I should have known that if I stopped using On Guard that we would get sick. I was so diligent in the Fall, but then time got away from me and I just forgot. So over the fun Holiday weekend my husband and I looked like the grandparents in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We huddled in our bed fighting over who would get up and feed the kids.
Have I mentioned I have amazing children? They took care of each other and themselves for three solid days. Have I also mentioned that I love the Wii and I am glad that we caved and got it this year?
Have I also mentioned that I love essential oils? As soon as I started feeling sick I started putting Oregano on my feet and Peppermint on my head. It seriously helped and in between bouts of fevers and chills I was able to function a little bit. At least long enough to make grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids.
I have now caught up on all of my TV shows (two) and almost every movie that I have missed in the past year.
We even managed to croak through scriptures all three days. Today I am still feeling crappy, but the chills are gone as of this morning and my head doesn't feel like I am being hammered on all sides.
Having said all of that, did I take other medications? Yep. I took a dose of advil a day for the headaches, and TylenolPM at night to sleep. But I didn't take it round the clock, which is what I would have done in the past. For that, my kidneys and I are grateful.
