 I think my youngest son has the flu.  He is really sick this morning coughing and fever. He says he hurts all over. He looks awful.

The last thing we need is the flu going through the house with the baby coming any time.  I don't want the baby exposed.  I also don't want to have to labor and deliver with the flu.  Omg, what a nightmare.

 Cool stuff since the flu can kill newborns.

did you get the family a flu shot?

i know it doesn't fully protect people but it would be a added benefit, especially so close to having a baby being born.

Have everyone down Emergen-C everyday! That stuff is freaking awesome! It really does keep sickness away, wish I remembered to take it though. I'm over here coughing my lungs up because my kid got me sick.

The flu with your surgical conditon plus a baby.. NOT good. :(

start chowing down some vitamin c - the cold and flu season has been particularily bad this year - while ds and i have never fully recovered, i have had intermitten cough and sniffles for months, ds is struggling with his tonsils and stupid insurance rules (grrr. - they postponed his surgery since the antibiotics cleared up the infections - what a fight) .. im just ready for summer already and enough of these gross winter germs
