Illness

Just wondering about everyone else's area but I live in Delaware and last week my wife was very sick.  Then I was Ill then my daughter.  Now my daughter and myself are ill again and the school has sent home a paper about a flu pandemic going on.  I have not run in over a week and I was just wondering if the flu is hitting anywhere else in the world?

    Re: Illness

    I live in PA but race a lot in DE.  My husband was sick two weeks ago, my daughter had a bad cough then and it cleared up.  Monday she was sent home from KDG with a 102 fever, after motrin it spiked to 104.  A trip to the doctor brought back a quick culture for the flu as negative.  Her fever broke and she was fine all day Wednesday so after the culture report I sent her back to school Thursday.  Today I get a call from the DR that the extended culture showed that she did indeed have the flu and that she should not have returned to school.  I teach and I have had kids in and out for the past two weeks who probably should have been out like my daugther but no one tells you this, just take motrin, tylenol and over the counter cough medicine and you will be fine.  Sorry had to vent a little.
