Having the Flu SUCKS!

I hate getting the flu.  I woke up Saturday feeling great. I had a bunch of errands to run and was happy I had them done by lunch time.  Luckily I did get them done.  By 3 o'clock I was in the bathroom with the flu.  It hit me swiftly and hard.

I had a doozy of a migraine headache along with a fever and chills.  I felt like I had been hit by a truck.. then the truck backed up and did it again.  It was THAT bad!

I couldn't sleep, I couldn't lay still, I couldn't sit up, I couldn't watch TV.  All I could do was be MISERABLE!

Todd and Zachary were away looking at a college in FL.  Ahren and Brandon took very good care of me, the dogs and feeding themselves.   At one point I was passed out on the bathroom floor. Brandon came in and covered me with a blanket.  He brought me my cell phone and left a note.  It read "Mom if you need anything, call me."

By sunday the worst was over but I was very weak.  I couldn't get out of bed without my heart pounding or being out of breath.  There was NO WAY I was eating, but did manage to keep some water down.   I did, however, read two books.

Monday, I worked but it was a mistake.  (Hindsight is a wonderful thing). I barely made it through the day.  I ate a few popsicles and drank water.  I tried soup but only took three sips before my stomach wanted to revolt.

Tuesday, I am getting energy back.  I actually ate crackers, a granola bar and apple sauce.

Has anyone else caught this bug?  It's just absolutely ****ing fabulous.

  11. This sure has been a horrible winter. At least half of the kids I watch had a version of the flu. The other ones had colds or coughs. Ugh!

  13. Dr. probably wanted to make sure you didn't get sick at the stage of pregnancy you are at. Smart doctor! The flu has begun to subside and now I am stuffy and have a cough. I just can't seem to shake being sick. Bluck!
