The Bug!

Oh no -- Mr. Tennis and I both came down with the bug . . .
Influenza A!
Yes, we had flu shots -- I even had a "super-shot" or so they said!

But, oh my word -- this bug makes you feel like you've
been hit or run over by a train!
We both have had fevers, body aches, tiredness, chills, 
nausea -- the whole enchilada!
Mr. T caught it first and with his comprised 
immune system due to Crohn's and biologics,
he got right to the doctor (thanks to a little nudge by moi) and on Tamiflu.
Two days later - the bug got me too!
Also went to the doc asap and on Tamiflu.
I felt a little better after a day or two,
but still exhausted.

Now, we're in the cough and really tired stage,
so Mr. T got some surgical masks for us to
wear!  It's a fun look, believe me.
Haven't worn surgical masks since we returned from
China in 2003 during the SARS epidemic!
Luckily Miss M has not caught the bug and
I sure hope she doesn't!

We're having a snow day today due
to blizzardy conditions!
I think a nap is in order very soon!
Wash your hands and try to stay healthy friends!

Sooo sorry!!!!
Stay warm and hydrated...
And ease back into life when you feel better...
It sounds as if it takes a lot out of you!

Boo to the flu!!! So sorry you guys got hit so hard! I'm praying it's just colds at our house- as Aaron is now running around like a normal kid after one day on the couch. Hope the coughing is over soon and spring air replaces the blizzards!

Oh I am so sorry. I had it a few years ago and it was horrible. My head hurt so bad that I felt like the top of my head was bruised for weeks. The cough lasted for some time. Hope you are all feeling better soon.
