has the flu (influenza, stomach bugs, 12-24 hour, anything GI) been going around your area yet?

a nasty 12-24 hour bug has been going through our preschool, but only one of my kids has had it.

  • influenza is NOT a stomach bug. Influenza is a respiratory virus.

    That being said it is not yet going thru our area, but apparently, bacterial pneumonia is

  • IDK what exactly everyone in my office had, one girl went to the doc and it was the flu...but no one else has insurance so no one else went...but they all had similar symptoms, safe to assume its the same thing! But so far there are only two of us who havent gotten it! Im definitely keeping my fingers crossed. I can not afford to get sick like that!
