A Plague Upon Our House
Our kids got to spend the last week of Christmas break laid out with the flu. The full out, kick you in the butt and then stomp on your face flu. To be more specific it was mainly Beau but Princess got a bit of it and I did too. Link just never stopped moving long enough for the bug to bite him and Mike bless his heart was the one that got to take care of us all. Beau came down with it first, longest and hardest because he is the only one that had yet to get his flu shot this year. Ironically, he was scheduled to get one this week. His temp hovered between 103 to over 104 for about 3 days and then stayed in the 100's area for the rest of the weekend. He halucinatted, had body pains and every other symptom you can think of for that dang flu. It was so hard to watch him in that much pain and suffering but he was a great trooper about it and tried to help when he could with Princess when she started to get sick too. She made it to 103 for about a day and then started going back down and stayed down. She and I both had way lighter versions since we had the shot but we both have left over congestion and coughing that goes with it. The three of us sound like a choir of whooping cough patients and I can't wait for it to end. My abs should be rock hard after this work out!!!! I hope that everyone else is staying healthy and away from this virus. It is really bad and I would hate for anyone else to get it.
