I have been a good nurse to mum and letting her rest today without disturbing her too much. She managed to make it to the couch and back again several times. She had tomato soup to ease her sore throat and lots of lemon drinks. The germs are moving southwards, she says that she is always surprised when she has a cold or flu, that each day you seem to wake up with a different set of symptoms. She seems to have become the expert on these bugs as she suffers a couple every year, although it has been since the end of March since anything real has taken hold of her.
The worst thing is that she has a set of nightshifts starting tomorrow night and dreads having to go in when she is sick, and her body just wants to stay in bed. She also doesn't want to give her germs to anyone else, so hopes that she feels better tomorrow.
