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.

My life is about my wife of 17 years Laura, Cody our boy dog, family, friends and of course blogging. I work for Blood Assurance a regional blood bank. The Episcopal/Anglican Church is where I express my faith and St. Peter's parish is my community. Grace and peace to all!

  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!
