Just curious, how many of you, and the family have been sick?

This seems like the flu that will not quit, the only person (me) not to get a flu shot, got sick, but briefly, DH, DD, DS, have gotten sick right in row, no birtday party, no Christmas Eve dinner, and NO New Year's dinner, we plan on celebrating Friday, GOD willing everyone is well.

  • DH and I have one lung left between us! We both have this runny nose/ chest hack that has left the kids unaffected thankfully. Mucinex DM seems to be helping, though.

  • DS had a 4 day bug - a crazy one that's been going around. No one else in the house got it thank goodness. No flu shots here. I had a sinus/ear infection a while back and DH has one now, otherwise we've been healthy, even after being exposed to a bunch of crud.

  • We all have -had it. I had the shot and I was good in about a day and a half, my friend who didn't get the shot is going on 12 days with it now she's so sick it's ridiculous, if it doesn't improve by Friday she's getting admitted to the hospital. Crazy

  • My dh and I both got that flu in October. My oldest got it two weeks ago and it got so bad after Christmas that he had to be put on an antibiotic for pneumonia, plus steroids and a nubulizer for his lungs. My younger two were given the Tamiflu and didn't get very sick. My mom has it too and is so very sick. She went to the doc today and he said she has to just wait it out.

    UGH! It is a bad one!

  • I've been sick since September 15th. No joke. I get over one cold and I get another...

  • DS is sick, but its an ear infection that caused him to throw up. the Dr checked him for flu and said its been pretty bad this year & expects it only to get worse.
