Lovely lovely all around

Daughter called her doc for a follow-up and was told in no uncertain terms that based on symptom progression she has the swine flu and so she is "not allowed" to come into their office for follow up. Trying to call in a script for Tamiflu if any is available around here.

And older son came down with it last night. And it took three of us to get him to leave work today because of no sick time = no paycheck if no work. I hope I didn't carry it home to Kevin or the hubster, though Kev with his digestive disorders is more of a concern. Cross your fingers!

ETA - I was vaccinated for swine flu in '76 so I expect to be the one to pick up the slack of the ones who are down for the count. Works for me!

BLARGH!! Did I kiss you on Sunday!?!?

::runs in circles screaming::


EDIT: That didn't read correctly. Let's try again--I have no control over it...so if I've actually been exposed, only time will tell. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best for you and yours!! HUGS YOU EVER SO MUCHLY!!

Ha! I believe so, but if it makes you feel any better Samantha came down with it last Weds. and I didn't see her or the grandson before Sunday when I saw you. I saw her yesterday to take her to the ER.

I am very grateful to have had the vaccination back in '76. I expect to not catch it.

I hate it when I post before I'm done with my thoughts.

You're on the worry list, all of you. Stupid swine flu. Go away! Leave PJ and co. alone!

Thanks, Mattie - lol @ the googlymooglies!

I was vaccinated in '76 so it should pass me by. :-)

Oh geez! *huggles (with a mask on)* Will definitely keep you all in my thoughts as you fight off the flu.

People at the Minotaur's office are coming down sick. It is confusing here...half the news reports say ALL flu in this area is swine flu; then they report about UW basketball team being sick with "regular" flu. WTF?? They just don't want people to skip games, what?

I hope all of you get through this with a minimum of misery and wage loss.
I am in terror of catching it. Because my woozles would catch it...so far, the research woozles infected with swine flu? They ALL died.

I'm ready to bathe the world in Lysol before it comes in my door.

I hope your woozles do not catch it, either! Damn!

The boy will probably get some pay even though they don't "do sick time" there. It is a small privately owned company, but often the boss pays them some when they are sick, anyway. He is okay for a week because I told him to skip October's rent payment to us, which is ~one week's pay. The rest of the year's rent will amply cover the taxes and house insurance of where he is living which is our "old" house.

Once he and his sister get all the work done on the apartment buildings they bought (purchased as partners with their current boss) money will no longer be an issue for him if he gets sick because some of the rent will be profit instead of all maintenance/get readys for new tenants.

It's always the tough "in between" times on money, isn't it?

We get along, sometimes making progress...sometimes not. But the wolf isn't at the door. Now, if the flu stays away...

I wish for the wolf *and* the flu to stay far away from you. :-)

Thanks....tho' wolfskin, hmmmmmm.

Yikes--hope everyone recovers quickly!

That is our hope, too. And that the rest of us do not get it.
