After three days of being nauseous, my throat started feeling sore so I just figured I had a cold. I kept on with my daily activities (work and taking care of the kids) and by Sunday morning I felt pretty awful. So I headed to the Walgreen’s Take Care clinic (because I don’t have an adult doctor yet here) to find out if I had strep throat or what.
The verdict – Flu!!!
I can’t remember the last time I’ve had flu. I always get my flu shot but we haven’t gotten them this year yet. It’s been over 100 degrees! I sure wasn’t worried about the flu. Both Rose and Lilina have been sick too so they probably have had it as well. Somehow the boys have avoided it, which is good.
They started me on Tamiflu so we’ll see if that helps. I’ve never taken it before. I’m hoping it kicks in fast because I just have too much to do!
At this point I feel like a truck has hit me. I will write as soon as I’m feeling better. Until then, talk amongst yourselves!
