It started in with the family about two weeks ago and I finally became symptomatic on the 19th. I had to take my brother to the ER because of breathing problems. By the time I got home I felt like crap. Got a call from my brother that night that he was positive for Influenza A (because of allergies he can not get the flu shot). I/the family did. The kids just had a few hours of the fever and upset stomach and a few days after words of the cough. The adults on the other hand cant shake it.
I had to take care of wife and mother-in-law while I was getting sicker. They do nothing but sleep and complain for 5 days. In the mean time I am living from one Cough syrup and Tylenol dose to the next cleaning the house and setting up for Christmas. When I am so sick I can hardly stand and said they where going to have to get out of bed and do some of the house work. They did it complaining the whole time until my wife realized how hot I was and let me finally take the evening to rest. The next day I felt like hell but the fever broke during the night. Now it has settled into my throat and I can hardly talk at all.
