Flu Season Is Here

Sickand it’s made it’s appereance in my household.  Yes our neighbors son (who Aidan was face to face with in tackle football) came down with Swine Flu we found out, well a few days before he was diagnosed (but after they had played together) Aidan came down with all the symptoms.  We were like GRRREEEAAATTT.  So when we found out about the neighbor we took Aidan in to be tested for it.

However here in the great state of Arkansas due to the massive amount of flu going around, the health department (which is where it has to be sent to in Little rock) will not do the test to specify unless you are hospitalized.  Well Aidan’s  in office test came back positive for Type A flu which can be either Swine or regular.  Lovely right?

I never ever get the flu, I think that is one of the benefits of working in a pharmacy is my immunity is sort of built up but this year with the new flu out it’s gone into shock mode I guess.  I am not immune this year obvious because the night Aidan got diagnosed with Type A Flu guess who started puking her guts out *raising hand here*.  So all day yesterday I was dead I think I slept 18 hours yesterday.  Today the tummy feels a bit better and I ate a cracker (didn’t eat an ounce yesterday) but my body is still hurting like the dickens.  I can’t move and it’s miserable.  So here I sit in my bed, just wanted to update you guys but I forsee another day of not moving and being in and out of sleep mode it’s the only time I feel better.

So yes if you came here for a ha ha happy post today you can see it’s a bit on the whiny side but I am the one with the flu so I can whine if I want to 🙂

It can only get better from here right !

    I have had the flu and I SO feel for you! It was hell for 3 weeks. I think the couch had the shape of my body molded into it. Hope you feel better.

    Oh, and from someone who has suffered…take your time getting back to things. If you push too hard it will push back harder!

    With 4 boys, I know its only a matter of time before the flu hits here. And I am SO not looking forward to it. Especially if my husband gets it. He whines more than the kids! lol

    Hope you guys are feeling better hun! We have an “unconfirmed” case of H1N1. Dr. told us that over 95% of people in this area that HAVE the flu have this strain. So, we figured we’d save the 300.00 per person for testing to just go with “unconfirmed”.

    We don’t have a lot of vomiting like you guys, but the fever and aches are horrible. They have taken down my 240lb husband. Enough said. lol

    Get well wishes coming to you from TX. I’m praying for both our families to recover quickly. For now, my toddler is the only one who hasn’t gotten it. He’s staying with my parents till we get better.
