I is for Influenza #AtoZChallenge

A box of tissues, seen from aboveA couple months ago, influenza visited my household. It was the first time for my kids, and for me it had been years since experiencing that. We all dutifully got our flu shot back in October, knowing that it’s not a guarantee of a flu-free winter.

The doctor prescribed Tamiflu, which worked wonders. The kids bounced back quickly, but I also had a sinus infection so my recovery time was longer. We’ve had bad luck and several other colds/viruses to deal with since then, they seem to just get passed from family member to family member. Even this past week the kids have been sick. I hope my daughter’s fever goes away tonight.
