Booger bubbles and Tylenol

Happily there’s no flu in our house—just lots of tea, multiple Kleenex boxes and the Vick’s humidifier running at full blast.

We have all been there. ‘Tis the season for sinus infections and gross noses.
My daughter got it first. Slight fever and her nose turned into a leaky faucet. No sooner had I wiped up her nose that it was back running back down to her chin again.
    With the 24-hour fever free rule, she got a day of Disney+ and snuggling with me.
    My son got home and his nose was running to his chin, too.
    Naturally, the next day it was my turn. Thank goodness by this time the fevers and noses were turned off for the kiddos, so I was free to nurse myself.
    This was nothing compared to last year, though. About this time in 2019, I tested positive for Influenza A. I’ve birthed two children—I know pain. But I would not wish what I experienced on anyone.
    Happily there’s no flu in our house—just lots of tea, multiple Kleenex boxes and the Vick’s humidifier running at full blast.
    If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, head over the Chase County Community Hospital.
    Even if you’re relatively healthy and don’t have kids, you can get the shot for those that can’t.
