Wash your hands!

Please continue to wash your hands like crazy. My very good friend has a cousin in Tampa, FL that is paralyzed and on life support right now (since last Thurs) and it was confirmed today by the CDC that she has swine flu. 46 in that area have died from swine flu. It is not being reported as much anymore, but definitely still out there. I'm thinking of starting a business selling monogrammed face masks! Seriously, it's a scary thing and this girl is a mother of 2 young children. If she pulls through, and she may, she will most likely be brain damaged due to the high fevers she suffered. Very, very sad situation. This concludes my free blog advice and public service announcement. Now go wash your hands!

I just heard on the news that it's expected to be really bad this upcoming flu season. I'm freaked out because Miss C can't even get the flu vaccine until January, which doesn't even cover that flu strain.

I'm so sorry about your friend's cousin. That is awful.
