    Oh no! What a nightmare. There is so many bugs around at this time of year. My dad and his partner have been down with something too. She ended up in hospital with dehydration! When I had a cold the other week I was left with a cough and I ended up pulling a muscle. Ugh! It was sore but nothing compared to what you probably felt.

    I think my girls would feel pretty anxious about going to school to play Hunger Games. We all know what happens in The Hunger games. The school were really not on saying it was a surprise! I hope they both have a good day at school.

    It is so hard when mom goes down! I too have a little girl who does not do surprises. As a teacher I try to keep that on a minimal. Glad you are all feeling better. #keepingitreal

    Glad to hear that “the illness has left the building”! Hope your next post is about happy times. I usually don’t get a flu shot. I guess your story is a good cautionary tale about the benefits of getting one each year.

    Glad you are starting to mend and send warm thoughts for a healthy week. I had a horrible flu bout from end of November until almost Christmas. It went to an upper respiratory infection. I had the flu shot. Usually it helps keep me from getting the flu or makes it a milder case but not this year. Oh well. Have a wonderful week. #keepingitreal

    Hi Anne, it sounds like you have had one hell of a week. It’s bad enough throwing your insides up when we don’t have a condition like yours, so I can’t imagine the discomfort you were in. I’m glad to read that normality is resuming in your house again. I am surprised to read that you don’t have the flu jab, we get ours without fail every October, except I do know that this year my daughter never got round to it, so fingers crossed she doesn’t get it as it will go straight to her chest…. I hope that missing a treatment doesn’t leave you feeling too bad and fingers crossed that’s your illness done for this winter!

    Thank you for popping by and sharing with #keepingitreal.
