without making her cry again! :) WOOHOO

I think her fever broke last night because she finally smiled at me for the first time in 3 days! It is sad when your happy, smiley baby turns into a fussy, cry baby.

Please pray she will continue on this road to health so we can get out and visit family and friends.

Poor Hannah! How sad. Hope she's doing better and you have a good rest of your trip. Sydney says hi to all her family too!
