Welp, I thought we escaped the dreaded flu season this year, but I was wrong. We got the word yesterday that Liam has the flu. Oddly enough, I was looking at my Facebook memories and he had the flu exactly one year ago yesterday too!! I am am so beyond stressed about all of this, but I know we will get through it.
I’m pulling out all the homeopathic stops on this one. I’ve got him on 1 tsp. Of elderberry syrup 4 times a day to help his little body fight this thing. I made him some rice with bone broth in it yesterday, but he refused to eat it. I did get him to eat a slice of toast with turkey in it though, so I call that a win.
I am also counting on help from my essential oil friends to help get us all through this. We’ve been rubbing some diluted oregano oil on the soles of his feet to draw the germs out. Oregano oil is known for its natural antibiotic and antiviral properties. I’m actually staying away from the oregano oil, because of a few articles I read online about pregnant people and oregano oil. My sweet, sweet husband is my rock, he knows how to keep me calm and bring me down to earth when my thoughts are of out of this world. He has been taking care of our little man while I try to keep Quinn as far away from Liam as possible.
For now I’m living in a medical mask and I’m trying to do my best to help out.
We hope to be on the mend in a few days, until then, please say a little prayer for our little family!
Stay healthy and have a great weekend!
