star of the week

I've had a fairly unwell time the last 3 weeks. And so have the kids for the last two weeks as well.  Initially I thought I had the flu which took about a week to get thru. I lost my voice for a couple of days, and just generally felt like shit. Temps, chills, prickly skin and awful headaches when I coughed. I was nearly over it and then I fell in a hole again. Another couple of days without a voice and the same symptoms. Then Sean went down, followed by Annie. They both seemed to recover and bang, they went down with it again. I took Sean to the Doc last week and he has a chest infection. Annie and I saw the Doc today and we've the same infection. Annie was put in hospital for 4 hours to be observed and to get her temp down. Thankfully we were able to come home after those few hours.

This 3rd time around for me has really knocked the stuffing out of me. I spent most of today asleep, as did Annie until we could see the Doc. Sean's still recovering. He fell asleep as soon as he got home from school today and Kym let him sleep. I'll see how he is in the morning. He had 3 days off from school last week. Annie will be missing the first few days this week.

It's times like these that I am so very thankful that I don't have a 9-5 job. There would have been no way I would have managed it in the last few weeks with me feeling so crap, and then with the kids working their way thru it.

We are all on AB's now. It looks like we have our own chemist shop at home.

I'm hearing you chick... we've been much the same. Not nice at all... and yes, I too wondered how working families cope in these situations... it must be terribly hard and very stressful. Hope you are all on the mend and that's the end of your share of the winter lurgies. ;)
