Well the flu has hit the Savage household..... I have the flu for the first time since Jr High. And it is as bad as everyone says it is.... I feel like I am dying. And the worst part? We are going to miss Christmas for the first time EVER with our families! I am too sick to fly, let alone risk getting everyone sick at home. I am in denial right now but I know tomorrow when it sinks in that I should be celebrating at home in Oklahoma that it will hit us hard.
I mean I can't believe my luck! Last night my coughing fits were so violent that I pulled all the muscles around my ribs..... it is brutal. I am quarantined to our master bedroom while Matt is down stairs hoping he isn't next! Right now I am sitting at my desk typing up this post and it is pretty much the first time I have been out of bed since Saturday.

Saturday I was a little under the weather.... I took a nap and when I woke up it hit me like a ton of bricks and by the time I was seen at urgent care Sunday my fever was almost 103. The doctor said that is how it happens...... so suddenly and out of nowhere. Just ask Matt I cried all day Sunday because I was so miserable and of course all this sickness has kicked my migraines into over-drive so I am dealing with all of that too.

I just can't believe I will miss out on spending Christmas with my family.....seeing them open gifts and all of that. I haven't seen my aunt, cousin or grandparents in like 6 months and that devastates me! As of now I am hoping to maybe fly home next week for 2-3 days to bring our gifts home and see everyone but sadly Matt won't be able to go due to work. I told him to fly home now and leave me here but he won't. And plus what if he has it and gets everyone sick at home.

ok ok..... enough of me being a debbie downer...... I will take my sad-sack-sickie-self to bed again.

oh how awful. I was ill last Christmas, not with flu but I had some kind of infection which made me really ill. I missed out on all our usual get togethers but like you say, you can't risk passing it on, some gift that would be!! Snuggle up and get better xx

You are not being a Debbie Downer. Your blog is a place for you to be honest and real. I am sorry that this is happening to y'all. It has been hard to have Ashley away for Christmas for the first time in 28 years. I too am in denial that she is going to be away. I had to FedEx her gifts on Monday. I think I was secretly hoping she would say her Aunt got them passes to fly home (fingers crossed) maybe it may still happen. Flying standby on Christmas is probably unheard of though. Saying prayers that next week works out. I had the flu once years ago and it was like I was going to die, definitely can relate! I have gotten a flu shot every year since religiously. Hang in there.
