The Flu Is A Nasty Thing

   For the first time in my life I got a flu shot this last fall. Being the Mom to a 7 year old who daily brings home God only knows what school germs made me really think about how serious the flu can be to old folks like her Dad & myself. Even tho we always got her one Jim & I kept finding excuses not to. So, after much thought & hearing how bad it can be when you get to be OUR AGE we went & got flu & pneumonia shots.
   So, I guess you can understand why I'm a bit upset that this week guess what I have been got it THE FLU. Chills, high fever, runny nose, barking cough, upset stomach, yes I had it all. I was completely down for a couple of days & am still not feeling well.
   I know, there are strains the shot doesn't cover, but you'd at least think that it would have mercy on me since I just got mt first one. Now I really worry about a pandemic, as if I wasn't worried enough before. If the vaccines aren't effective how are we suppose to survive a major flu  or any other outbreak? No shoes in the house, tons of hand washing & sanitizer didn't seem to help around here. There has got to be a better way to stay well.
