We were hoping to start the year all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but that didn’t happen. We more like bloodshot and nauseated to say the least. Jasmine was the first to get sick towards the end of December, then she gave it to Justice on Christmas, then he gave it to me New Year’s Eve. I believe Justice even gave it to his uncle Rich on Christmas day.
Two weeks later, it’s back to Jasmine. She’s got a runny nose and an ear infection and Justice and I are still coughing. We just hope that we all don’t give it to Ebru, who is holding on to her health and our little one to come in a few weeks.
So now we’re quarantined at home, by our own choice, not by the doctor’s orders. We’ve got our meds and now just have to hope for the best. With all the news of the flu epidemic in the US, it’s a scary time to be sick. With all these new strains of sickness I just hope our doctors can keep up with finding and providing cures.
I don’t want to be the one to say, ‘I didn’t think it could happen to me’. How are you holding up this season?
