My little boy, Bexon, got a bad flu this week. It’s a nasty one going around.

My kiddo has a super strong immune system and usually burns out a virus in one night or maybe half a day.
This week, he missed a whole day of school, which is very unusual for him. My immune system, on the other hand, folds like a deck of cards and cries for mercy. Continue reading
