The Flu

My entire family is sick with the flu. My four year old son got it first, and is only now recovering; he's had it for six days now. I got it second, and thought I was feeling better this morning, but am bed ridden again; I've had it for three days now. My 18 month old daughter started showing symptoms 24 hours ago; about the same time my wife did.

I'm in a state of fever induced delirium at the moment; in and out for three days now. So, I don't know a) why I'm blogging about this, or b) what I'm actually saying :-).

This sucks! It's just miserable when the whole family comes down with something so nasty. Colds come and go, here and there; part of life. When true flu hits, it's a whole different ballgame. People become incapacitated. The whole operation shuts down when mom gets this sick. She's the sliver of hope for the family when we're all in such pain, and when she falters, everything goes up exponentially.

The only thing keeping me going is the thought of our immune systems becoming that much stronger as a result of going through this.

If you read this far, sorry I took you through this whining session.
