The last two weeks have been miserable, to say the least. First, our 2-year-old Zeke came down with something. He puked once, and had a slight fever but not bad. Before we knew it, our 3-year-old Izaiah had the same situation going on.
From that point on, the rest of our family slowly went down. One after another, each of us, with the exception of our 8-year-old, came down with the crud. We later found out, the crud was the flu.
The flu? I didn’t think it was the flu because we had ALL been vaccinated. In November, when our pediatrician offered a family flu shot clinic, my husband dragged us all out of bed EARLY one Saturday morning to get vaccinated. So no way this could be the flu. But yes, after my husband became VERY ill (way worse than any of the rest of us), we got the diagnosis.
Surviving the last few weeks has been challenging. I think I can say that we made it, though I am knocking on wood right now.
While our family is rarely all ill at the same time, over the last two weeks we did learn several things that can help. I hope these tips will help you survive the flu if it hits your house. (But I hope it DOESN’T hit your house!)
What tips do you have for surviving the flu?
