I forced them to get flu shots in September and promised that it would keep them safe all winter. And the stupid flu made a liar out of me. Cameron came down with what we thought was a stomach bug Monday night. We watched it suck every ounce of energy out of her the following day. A quick visit to the clinic revealed that the ugly nasty influenza virus had in fact found our girl. I don’t think I had ever seen her so pitiful as she was that afternoon. Having the flu shot does mean a shorter duration (usually) and that seems to be the case with Cam, thank goodness. She’s already on the road to recovery and getting back to her normal spunky self. Now let’s hope the rest of us can steer clear!
