D tested positive for the flu. I'm spending all my spare time following him around disinfecting everything. His parents never taught him to wash his hands or cover his mouth when he coughs. UGH! It's the bad strain that's going around that's NOT in the flu shots, so that's LOVELY. I'm praying to God Hailey and I don't get it--she's had a flu shot, but apparently that won't help for this one. Yesterday my glands were swollen in my neck all day. My father in law brought us some Cold-Eeze and Halls Defense drops. I've been sucking on both all last night and today. They say they don't really work against the flu, but I don't care...I'm doing whatever I can to not get sick. I slept on the couch last night and made D stay in the bedroom. I feel really bad because I've tried to be sympathetic and bring him whatever he needs and whatnot, but I get so pissed off that he won't cover his mouth when he coughs or wash his hands after wiping his nose or whatever and then he'll touch the remote or something that Hailey likes to touch...so I end up yelling at him and being a huge bitch. I DON'T WANT HAILEY OR I TO GET SICK!!! He just doesn't get it. Tonight I'm buying some kind of disinfectant for the air.
