(Not So Good) Update

Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes for Rachel. We've gotten word from the doctor yesterday. It's a positive for H1N1. She's not hospialized though, which is a good thing. But she will be quarantined at home…likewise for the rest of us who are in close contact with her. I'm seeing this as a good thing coz Mom will be at home for another day as we all monitor ourselves for any symptoms of the flu, by which we (by that, I mean the humans. LOL!) will go for screening.

Back to Rachel, she seems to be getting better. Her fever has subsided (which is important for us) and she is slowly getting her appetite back. Just this afternoon she has enough energy to play with her Lego set so it's a very good sign. We're keeping our fingers (and paws) crossed that she will make a speedy recovery!

Hi Scottie, sorry to hear the news wasn't better but pleased that Rachel seems to be getting better. We hope she carries on recovering. And we hope your mom and her pals who have been in touch with Rachel don't get sick. Enjoy your quarantine with your mom - try and forget why it's been imposed and just enjoy each others company! Wished you all well - JD and Max.
