Home Health Care

So I got off work Wednesday night thinking that "I have 7 days until I have to go back!" Life was good. I got my first positive influenza swabs from patients, so flu season is starting...very busy. I get home and my lovely wife Chris is hacking away. Thursday, she is bedridden and Ben is coughing and funning fevers over 103. Chris has been pretty sick since, although started to turn around yesterday. Still hacking and sore throat. Ben's fever left Saturday, but still he coughs. Andrew is coughing and Eli has a runny nose.

The life of a nurse is never over, but it does remind me of Dwight Schrute's take on health care:

In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, 'Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me. I'm dead.' Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion. You're dead.
