After a few days of feeling nauseous, it's becoming painfully clear...I have the flu. And I even had a flu shot. Actually all of us did. But this is no ordinary late-winter cold. All but Future Farmboy have been struck.
I thought, no way could we have the flu. But I woke up this morning to a story in the Chicago Tribune about how the flu shot we all got last fall only gives us about 50 percent protection against the varieties of flu strains out this season.
Ugh. The good news, I hope, is that after a full day of pushing fluids into Future Farmgirl, she seems to have her appetite back and boundless energy. I'm hoping that's good news for me and the iFarmer, who came back from his conference today completely wiped out and fading fast.
The bad news? I don't have a mommy or wife to take care of me.
