FLU...I loathe you!

This is what the last 4 days has consisted of in our home...(from top to bottom)
-Sanitize every surface in our home, especially the rooms that Mark & Andrew have been quarantined. I forgot the hand sanitizer but that goes without saying. This also includes washing all of the bed linens since I am trying hard to keep Mason and myself from becoming the next victims of this villain.
-Medication administration...between the flu meds for Mark & Andrew and Mason's meds after his surgery, I almost need to set the schedules in Outlook for reminders. The Stress Formula with Zinc is for me ;-)
-Breathing treatments. I thought we were past those days since the boys are older. Washing out the little canisters endlessly throughout the day...blah.

Oh, and I am trying to get work done from home in the midst of all of this. After almost two weeks with only a few hours spent in my office I am VERY BEHIND. I wonder if they make Extra Strength Stress Formula? Yeah, they do...I think the generic name for it is whiskey...LOL.

Oh my goodness. You have certainly had your share of it!!! You sound like Britni- from her own upper respiratory infection to Rainey's staph to Chandler with swine flu back to her own staph. At Rainey's birthday party this past week end I had a little galvanzied bucket of "party favors". I put in face masks, rubber gloves, sanitizer, Chlorox wipes, Lysol wipes and spray. :) Britni has one sick da left for the whole year!!! Oh well . . . some days you step over it and some days you step in it!! LOL

You poor thing! I completely feel your pain! We are in the same boat here! I have a similar post tomorrow. I feel like I need a nursing degree. Hang in there!
