We have the flu- Whine fest. — The Bump

We have the flu- Whine fest.

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.

  • Oh no! So sorry to hear it. Were you guys vaccinated? Just wondering if people who got the flu shot this year are getting hit or not.

  • Sick babies are awful but being sick yourself while the baby is sick is horrendous! I feel so bad for all of you!

     

  • Ugh, just awful.  We had the stomach bug a week or so ago and while that was awful, ugly breathing and coughing with LO'a is always so scary.  Here's to hoping you all get better quickly.  I hope you all were vaccinated for your safety!

  • We are a completely UTD family. My immune system blows right now, so we take no chances. This is hell in viral form. Whatever it is, is causing upper respiratory infections in almost everyone that catches it. So we're going into the doctor tomorrow as i am having trouble breathing. Thoren, at least, is on the mend it seems, i just want him checked to be sure.
