Greetings from the Land of Influenza A

Fevers and headaches and muscle pain.  Oh my!

We are all getting the flu and dropping like flies.

It starts with really nasty coughing fit

And out of nowhere, your head feels like you could fry an egg on it. 

Sleep is fleeting, cough repeating, stuffy noses impede our breathing.

On and on and on it goes...

When will it stop?

In 4 - 10 days or so...

This is the nastiest, meanest, flu I have ever had!  What is worse, is watching the kids suffer through this as well.  I was able to tend to them until Sunday evening, then this flu hit me like a rabid freight train.  For now, Music Man is playing Dr. Dad and helping us all.  I love that guy! I hope that he stays flu free. 

Here is a sweet picture of our oldest monkey girl comforting our youngest monkey boy a few days ago.

The flu stinks.  It should be outlawed.  It should be illegal.  It should be chased out of town by an angry mob of people holding pitchforks.  It should be shipped off to Siberia (the remote parts, where there are no people). 

I think that I am delirious.

  1. I just want everyone to know that I have the greatest family in the world! My mom and dad have been running around tending to everyone's flu-ish needs for the past 5 or 6 days (I can't even keep track of what day we're on now). Poor mom is now sick :( but she still checks on us and fights like wonder woman! Dad and the older monkey boys are the last ones standing and they've really stepped up and kept up with everyone's needs, they've got the whole meal service and dealing out vitamins thing down!.....they must have superhero immune systems, I'm jealous. But I am grateful God has kept them healthy while being exposed to all of us sickies. Anyways, I just thought everyone should know how awesome my family is, fighting through Influenza A and all looking out for each other. I think I might have Aaron film a show ....it'll be called "I.T.A. : A Survival Story" (I.T.A. is influenza type A just in case there was confusion)
    Thank you family for your love and care! :)
