Influenza Type B has invaded our home!!!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Ken and I are both really sick with the Influenza Type B!!! Guess my flu shot didn't work so well. The doctor said yesterday that the prednizone she put me on for the hives and rash compremised my immune system. I am the first case of Type B she has treated this year; all the other ones have been Type A. As she also told me of course I would be different. LOL!!
Can't type any more. Will be back as soon as possible.

Thankful for my flu shot. Supposed to keep this from getting worse.
Plenty of water and tylenol.
God's daily blessings.
Flu shots which I have taken faithfully for years.
People checking on us.
McKenzie who is worried about us being "old and sick" and her prayers for us.
A nice warm bed to lay in and recuperate.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Hope you get to feeling better soon. Some awful bug has been circulating our town too and I think half the town is down with it. It's a nasty one. Take care of yourself!

    I know what you are going through-it is a bad flu this year. I got it first and when DH came down with it 4 days later, he also developed pneumonia and spent time in the hospital. Here is to your not getting down too bad. I know I am just finally feeling like I am better and I came down Dec 23!

    praying for both your and Ken's speedy the meantime, stay snug and warm in your nice warm bed....
wow, I didn't know that about prednisone...for some reason, I thought it was supposed to help your immune system, not lower it.....good thing to know. of course, there will always be times when the need outweighs the risk of anything, I know....

again, prayers and hugs for you and your husband.. emoticon emoticon
