The Flu – A Vacation for Mom

The flu kicked my butt for 4 days last week, no thanks to the flu shot that I got in October. I had a fever that got up to 103 several times, and even after Advil, it only got down to 101. I was cold, shivering, sweating, coughing, and an all around beauty to behold. But I must admit – I secretly enjoyed the nasty little virus. Why? I got to lie in bed for 4 days. I watched television non-stop that didn’t consist of cartoon characters or silly grown men talking to puppets. And I SLEPT. WHENEVER I FELT LIKE IT. Oh, to go back to that place of fever-induced hallucinogenic dreams and a total weight loss of 2 pounds.

(I must thank my husband who took care of Monkey Man like a good Daddy while I was sick. It was because of him that I was able to curl up in bed and recover from the flu that I paid $20 to not get.)

Just like I have to tell people about K9 Cough. The vaccine isn't 100% effective, there are various strains...blah blah blah
Sorry you were sick and glad you are better.
