is it possable to get the flu when......

my boys are homeschooled , and because of the weather we haven't gone anywhere for about a week (give or take a day) . now though my yougest is coughing like a banchie . he gets pnuemonia really easy so this swine flu has me worried. is it possable that he could have gotten any type of flu in this time period or before? i should mention his brother has asthma so thats another concern if either of them get the flu of either sorts.

  • Do others come and go from your house?? If yes then yes, it can live a while when not in the body
