The conference and the flu have absolutely NOTHING to do with one another. One thing at a time…
I have the blessing of being on the Write2Ignite conference team this year. I’m the website/blog admin and it has been a fun experience for me as well as a learning one! If you are interested in attending our conference in February, please check out our website Write2Ignite and our blog Fire It Up!
I mentioned yesterday that my two of my kiddos have both had fevers for the last few days. They’ve also had sore throats, congestion, fatigue and are feeling rotten.
The Nurse Practicioner checked the younger for strep and noted that the middle one has a sinus infection, but did NOT check either for the flu even though they had flu-like symptoms (especially the younger). I appreciated her reasoning. She said if it IS the flu, there is nothing to do but wait it out and treat the symptoms, keeping them comfortable.
As of right now, my youngest is snuggled up in bed watching cartoons and the oldest is working on her schoolwork (we homeschool) while coughing and developing a sore throat. The middle one is still coughing, stuffy and sickly — but no fever as of this moment.
Can I just say, that as much as I love Autumn and Winter, I despise the sickness that sometimes accompanies it?
*sigh* And now I must go to the store for more Motrin. I actually ran out.
Getting a good night’s sleep when two of your kids have fevers and your husband is in pain from an emergency root canal is next to impossible.
Livermush and grits are NOT good re-warmed. Blech!
If you get a chance, check out my guest post on the Fire It Up blog. The conference team members and conference presenters take turns posting on a weekly basis. This week I blogged about “Melting the Frozen Places” and the hard place I went through a few years ago that seemed to bring my creative gifts to a grinding halt.
