I am finally on the mend after suffering through the flu. I can’t recall a time I have ever been so ill. Even with round the clock, more than recommended doses of ibuprofen & acetaminophen, my temp was anywhere between 103 and 105.6, with occasional dips in the 101-102 range. I don’t know what my highest temp was since I wasn’t taking it the first few days. I was desperate and literally crying, begging & praying for relief.
Of course, being Mom means resting was out of the question. The worst started on a Saturday and my hubby tried to watch the kids as much as possible so I could rest. I am usually incapable of leaving messes, but I could barely move those first few days. I did my best to keep up with laundry, dishes, diapers, toys & minimal cleaning while I was sick, and I was seriously wishing I was loaded & had a maid, nanny & cook, ha.
That Monday, I woke my daughter for school, settled on the couch to nurse my son, and promptly fell asleep, waking after my daughter had missed the bus. It is only about 5/6 miles and 10 minutes to her school, but I was so out of my mind from fever, it was a terrifying ride.
After bone shaking chills, bed soaking sweats, and fever induced, middle of the night hallucinations, I have finally come through the other side. My fever is under control and I’m just dealing with exhaustion, headache, ear ache, body aches & cough now.
I don’t have much energy & can’t stand terribly long, which is why I am so grateful right now for my Haan SI75 Power & Finesse Steamer! It’s so easy to use & quick to heat up, that I can clean one thing at a time as I am able. Faucet handles, sinks, toilet handles, counter tops, floors…you name it. Germs are getting steamed away. Did you know you can even steam sanitize your toothbrush? I wish I’d had this in past years when we kept passing around the stomach bug. I also kinda wish it would do the cleaning itself, like Roomba, ha ha!!
Remember that you can still get $10 off the Haan SI75 through 1/22/13 at 12:01 A.M. with coupon DIAPERS75 in case you want one too!
