Flu

Looks like the flu is going around here. Lots of kids and their moms and dads from my daughter's Kindergarten have come down with it, and apparently so have I. I woke in the middle of the night with a headache, chills, achiness and sore throat. Other people who've had this tell me they progressed to fevers, coughing AND vomiting, sometimes for 5 or more days. UGH. I hope I don't go THAT far down the path...

My daughter says her belly hurts so we are home today vegging out. I am nauseous so I had toast for breakfast and am sipping a diet 7-Up right now. I even went out and walked the pup a half mile (she really needed it) and felt like a zombie out there... especially when I realized I hadn't even combed my hair!

Hoping for some decent sleep tonight. Brain is not working properly, so this is all the post you get :)

Get rest and I hope you feel better soon. I felt the same when I had the flu in January. I never got to vomiting thankfully, but many others did. Our family was spared that part of it. I was zonked for about 2 weeks though. Just slept & slept or wanted to just sleep.

Get to the MD and get Tamiflu within the first 48 hours of your symtoms starting. Today is day 19 for me. Just started IV meds via a PICC line to keep me out of the hospital. Take care.

Ugh! You poor thing. And your kiddo, too. The flu made the rounds in this house, last month. I feel your pain. Rest as much as you can, push fluids and stay warm. I hope you all feel better, soon.
