One Better... The Other One Not So Good

It is Sunday morning.  I awoke to Carrie coughing and saying she was cold around 4 or 5 am.  Just in time to hear thunder and see the lightening.  That's right!  Carrie is now sick.  She started feeling bad last night with a slight cough.  Mine had started out much the same way Wednesday night with a cough that became worse by the time I got to work on Thursday morning. 
Anyway, I got more covers for Carrie and we went back to sleep.  Around 7 am I got up and checked my temperature and found it to be below normal.  Which is not odd for me as it is normally not the "normal" temperature.  We then took Carrie's temperature and found hers to be 100.8; she was burning up and chilling something horrible.  I went and gathered all of the blankets I could find to pile on her.
It is now about 10:45 am on Sunday morning and we have moved Carrie to another bed where there is a television.  We moved all of the blankets too and we are going to keep her in there to hopefully get rid of this flu bug today.  She is still burning up and running the 100.8 temperature.  I hope her flu bug does not take the three plus days that mine took to get rid of it.  Granted, I am still not feeling 100%, so I will probably nap on and off today while I try to make sure that Carrie is doing OK.
Stay well and be safe on this wet snow filled Sunday!
