the sick house
My house has been the sick house this week. We were in Chicago on vacation, and the day after we got home, my daughter came home from school complaining of a sore throat. By that night, her temperature had spiked. The next morning, my son woke up lethargic and throwing up.
I’ve not followed my menu too closely, I’m not entirely certain I’ve made my bed one time this week (Kaylee has taken up residence in my room with one of the computers and a TiVo) and I’ve not been really proactive with the blog. Other than the trip to the doctor Wednesday morning, I’ve not gone anywhere or done anything or even looked at another adult and am starting to feel a little bit isolated from the real world. It’s just been that kind of week.
Our pediatrician said that they’re not usually this busy until January with flu season. He is not looking forward to the next few months.
Is there anything we can do about it? According to the CDC, we can battle back with these three steps:
Take time to get a flu vaccine.
Take everyday preventive actions.
Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor recommends them.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
