Luke and I are on the mend. We both contracted influenza.
My older two kiddos got flu shots this season, but I waited too long and was unable to find a toddler (dose) vaccination for Luke. As a First Responder, Chris typically gets his vaccination through the City. I'm sort of on my own in finding one, and unless I'm pregnant I typically skip it. Guess I've learned my lesson!
So far, the older two have remained healthy.
Luke and I started on Tamiflu last night. In a little over 24-hours we are both experiencing relief...Luke more so than me as I probably started the medication too late. (It is recommended to start Tamiflu within 24-48 hours of the onset of fever.) Although I am struggling with a deep, choking cough, my non-stop headache and body aches are gone and a full day of bed rest has done me good.
Can you believe tomorrow is February 1st???!!! I gotta say that I'm really looking forward to the changing of the calender. January was extremely rough, health-wise, for our family. Here's to the Month of Love and some fun, creative, crafty posts!!
HUGS and a huge thank you to all of you for your thoughts and prayers,
