Flu Season

Has anybody had the flu yet this year? It hit me hard last night about 8:00 and I had the chills, sweating and didn't get any sleep last night. I can't remember the last time I've been sick, but it's been years. I just got a bowl of cereal down and now its time to hit the bed again.

I haven't yet but been around many patients on the ambulance that has. I don't get the shots so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

My wife is CCU nurse and she brings all that crap home to me. My shot record looks like it did in the Army.

I have a son in College in the Midwest that has it bad. I hope it isn’t a bad strain this year.

Haven't for years...I'm due at some point, though. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Finally I feel pretty good today. Luckily my wife was off work for three days so I could get some rest.

I normally get a flu shot every year, but a few years back they were talking about the vaccine being in short supply and they were reserving them for high risk, so I thought I would skip it that year. the Dr. told me I was one of the high risk cases, so I went ahead and got the shot. My wife is a school teacher, now retired, and i worked for the phone company, so we both had lots of exposure. We both always got the shots, and have never had more than a minor (one or two day) bout of the flu or anything similar.
