So the H1N1 flu has officially interfered with our family sphere. Yesterday, we found out that some close family friends (a family of 4 -- including 2 kids) of ours as well as my 12-year old cousin have tested positive for Influenza type A. The doctors are no longer testing for H1N1 unless someone is hospitalized, but if they test positive for Type A we assume it's probably H1N1 since it's really too early for traditional seasonal flu. So it is officially scary now.
I'm worried about Ledger coming down with the flu. I'm getting worried about taking Ledger out of the house.... especially when people that we know are being affected. Of course, I am a smart person. I am washing my hands and using germ-x constantly. I always get my seasonal flu vaccine, and I will get the seasonal and H1N1 vaccines when they become readily available. I will drag my husband to the doctor's office to get his vaccinations too. And as soon as Ledger can get vaccinated, he will. But, in the mean time, I'm still scared.
UPDATE: Literally, as I was writing this blog entry, my husband announces that he can "feel" that he's getting sick and went to bed early. Hopefully this is just the normal crap he gets every school year and not something worse. :(
