As of 15 minutes ago, there are now three of us with the flu in this house. In addition to Luke (Friday) and me (today), I noticed that Bennett was looking feverish right before bed. And sure enough, he was.
I started feeling really crummy this morning, and my cold symptoms quickly deteriorated to include body aches and a low-grade fever, so the Walgreens Take Care Clinic and I got acquainted with each other this afternoon and I got myself a Tamiflu prescription, too (maybe someday I’ll blog about that experience). We’ve now given Walgreens the equivalent of a car payment over the past 24 hours for Tamiflu (I had to use them because we needed a compounding pharmacy yesterday; the boys’ medicine had to be made from the adult capsules, as pharmacies are out of the syrup for kids). Not joking on the car payment thing…we’re testing our health insurance company’s reimbursement plan for medication since we’ve met our deductible this year and I am sincerely hoping it works. That is one check I will be very happy to get!
In addition to a nose that runs like a faucet and sneezes more powerful than I’ve ever experienced, I’m mainly just weak and tired, and hoping to sleep all night. That is, after my dinner that my love is picking up for me at JJTwigs…after reading on Facebook yesterday that Angela had fried pickles for lunch, they’re all I can think about. I’m ravenously hungry this evening…what’s that old wives tale about feeding a fever/starving a cold? Or is it the other way around? Doesn’t matter. Time to eat.
