so now I’m immune, right?
Lack of blogging as of late totally due to lack of energy. We’ve had the flu run through our house here, starting last Wednesday. The two-year-old popped a fever that afternoon, that only continued to rise. A trip to the urgi-care revealed the culprit: Influenza A. Yuck. Next day, the three-year-old popped a fever. Great. Very tired mom… very… tired.
Has been progressively getting a little better each day. I’ve been going to be before 9pm to make up for the lack of energy/sleep being had due to sick kids. Eli still has a fever today. I am anxiously awaiting the “24 hours without fever/fever reducing medicine” to kick in. Rachel is doing much, much better. That child, her immune system should be a case study in a scientific journal! She never gets sick… and when she does, it’s no big deal.
Next step: dealing with the after shock of the flu. Matt and I both have some nasty stinkin’ congestion and coughs going on… and I think Eli may have a sinus and/or ear infection. Bleh. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow when I take him to the pediatrician.
After all of this… I should be immune, right? Ha! I wish! After this, I’m an even bigger proponent than before of the flu shot! I’ll be getting mine as soon as it’s available! 🙂
