Flu!!!

I went home early Friday as I was feeling ill. As soon as I got home, fever, chills, body ache, etc. yep, it’s the flu. And Steph fell on Saturday. I am finally feeling normal aside from a cough and sore throat, pain in my chest and ribs from coughing.
Tomorrow is the first day at work for the new year, and a one day payroll. I have to be there. Steph is better off and on today, so I’m hoping she can go to the school break program. Otherwise, she has to come with me. Yay, sick kid in the office.

oh, no, my DH and I were ill over the week-end. Fortunately it was pretty mild. 

I hope you guys are feeling better.

I think North America has it.  Many people I know are sick with the flu from all over.

Where I live there were at least 22 confirmed cases Wednesday alone.

No, we don’t do flu shots. Last flu I got was probably 18 years ago.

Even if you did do the flu shot, this year it is only about 10% effective. The prediction of the strain was off.
