Is that really daylight out there? I'm feeling like a vampire these days, coming out into the moonlight after a long day of rest...but instead I'm a worn out mom coming out of this cocoon of a home from days of taking temperatures, washing washcloths, disinfecting surfaces and cooking and finding ways of putting good stuff into my children's mouths so they can battle the bug.
No, it wasn't h1n1, but a bad strain of the flu nonetheless. And while I am usually a very relaxed person when it comes to fevers, I remained on my toes as it lasted days long....much longer than what I am used to. I am truly just grateful that my children are great patients, and that I am a nurse....I put my triage brain to work to relieve the panic that sometimes ensued in my mind for these loves of mine. And to think that this is just the start of the flu season.
Alas, despite the days of being home all day with at least one sick one, I don't have any crafting to show. I just read, panicked, and read, and worried, held hands and disinfected,..."drink more water, babe," "one more bite", "try to sleep."
I hope that this is it for a while.
And I hope that your families are staying well...
