Frankinsence must have be a flu remedy

Friday, December 28, 2012

We often get a stomach bug after Christmas. Maybe it's being around family, and maybe people chance going out who otherwise wouldn't. I don't have it...yet. And maybe I'll be fortunate. Maybe my immune system was hyper stimulated by the pineapple allergy. I don't know if that's possible. I read something that confused me a while back about allergy being different from inflammatory response.

So. Just keep on keeping on. It seems unlikely at this point that we'll get away for the anniversary. I guess it's good we decided to be flexible. Or rather, I procrastinated making firm plans. It's touch and go. Will the baby be well? Will I get sick? My husband has been very sick for 20 hours and he's just starting to feel like the worst is behind him.

I did strength training today, and finally leveled my pull down. I just added 10 pound and dropped to 3 sets of 8. It was difficult. I am pleased I did it. I may look for some weight lifting gloves.

    My son is just getting over the flu. He was pretty sick for a day or two but now he seems fine. I've been eating after him all week, I wonder if I will get the flu. If so, its a good time for it, I am not working and between semesters at school =)

I think our immune systems need to practice on colds and flu a few times during the year, to be healthy.

    Maybe your immune system is just more fired up.
