C'est la vie
- May 11, 2008
When I was a little kid, I once had a flu that was so bad that I couldn't even keep down water for 2 days. I was so dehydrated and my fever was so high, that it seemed like I was going to have to be hospitalized. However, my mom treated me with Yarrow baths to break my fever and an herbal/Gatorade concoction that quieted my stomach enough to keep down fluids. I remember though how agonizing it was to be that sick. I was so fatigued that I couldn't even button up my pants. I think it was probably one of the most horrifying things my mother ever went through as well.
