On the mend

We have been blessed to have this influenza thing easy with only Jason and Diego suffering real symptoms, and all of us on Tamiflu to treat/preempt the flu. Poor Diego had some chest aches that gave all of us a scare, but after a chest x-ray and EKG, all was found to be normal and we are on the mend, looking like doctors courtesy of AF Hospital's mandatory face mask policy . No lingering aches or pains to speak of, except for our stunned pocketbook after the expense of Tamiflu ($87 x 5 people = ouch!) and you can bet we will be getting a bill from the hospital for the x-ray and EKG, but we're not too upset since you can't really put a price on a health.

So all in all: we are fine, but I wish we would at least get Pandemic '09 shirts or something cool to show for it!

Heck yea!! They should be giving those shirts out... but since they probably won't i'd suggest makeing them yourself, cotton T's and Puffy Paints are always in fashion:)

Making your own shirts would be something fun to do while you're quarantined and all... :) I love that you're so upbeat even during illness, and financial woes that the hospital inevitably brings. Just securing in my mind that you really are as amazing as I already knew you were.

Glad to hear you are keeping things on the up. I have some great news, hospitals and Dr.'s will wait for money as long as you start giving them something! We agree, being healthy is so very important.
Love you guys- "It's just money", that is my new favorite quote. =)

Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.
