Life Is Just So Daily

I got a flu shot.
I still *most likely* have the flu.
I opted out of the rapid response flu test b/c it involved a rinse of the nostrils. gross. also sounds painful.
Besides, even if it's +, what? Tamiflu? That only minimally reduces the course of the illness, which has to run its course regardless of medication.

Symptom management from here on out.


I have online school work to do.
I've been doing that.
I'm RESTLESS. I want to just sleep, but I can't.

I've been able to hold down a cup of soup last night, about a 1/2 cup of goldfish crackers, water, and 1/2 a coke.

I get freezing, then I get hot.
My body aches from my shoulders down to my hips from coughing and throwing up.

The flu suuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

Call me if you need anything. I will put on my "space suit" and be there in no time.

Get well soon, my friend!!

I got the flu even after having the flu shot and know a few others that got it too. I'm sorry you feel so crappy. Get well soon!

Awww, poor you!

People all over here have the flu. I don't yet *knock on wood!

Feel better! Glad Gage's bones are healing.

I'm hoping that isn't the road we're headed down - Travis has an "elevated temperature" (we're not calling it a fever in hopes we'll go to school tomorrow), and I'm so achy I could quite possibly cry. I feel your pain - literally.

Hang in there and ride the wave...

Isn't getting a flu shot now a bit like shutting the door after the horse has bolted? Hope you feel better soon.

Yes, the flu does suck! Try to forget about all that needs to be done and simply concentrate on getting better. (Difficult for mothers to do, I know...)

I'm so sorry. :( Nothing worse than being sick when you have things to do. :(

Hope you can get some rest.

Oh my gosh! I have definitely been there. I hope you start to feel better soon! :( I got a flu shot....and I also got the flu. Just lovely when that happens.

Tamiflu worked wonders for hubby. He was better in 2 days. My neighbors took it too and took only a few days to get better. Though I did hear today that flu is becoming resistant to it.
