Sorry if this is a little TMI. You can skip this post if you want. I won't be offended
Two weeks ago the flu bug decided to move in and make it's home in Alex's stomach. Never a sadder sight did you ever see. And it wasn't like it was just a 24 hour delio. No, this lasted in his poor little body for 3 or 4 days. But he eventually got over it. In the mean time, my mom and grandma and grandpa and just about everyone else I know was deathly ill with pneumonia, coughs, colds, bronchitis, etc. But I never got what they had. And I thought I was in the safe zone. Until Saturday night.
Saturday night I was out. All of a sudden, my nose exploded. A literal bomb went off in my sinuses and within an hour I had a full blown cold with the worst sinus headache I had ever known.
Then Sunday I caught Alex's flu. Between being unable to breathe and hugging the toilet and praying for relief, I laid in bed and called to Alex to warm up my corn bag, took warm, wasteful, showers that soothed my aching body and made my muscles sing with sweet comfort. I would like to take a moment and thank husband and Crystal Light water flavor drops for my existence last night.
We eventually went to bed. I woke up this morning and I am new woman. My sinus pressure and nausea is gone! I am only left with a slightly stuffy nose and that is something that is more than manageable. Here's to hoping that this winter epidemic is over.
