No sugar for the flu?

Funny flu storiesAfter I had picked up the list of over the counter items that the nurse practitioner recommended and a few other food items that I needed, my prescription was ready.  I was directed to another nearby pharmacy to pick up Tamiflu.  Everyone was out of Tamiflu they told me and the particular pharmacy they directed me to is where they make it.

I did actually look for a drive-thru window, but didn’t see one.  I once again unbuckled all of my children, doused their hands with anti-bacterial gel, and went in to place my prescription.  There wasn’t a line, but I stood there a minute to wait for the lady behind the counter.  A nearby sign read something like, “How to treat the flu.”  One of the things it said was “avoid sugar.”   So I found it kind of hilarious that the lady finally turned to me, told me my prescription would take at least an hour and then handed my children each a huge sucker.  Ha ha!

Don’t get me wrong.  I really appreciated her kindness.  I just thought it was funny.  I did collect the suckers though, and they will enjoy them at a future time!

    I was surprised about the no sugar thing too. And to be honest it was more the fact that thinking of them slurping and slobbering on suckers right after I found out they had the flu really grossed me out! lol
