Y’all it’s been a crazy few weeks. Valletta tested positive for the flu and Keira had a nasty ear infection. All of this happened the week before winter vacation. This landed us in the hospital. Valletta probably got the flu from her father. Fast forward a week; we were back in the hospital due Valletta losing a significant amount of weight. She also was diagnosed with a slight ear infection. She got antibiotics and we were out of there. That Friday we were back in the hospital after I had to call rescue for Keira. The antibiotic for her ear infection made her breakout in hives. Thankfully her breathing was fine. So I was able to drive to the hospital which is about 10 minutes away. We were seen relatively quick. They administered Prednisone (spelling), and an antihistamine. The rash was under control even though it got redder before it went away. During all of this I was (somehow) the only one not sick. I did get the lovely job of taking care of everyone. I was able to manage the symptoms with our homeopathic cold medicines. We got antibiotics only when absolutely needed. Fast forward to today, I brought them both to school. They haven’t had fevers or vomited since a few days ago. Valletta has made it to noon at school, but the day is still young. Keira made it an hour into school and her bum didn’t want to corporate. So I had to pick her up. Y’all this flu is no joke, get the shot if you still can. Wash your hands, and brush those teeth. I hate reading about death. Especially those that could have been avoided. Please keep those babies safe. Here’s to a healthy and happy spring. I’m back to posting, so things will pick up as normal.
Peace, love, and self acceptance.
