Nurse Hilda

Over the weekend, I learned to love drinking water, hot ginger tea, the smell of vapo-rub, and put up with Nurse Hilda.

Nurse Hilda (aka my 11 year-old daughter) spent the weekend checking my temperature, bringing me hot tea, soup, and toast. 


She did a really good job, other than her persistent temperature checking.  She was insistent on taking my temperature in both ears.  Not just one.  And of course her motor mouth jabbering that kept me up to date on what was going on in the house.

School started back on Monday, so Nurse Hilda is back in school.  

I honestly don't know what I have, but will continue to use my immunity oil a wonderful farmgirl shared with me, my hot teas and such.  I see a huge difference with the homemade ginger drinks.

The two girls that were feeling under the weather, continue to fight it off as well.

Oh...and Nurse Hilda hijacked my blog (see post below) while I stepped away from the computer this morning.  Made me laugh anyway.

I am sure they will be sanitizing the keyboard too.

Could be worst. She could be using a rectal thermometer!

Do you get flu shots? There were some terrible viruses going around here in AR affecting mostly children this time...there were deaths too. It's nothing to mess with. I have no immune system so I have to get a shot every year and so far so good because I would not fare well.
