About two weeks ago, the boys got one of the worst flus they’ve had in years. While the high fever only lasted about a day, Zackary and Benjamin both had hacking coughs for over a week. I noticed it most at night and sometimes Zackary would cough for a full thirty seconds straight. Just as they were recovering, I got the same illness and I can’t believe how sick it made me. At times I was gasping for breath because I was coughing so hard.
If I needed proof that flu season has arrived, this latest bout of sickness certainly provided that. And now that we’ve all pretty much recovered, I’m going to be doing everything I can to ensure that my boys stay healthy for the rest of the winter and, if a flu does strike, that we have the medications we need to minimize the symptoms. That’s why I love having a Target Pharmacy so close to me.
