This mama has been out of commission. Monday I got hit hard with a sore throat, fever, aches and exhaustion that overtook me through today.
While I have been awake I have been resting and fueling my body with hot tea with raw honey and chicken noodle soup.
Today I went in to the doctor today to rule out influenza, worried mostly about the possibility of infecting my young students and family. After FOUR days of rest I am finally able to sit up and participate in life a bit.
Relieved that the influenza test came back negative, I plan to give it a go in kindergarten tomorrow (braving forecasted -35 to -45 below zero windchills). It has been a challenge lesson planning and being a mom while sick. I am ready to get back into the routine.
Going through experiences like this make me truly experience health.
Stay well friends!
