Thank goodness for iPads. It takes all of my energy to hold my iPad in front of Sophie's face so we can play fun apps that teach her words like contagious. It's a very important word. I explain it to her like this, "So Sophie, remember when you coughed in mama's face? Like directly into her mouth when you had a fever? You were contagious." Or, "remember when you put your entire baby hand in your mouth and then put it directly into your daddy's mouth? You were contagious then, too."
Here is a glorious work of art created by Sophie...with her toes. She's a creative one. She's actually starting to get pretty mad when I don't let her use her toes on the iPad and I foresee this as a potential problem. A really funny problem.
This is another nice piece of artwork that has been created during flu hell. I'm pretty sure it's a robot dog (?) yes, definitely a robot dog.
I took drugs. They are amazing. I love the drugs. Ibuprofen and Tylenol are my new friends. Now, all I have to deal with is this horrendous cough. It's much more manageable without the fever.
If you haven't gotten the flu shot, might I suggest doing so. Although, I just got off the phone with my ER doc friend who called to check on us, and she said she is seeing lots of Influenza A come through her ER in people who have been vaccinated. We know this is what we have, because we had Sophie tested. So perhaps the flu shot this year isn't the best match for A but B could be on the way, so we are all going to get our flu shots. Yay shots! Stay healthy everyone!
