Well, after the funeral Sat I came straight home and went to bed. Got up a little Sunday night, but then the worst hit. Went through fever, chills, sweats, every thing in my body screaming in pain, etc. First started with a sore throat Friday night, by Sat morning stuffy head. Then complete crash.
Today I still can't do much, but at least I have eaten a bowl of grits and a piece of cheesecake dad brought me(can't resist that).
I had the flu shot back during my hospital stay Sept 11-19, so it should have had time to kick in. I am taking 2 homeopathic meds now Oscillococcinum and Hyland's Defense + Cold and Cough. So far together they have made breathing easier, less stuffy, less acheness, though I still feel like crap and want to sleep. I can at least see improvement from yesterday.
Now the worst news, my son told me around 6 that his throat was sore. At midnight he woke up screaming in pain, drenched with sweat, and couldn't breathe. I have already given him a dose of tylenol and the Hyland's Defense.
He is waking up again(1:45am). Just gave him a breathing treatment with abuterol and saline, along with rubbing more vapor rub on his shirt.
Of course, we will be at the dr's tomorrow. I called and they don't have an appt for me till Wed, but if one is open for Elijah they will probably treat me too(at least an anti-biotic). I just hope we can make it through the night without an ER visit.
