The flu struck our household, and it’s been pretty bad. It strips the health from people, and according to the local news alone, several of the people who’ve had it, died. In many ways, moving back home has been a great boon. I don’t know how well my family might have fared from this illness. My Mom could barely move, or had strength. My brother got sick, fortunately, he bounced back quickly. Sickness is just horrible. The mix of cost and the time it takes for the body to recover means there’s a world of hurt.
