Poor Hubby caught influenza-type A after a day procedure at hospital last Wednesday, and came down with flu symptoms the very next day. Then over the weekend I caught it as well. I have spent the most of this week bed ridden. Its the worst we've been in a long time.

If that wasn't bad enough, our little Cherub has been experiencing high temperatures on and off for the past week.
Throughout all this sickness the things I am most grateful for are:
*Although he too was sick, I am so grateful for my Hubby who took extra time off work to care for me and help out with the girls. He has taken Popette to school every morning, and picked her up after school most days, or taken the girls to the shops so I could relax in bed. I know he's extremely busy at work, and has a lot on his plate. But he has not complained once. He has also allowed me to sleep in our bed, so I can get the rest I need while he toughs it out on the sofa bed.
*While I have a love/hate relationship with my pillow. I am grateful for my warm and cozy bed. It's been lovely to snuggle under my doona and rest up while I've been sick. I've spent a lot of time laying in my bed "trying" to get some sleep, caught up on blogs, and trashy mags.
* While I am still struggling in the mornings and when I go to bed at night, I am grateful that I am making a slow recovery and have some energy to get a few things done around the house, and spend some time with the girls, whereas the past few days I could only retreat to my bedroom.
