I am writing this in the midst of a flu epidemic.
Everyone at our house has an ugly dose of the stomach flu. Our baby girl Adair had it first. Then I got it. Like a game of tag, I passed it on to my husband. At 3 AM last night, our older daughter Ingrid joined the club. Our pet fish, Truman, did not survive. (May he rest in peace.) We are one sorry bunch over here. But soon, I know the fog will lift. The stench of vomit will no longer linger and I will be able to see and think clearly thanks to a decent night of sleep. (Maybe not tonight, but soon.) Flu season is my enemy. From runny noses and hoarse coughs to fevers and throw-up, I've had quite enough of it this year... but our family struggles have taught me a thing or two. Here are 7 tips for helping your family survive the flu. - By Lacy Stroessner
