We were hit hard by the flu here. Fevers, croup (it sounded like we had some barking seals in the house), sore throats, ear aches, runny noses, stuffed noses, chapped skin, sinus infections, headaches, chills, coughs, throwing up, sleep troubles…it has been loads of fun. I’ve been so tired, I’ve spoken nonsense at times lol.
We had to steam the kids, take them out in the cold air, give prescription meds, put Vicks on feet and chests, drink loads of tea, drink plenty of water, eat an immune boosting soup, take honey and lemon mixture, get lots of rest, pray, spend nights sitting up, spend days snuggling sick little ones - it’s been exhausting.
Are we done yet? Not quite. In fact, I’d love to crawl in bed as my ears and throat hurt right now, but I’ve missed blogging and figured I should let everyone know what’s up. Most of the kids are back to healthy. Hubby and I seem to be bring up the tail end of this fun round of the flu.
I will say this - there was a drastic improvement when I kicked the natural remedies into full gear. I’ll share some of what I did for a works for me Wednesday post soon over on a dash of sassitude.
Not only have I dealt with the flu, but I'm also getting a huge amount of spam. I've had to disable the comments for now, so you will have to leave your comment over on the tag board for now.
I'm working on a whole new look for My Meandering Mind, so stay tuned.
