So i am in hell ladies.. My husband brought home the flu. My DS was already cutting all eight of his molars, and had his shots this week, so to begin with, not a happy well sleeping baby, now, he has his first flu. All day yesterday he had a low grade fever, couldn't sleep for more then 30 minutes at a time, his nose is just gushing, he is coughing up mucus. Then this morning, bam, mama has it. I have lost my voice, my throat is swollen, i have a fever and chills, my stomach is doing cartwheels, and i am coughing like a dog.. Thank goodness DH is home, he almost had a 24 hour shift today, and i was ready to cry.
The humidifier is going in DS's room with peppermint oil in it for congestion, the head of his bed is elevated, he has had his tylenol, a popsicle (organic orange sorbet for the vitamin c and throat soothing), and is thankfully, peacefully sleeping. I am slathered with vicks, am taking ibuprofen every 6 hours like clock work because i can't take cold medicine (one of the active ingredient interacts very badly with my antidepressants), and i can't have orange juice because of acid reflux disease. So i am basically living on air born, water, and apple sauce. Shoot me.
