Daze 472 - 484: Fleu Time

If I was the kind of boy who keep score on such fings,
here is what the board would say about the last two weeks:

H WON, N WON
AND
THE MOM LOST

And by "lost" I mean I ain't never seen a woman as sick as my the Mom was (not that I have a lotta experience at bein wif sick women)... Me and the Bleu, we was very very VERY worried... mostly bout whether she was gonna have the strengf to feed us and fill our water bowl, but still... we was worried!


Now I do not want you all worryin bout the "what ifs" on a counta my family did many "welfare checks" on the Mom (wink wink) and therefore also (and mostly) the me and also the Bleu... And it also did take quite some hour or two of educatin from the Aunt Karen, Micro-Biologist to convince the Mom that it was ok to have the Nurse Luke and the Nurse Bleu up in her face.


(To this day neither she nor I can understand how it jump from pig to her but cannot jump to the Luke... but for that, I am grateful!).

Now... havin her home captive wif the us for so many days was pretty good fing, but she was not very fun. She was not playful and she did not sing or really be very chatty wif us at all. And so it was really kinda borin, and besides all the times we was puttin a mirror under her nose... we all just pretty much laid around, listened to tv and sighed a lot.

Of course, there were also lotsa storms, and ole gal raise herself up from dead to put calmin music on and also to sit in the bunker wif the me. I tried my hardest to be brave boy, but meltdowns some time got better of the me. Besides... it was good to see that at least one fing could get her up outta that bed!

Now on the bright side, I am happy to report... my the Mom is gonna live! I would say she is about 85% her old self, and gainin strengf ever day. And now I will close wif some advice from the her:


If you are eligible to take the H1N1 flu shot or nasal mist, take it... particularly, if you have asthma! I urge you to please take this disease very seriously. Take every precaution, and avoid handshakes, hugs and crowds. I'm not typically an alarmist, but there were a couple of nights I was afraid to go to sleep, for fear I wouldn't wake... and on Day 6, when I thought I was finally feeling so much better and free of fever, I took my temperature... It was 102.2!


Please... Please... take VERY good care of yourselves! I love you all!!!

I can't believe it's taken me so long to get over here for getting-well-wishing. Luke! Your poor mama, so sick with that dreadful fleu. Thank goodness you were there to help care for the mama - she always would have made sure you be fed and watered, dear Luke. We hope you are almost back to normal by now - we have understood that this is a very serious and awful flu - thanks for the very good advice at the bottom of your post. Hugs to you all xo

Hey Luke,
WOW! That H1N1 is really BAD stuff. Where dad works the big Navy publishes lots of "guidance" about it on an almost daily basis. We can only imagine how bad your mom was feeling at her worse if her temperature was 102 when she thought she was feeling better. It's lucky she had you and the bleu, and an occassional family member, to take such good care of her.
