i have survived the flu of 2008
and am now back in the land of the
my kids and i got the flu shot just like
every other year...
and then Thomas brought home some
crud from the neighbors house.. and
it plays out something like this....
aches-so bad you think you are going to die
and when you realized your not going to die
you wish you were anyway
immobile-when it hits it hits hard and you are unable
to move for 24 hours
runny nose/stuffy nose- all at the some if that is possible
cough-oh yes that awfully dry cough that after 24 hours
your ribs and stomach hurt from all the coughing
i think that pretty well sums up last week for me....
Thomas was first, it originated with him and then
i was the lucky second one followed closely by
Ryane and then it started to weaken and Mike
got a very mild version of it.... one family member
was lucky enough to escape the effects of this flu
i won't mention his name- i don't want to jinx him
all i can say is if you get it--go to bed for a week
and keep yourself in a cold medicine coma until it is over.
