Is it the Flu?
At 2:00 a.m., the worst of the cold from hell struck Elizabeth. Yes, it is the flu. Confirmed. What started out for Andrew as the sniffles and then ten days of snot infested mayhem, has moved on to its next victim, Elizabeth. From mucus infestation to infections of the ears and sinus cavities, she is miserable.
This winter is the worst by far that we have seen. We already had the confirmed Flu. I went out and just wanted to see why my throat was getting scratchy, just in case and the next thing I know my doctor is giving me Tamiflu and telling me to pray. It wasn’t too bad for the week, but then Elizabeth had it and she didn’t fair as well. Andrew probably gave it to us, as he has been sick on and off since before Christmas. Yes, we all had the flu shot and I believe that is why Andrew and I faired very well, and Elizabeth was the unlucky one.
Why can’t we just call the flu season, school season. It can’t be a coincidence that we have so many illnesses around the holidays when you give our little ones two months to pass around all of the germs they gathered and then released on each other. Every year it is the same. They go to school and within two months, our children are sick for about 6 weeks off and on until, the spring hits.
I decided to include a nice picture of me and Elizabeth, as I am sure any photo I could take right now would be unfair. For now, we are hoping that this will pass as well, thanks to big Pharma and our doctor’s prescription pad. Yes, we like pharmaceuticals and appreciate the hard work that scientists continue to do each day. Of course, it costs a lot and we can’t make them, so we are willing to pay the price.
