The picture below was us this last week….we all had the flu! I don’t remember the last time I had the flu but I am pretty sure this was worse than giving birth to all 4 of my kids! And not only did I have the flu, so did 3 out of the 4 of my kids. Talk about rough!
So this holiday season I Challenge myself to…..WASH MY HANDS! Don’t worry I do wash my hands, after handling raw meat, after going to the bathroom, you know the necessary times but if I am going to be honest, when we go to a store, or a playground at the mall, I am not good about washing my hands or my kids when we leave. I honestly believe that is how we got the flu! We all got it at the SAME time which makes me believe we all touched something, either a table top while eating out, or a shopping cart and all came into contact with the same germ! Just washing our hands could have avoided 2 weeks of pure madness! So that is my goal this holiday season!
Another way I plan to keep my family and other’s around is to stay home if we are sick! We stayed home for a full week with the flu, I washed my hands constantly, washed our bedding twice and wiped down our house with antibacterial wipes nightly and guess what, not one other person got what we had! I knew how bad I felt and desperately did not want my husband or newborn to come down with it either and I honestly believe by just washing my hands, I saved them from getting sick!
If you do come down with the flu, you need to contact your doctor ASAP. When I came down with the flu, after getting the ok from my doctor, I tried out the NEW Hyland’s DEFEND Severe Cold and Flu. It made my symptoms ease up to the point where I could still function because at one point, I was having a hard time even taking care of my kids! Thankfully the combination of Hyland’s severe cold and flu and my mom coming over to help, really help me recover quick. And yes I am 30 years old but not too old to call my mom for help when I get sick!
My 2 middle kids had the flu but was not very severe so I just gave them Hyland’s Sniffles and sneezes to help dry them up and of course it worked like a charm! My oldest had a really bad cough so we used the Hyland’s Cold N’ Cough nighttime cough medicine with him. Normally when my kids are sick, no one gets any sleep but this time around I was so happy because even as sick as we were, we were still able to sleep at night thanks to Hylands. But remember the flu is not to be taken lightly so call your doctor is you feel flu symptoms coming on.
