The flu is rampant here.  Our local school had 80 kids out today, including Jordan.  Yep he has Type A.  If it is in you area, and you have not taken a shot, call your doc.  Whether or not you have had the flu shot , WASH your hands, OFTEN.  Do not touch your face.  Try to avoid crowds.
WASH your hands!  If someone is coughing or sneezing and  seems to be really sick around you, try to avoid them.  Avoid crowds.  Because of my compromised immune system I have had the flu many times, it is horrible.  If you think you are coming down with the flu, go see a doc immediately.

Flu is serious stuff, it kills people and pneumonia often follows it.  So if you have had the flu and the cough remains see the doc. And one more time, WASH your hands. 

I know my friends and family think I am a germ freak.  I am.  My immune system has made me this way.  But because of first hand experience with the flu and pneumonia I do get on my soap box .

I hope that this wave passes soon and for all of you, I hope none of you catch A or B.  But don't delay going to the doctor, it really can mean your life.  One more time, WASH your hands often, avoid crowds, stay hydrated.

Stay well, be kind
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. Wow, that's a lot of sick kids and then, their family members. Since my aunt got so sick after getting her flu shot several years ago, and it took her almost a year to get back to normal, I have my reservations about getting my flu shot. So I just hope I don't get it.
    I'm not sure about the difference between type A and type B flu.

  2. Of course I get a flu shot and also got the pneumonia shot this year but I'm also glad I work in a place that requires me to wear a mask, gown, and gloves all day. Plus I wash my hands atleast 20 times a day before I even get home. At work they call me the the sterile Nazi...
