Weekend and Influenza

Our week started off pretty downhill. I started to have a cough on Wed and really did not think anything of it. So Thursday morning I was feeling a little worse and by Thursday afternoon I was shivering so much my knees hurt.
I knew at this point I must have a fever. I had my winter coat inside and still was cold. I decided I needed to take my temperature and it was 102.9.
I took some Advil and that got me through the evening. Friday morning I thought I felt better,but when I got up and around, I had no energy at all. I mean, it was to much work to take my pajamas off.
I canceled kids that day and layed on the couch the entire day . I hardly got up to get a drink and them I become dehydrated.
My fever was up to 103.5 and I was shivering non stop.
I went to bed early and when I woke up Sat morning, my shirt was drenched and I knew my fever broke.
Finally I was feeling better, but wanted to go the Doctor just incase I needed medicine . At this point the Doctor knew I had influenza ,but the worst was over . I hoped so! I just have a lingering cough that will not go away.,but otherwise feel human again.
Let me just say that I was never one to get a flu shot,nor my kids one, but after experiencing what I did, we all will be getting one !

The rest of Saturday was spent watching Kendric play BB and running errands we were behind on because of my sickness.
Saturday night Nascar started so we watched that.
Sunday we went to church and heard an awsome sermon.
I love weekends when we do not have to rush around .

How was your weekend?
