Flu Zone

Yes, we got our flu shots and I'm a firm believer in them. However, the flu bug managed to move into our house this week :( My den looks like a hospital ward)

That's me, my 18 yr old Tyler on the sofa on the R, and Amelia - 12, and AJ - 10 on cots that they moved into the den!

My house has fallen apart I can't see the kitchen table, I have this extra bookcase by the one sofa, and Kevin is working his tail off. He feels bad because he can't be here to help us - he doesn't need to be here - doesn't need to get sick!

Tyler started running a high temp last Sunday, AJ started Monday. I felt bad Tuesday, and Amelia was sent home from school Wednesday with 102.5* fever! Of course, the coughing is so bad you can't hear the TV, and the kids are achy and grumpy! Chris, my 21 yr old who does NOT live at home called Thurs. morning. He was going home from work sick! Wanted to know what he came in contact with when he did laundry on Sunday!!

So, how was you week?

And you forgot to mention that the 21 year old son who doesn't live at home anymore also has it!

I hope you all start feeling better soon.

I'm sorry y'all are sick. I hope you have a lot of cans of chicken noodle soup on hand! If it is respiratory flu, another food item that clears your nose and sinuses is chile or salsa. The capsaicin
(source of the hotness of hot peppers of the genus Capsicum such as chili and cayenne and jalapeno) really gets in there and lets you breathe a bit easier.
