I have been out with the flu since last Thursday, I hate being sick. I am up today but haven't been on plan for a few days just eating soup. The kids have pretty much trashed the house when I was stuck in bed and they are telling me all kinds of things that I "said" I don't remember a thing??? It could be I was really sick and had a fever...lol

Thanks I am feeling better today just still really tired the doctor gave me tamiflu it helps as long as you get your first dose with 24-48 hours after getting sick. I am back to bed but did want to post to let you all know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth..

That is good that he wants to keep an eye on the asthma. That is nothing to mess around with. Get better soon!!

You can definitely say a lot with a fever that you won't remember - I came down with a pretty crazy fever on Sunday (it passed around 2am Tuesday morning yay!!) and my bf said I was just saying some crazy crazy stuff! I don't remember any of it.

Hope you are feeling MUCH better, it's no fun being sick!

Hey there, Colleen!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better! Soup is ALWAYS a good idea when you're sick, and we like Ginger Ale, too.

I say forget your trashed house and just go take a nice warm bubble bath. Things ALWAYS seem better after a nice bubble bath!

Thanks I am feeling better but there is still some kind of a problem with my breathing and my doctor has given me to steroid shots and a scrip for the pills. I love that the medication makes me feel better but hate that I either gain weight or stay the same I never and I mean never loss when I am on this medicine.
