Grateful for No Pneumonia: Be a Child's Shot at Life
All three of my kids had the flu and strep throat in the last 6 weeks. It felt like we were back in preschool. Other than missing Christmas, New Year's, a few birthdays and collectively a couple weeks of school it was all so minor. No one contracted pneumonia. No one got dehydrated and passed out. No one had to be rushed to the ER or hooked up to a nebulizer or extra fluids. I'm very grateful and can't help but think of the kids who don't weather the flu so well. I'm grateful all my kids have to worry about is the missed school work.
