The Flu Bug, Impacting Life and Learning #flu

The flu bug has gotten bad where I live. So bad that schools have used some of their built-in snow days and cancelled classes so the children and staff can get better. Everyone loves a day off but this is not the way many wanted it to come about. Several people I work with were scrambling to find child care options for tomorrow as our local school system has also called off school for Friday. I got a flu shot in November. I can’t remember the last time I had it. Those who got the bug are sitting at home trying to get well.

Here’s a graphic that shows the difference between the common cold and the flu. Stay healthy my friends.

  1. I really wish you had put this up at the beginning of November – I would have followed your last sentence of advice and saved myself 3 months of a very stubborn URI… :-/ 😉

  2. I was diagnosed with the flu and acute sinusitis on Thursday. I took a sick day yesterday, and now I have complete cabin fever. Starting to feel better, slowly. Hoping to get back to 100 percent by Monday!
