I'm scared to death to send my kids to school next week! My son catches everything that goes around and because of his Asthma, he always gets it worse than everyone else.

 I am praying that this will end up being just like all the other "projected outbreaks" over the past few years. A whole lot of hype, with not much coming of it.

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it. Or the way it is, or ought to be. What's more important, is that we're all looking for it, and a way to see it.

I am not panicking over it. I am just taking the same precautions as usual with the regular flu. I do keep my eye on the news reports.

Thanks for the link!

I hope they are exaggerating. I am scared to death of  taking my son out sometimes. What makes it worse for me is that we live in a very touristy area so if that were the case we would be getting more disposition to the flu then what is already thought.
