swine flu and breaktime.

Thursday, October 22, 2009

I have been really needing a time to get away and refresh. Have taken my vacation in a check for the last 4 years. I can only take so much for so long before I start getting calloused and depressed. So I have planned this weekend away, ( I work at the church most Sunday's so finding a free one is hard) . Took daughter to DR. yest. Mild case of swine flu suspected. no culture done but the symptoms are neck pain, throat pain, bad headache, and nose congestion. he said fever and coughing stt about the 3/4th day.
Nothing he could do, tylenol and advil to treat the headache and fever. There are about 20 kids in 8th grade alone at their school out with swine flu, but I still think there is more fear about it than really needed. To be safe though she is staying at grandma's house while I go this weekend as hubbie has to work. thought about rescheduling, but it was so hard to make this one happen, and we are only about 45 min's away if needed.

As for my stablizing part of my protocol, doing good with that. about 2 pounds below last injection weight, and one week down. 2 more weeks and I can start adding starches back. was going to start round 2 on Thanksgiving, but need 6 weeks for the starch part. so Christmas day it will be.

    Hmmm, Tamiflu helps alot, not sure why they aren't giving that right away... However, I will pray she gets better. I agree there is more fear than there needs to be, but when you know of someone in great health dying from it, it kind of feeds that fear, ya know?

    COOL that you can wait until Christmas Day before beginning again. BUT, will it be harder to stay within that 2 pounds up or down from last injection? If anyone can do it, you can!

    I hope you enjoy your time away and can you believe you weigh 179??? Seriously, it has not been that long since you started a little over 200 and to be at 179 so quickly, are you amazed with yourself? You should be!

    Sorry to hear of your child's illness. There are some vitamins and supplements that can help during colds/flu. Maybe trying some of those would be helpful as well.
