I have been helping to nurse my mum as she is a bit poorly with the lurgy. She has had no luck this year with catching bugs and is annoyed to get one in the middle of summer. She was meant to work this evening but had to call in sick as she felt so bad and has spent the day in and out of bed. She has been hot and cold so been under and on top of the covers, so I have been camping on the couch overnight to avoid being kicked off the bed by her tossing and turning. She has drunk lots of fluid and managed a little bit to eat. She is a bit worried about this bug, it feels like a tough one to overcome and she is meant to be working evening shifts and then some nightshift over Christmas - so the worst time of the year for her to be sick.
She did use her day off to try internet supermarket shopping which was rather easy, and ordered it all by 11am and it was outside the door at 2pm. She did buy herself 2 large boxes of tissues, fruit juice and lots of other stuff to keep her occupied. She also ordered 40 cans of fancy feast - I love you mum.
