This week shall henceforth be referred to as Flu-mageddon in the Harvey household. I started feeling not too great last weekend and had the flu blown flu by Monday, which landed me out of school and out of commission until Thursday. How is it that I have made it this far in life and have never had the flu before? I don’t know….but I NEVER want it again.
To make matters worse, we were so worried that I may give it to Addie that my mom kept her from Monday until Thursday afternoon. Before this flu-event Addie had never spent the night away from home. She, of course, was well taken care of at Gigi and G-pa’s but we missed her like crazy….
The day I picked her up she had been running a fever, and by the next morning the doctor had confirmed our fears….. Addie had the flu. Today she has been in remarkably good spirits considering her nose is a continual snot fountain and her little croupy cough could rival a grown man’s. She has been playing around the house and making the most of her Saturday quarantined inside. I am praying for a good night’s rest and a speedy recovery all around.
The flu may have us down, but we are not overcome! I am thankful to have such a strong support system of family , friends, and colleagues eager to step into the gap when needed. God truly has taken great care of us this week.
