Back to Normal



Last week, my kids came down with a flu that lasted an entire 7 days! Fever, congestion, caughing and worst of all, totally lethargic. Even doped up on Motrin and Tylenol their fevers never totally broke and neither of them were back to their usual selves. There's a feeling of frustration and worry when your kids are sick like that which just knaws at you until they get better. Towards the end, they started to play a bit and we started to hear them fighting. Normally a parent's first reaction is to break it up and get them to make friends but to us it was a hint that they were finally getting back to their old selves.

My commiserations. I know exactly what you are talking about. This virus is apparently global. My kids have been home with a fever and similar symptoms for over a week as well.

BTW is it also back to normal with work? Now that the strikes are over?
