Since We Didn't Get the Flu Shot.......

Katie has the flu!

Seriously, the one year I didn't get it for them!

Sunday she had a temp of 101. Monday afternoon it shot up to 103.4. Coughing, blotchy red skin. Called the DR. They wanted to see her.

"Do you mind if I give her a Flu test? I am just seeing it come around and am not sure of all the symptoms the kids are getting."

She gets a nose swab.....5 minutes later "Yes, that came up fast! She def has the flu!"

Serves me right for not getting the Flu shot! I will never do that again!

Poor girl. I have never gotten a flu shot for my daughter and so far, we have come out okay.

I just jinxed it, didn't I?

Stopping by from SITS.

We never get the flu shot - but last year everyone "had it" and then we found out later that they stopped testing and just winged all those diagnosis. We didn't get one this year, either - and so far so good. Just viruses. One threw up after the Super Bowl. But maybe that was just all the pain au chocolates he ate! Hope your sweetie pie is feeling better soon!
