Now I'm understanding why the pharmacist came to me and said, "This Tamiflu is a hundred dollars. Do you still want it?" I looked at him like he was crazy because while I was not thrilled that it was a hundred dollars, it was for my child who did in fact have the flu. So I gave him a well duh look and said, "Umm. He has the flu, so... yeah?"
The good news with Dracen is that he doesn't seem to be getting hit with it quite as hard as his brother and I'm hoping that continues to be the case and that I'm not the next victim because I did not have a flu shot and I woke up with a sore throat. My allergies are, however, in full swing so with any luck, that's all this is.
I told the boys last night that they will most likely always remember this spring break. I suppose it's a blessing of sorts that we didn't plan a trip this year because the only thing worse than having the flu over spring break is having the flu over spring break while away from the comfort of your own home. I know this all too well because for years I was plagued by the "sick on vacation" curse.
In other news, we got a new-to-us car a couple of weeks ago. It has a third row and a rear dvd entertainment system that I'm hoping will cut down on the backseat drama the next time we do make a long trip. When we were about to test drive it, Dracen informed the salesman that we have three dogs and that we usually take the little ones on vacation with us but not the bigger one "because of his butt stinking."
