Excuse me for a while

The YFG has got the flu.  Not just a cold, but flu - I'm fairly certain.  She aches all over, particularly her head and eyes, can't be bothered to move, has a temperature and no voice.  She woke up, discovered how she felt, burst into tears, and collapsed back into bed, where she has been ever since. She's laying there in the dark, with a cold flannel on her eyes.  I have given her some paracetamol and I hope she will sleep again now.  Caring for her as well alongside the FH is going to be full-time, I think, so I just hope he doesn't catch it from her, although he has had the jab; lots of washing of my hands is on the agenda, and trying to keep them apart, I suppose.  She hasn't been this poorly since she had swine flu about four or five years ago.

Proper flu is just so awful, poor girl. plenty to drink and paracetamol and lots of rest is the only cure I think.

And look after yourself as well. No-one wants you to be on sick parade!
