Yesterday it looked like we were embarking the sick train.
I have been diligently feeding the children GSE and extra vitamin C for the past few weeks, as well as Echinacea on and off.
I've been avoiding public places as much as possible, and making everyone use hand sanitizer like a mad woman! All in the pursuit of building our immune systems and trying to avoid the flu.
Yesterday Susanna was certainly sick, as was dad. I immediately ran out and bought more vit. C, vitamin D, Elderberry, Yarrow, Ecinacea; plus ingredients for chicken soup (lots of garlic), and some fruits and vegetables for eating raw.
After picking up a handful of movies and books at the library to complete my arsenal for quarantine, I arrived home (napless) to fix dinner, make that chicken soup, tuck the little Bugs into bed and brace myself for the onslaught.
I kept up my steam admirably if I do say so myself. The only thing I wanted to get to and didn't, was cleaning the toilets. Having to lean over a dirty toilet is just insulting!
Did I mention that we have an out of town guest who remains with us for a week? Great timing huh.
You are glad you changed your plans Jenny.
And I am glad we didn't come visit on Saturday Mrs. Smith! I know YOU didn't give it to us;-)
Would you believe that everyone SLEPT through the night and woke up perky? AND feverless?
No more sick ones today, and the ones who were sick yesterday are looking and feeling great today. (?)
Now, I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I am treating everyone as though they are still sick today.
I am highly skeptical that it was a passing bug, or that we conquered it so quickly.
If we make it through the night again in good form, I will think about rejoicing!
You know what the Good Book says: Pride comes before a fall...
I'd hate to induce a lesson in humility because of premature gloating!
However, I will say that I am EXTREMELY grateful for the rest I got last night, and for the quiet day today. I really was geared up for the worst, and any one more day of good health we get, I praise the Lord for! He is so very generous to me.
It looks like we might have escaped the big bad bugs this time...
I'll let you know if otherwise.
Thanks for your prayers - Mom especially:-)
