No, we're not sick here - at least not yet. But seemingly the flu is running rampant at A's school - they've had 15% absentee rates yesterday and today. That's more than enough to warrant notifying the state and the parents, so we got a lovely letter home today - reminding us to cover our mouths when coughing, wash our hands and for heaven's sakes, stay HOME when sick.
At this rate, we may not need a vaccine by the time it finally arrives next month or so. I hope we don't get sick, but now I'm seeing that they are recommending reserving Tamiflu for people at higher risk of complications (which none of us are). A's teacher says that many of the kids are being out for 3-5 days.
I'm beginning to think that making up a batch of chicken soup and portioning it up in the freezer wouldn't be a bad idea...
