Taylor and I were both hit suddenly and hard with the flu! On Monday morning, Taylor woke up with a 104.3 fever! That was so scary! After taking a cool bath and a dose of Mortin, her fever was down to 101 and I took her to the ER. I don't mess with high fevers! She looked so lethargic and listless; it was hard to watch.
It was a family affair in the ER as Tay's dad and little step-brother were all there also needing treatment for their flu and pneumonia! While at the ER I could feel my flu quickly setting in. I just couldn't wait until Taylor was taken care of and home resting so that I could then address my flu and get some meds... fast! Luckily, we have a brand new hospital right across the street from the neighborhood and there was no wait! We were in and out within 2 hours!
I got Taylor home and comfy on the couch and Grandma came to the rescue so that I could go to the walk-in clinic to get Tamiflu. Thank God for Grgr to the rescue! Mom's don't get sick days, so a little help was greatly needed and appreciated!
After a full week of fevers, coughing, and body aches - we're back to feeling like ourselves again! Time to get our flu shots!
