    Default Tips for Dealing with the Flu






    Since the Flu has decided to spend some time at my house, I thought I would share some tips for dealing with it. . .

    1. Make Your Own Gatorade (1 pkg of Kool Aid, 2/3 c. Sugar, 2 tsp Baking Soda, 2 qts cold water)

    Copycat that you cant taste the difference:
    1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix (any flavor)
    2 quarts cold water
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup orange juice

    2. Drink lots of fluids- not sure whether you're getting enough (If the color of your urine is close to clear, you're getting plenty, if it's a dark yellow, you need More fluids).


    3. Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.


    4. Get Some Sleep- this is one that you cant skip. Besides, with the nausea you'll feel, sleep is the only thing that makes it better.
    Hugs, you're Not alone.

    Default Tips for Dealing with the Flu

    Thanks for the tips....



    We've been hit really hard this week. My 6 year old

    daughter ate about 5 cheerios today which is a huge

    breakthrough - since she hasn't eaten since LAST

    FRIDAY. She started with gastroenteritis (better

    known as the stomach flu/bug) and then before she was

    able to recover from that, she got hit with the flu.



    She was literally hours away from going to the ER.

    The dr said if she didn't show signs of improvement

    today, we'd have to take her. Fortunately, she's

    improved and her fever is gone. Thank God.



    I - on the other hand - am miserably sick....If only I

    had koolaid....I do have one more bottle of gatorade

    in the house, but I'm keeping it for my daughter to

    continue to drink.
