So my sister has a horrid case of the flu. Unsuspecting me too her crackers and soda the other night, since she had been ill and needed something to soothe her stomach.

She goes to the Dr the next day and.... its the flu. Yay!! (Not).

Now thankfully I have gotten my flu shot.

But I get a call tonight from my mom. Apparently the virus is not done torturing my poor sister and she has been ill for some hours, again. And Mom asks me, if I would be willing to take my sister to the ER if need be. Maybe for an antiemetic drug.

Now I agree. Since thats what is expected of me.

And I hang up the phone and go... %@#$.

I don't really want to test the efficany of my flu vaccine that much. ANd with D-day in two weeks as of this morning -- I cannot afford to get the flu.

So heres hoping for a miraculous recovery for my sister.

I have found, at least for myself, that if I get a flu shot, I get the flu.

No flu shot = no flu.

Ergo, no more flu shots for me.



Hope your sis gets better. If you have to take her to the ER, tell her you are going to go flirt with an MD so you don't have to sit next to her the whole time!

I have many friends like that. I rarely get sick. The stomach virus I got a few months ago was an anomaly. It has been years since I have gotten the flu. At least ten. :knocks on wood: So i would *like* to keep it that way.

The flu vaccine was amazingly dead on this year. You're most likely okay.

Jeff and I both got the flu, but our little guy got the vaccine and didn't get sick (thankfully!).

Whatever you do, don't get sick with anything! We need a babysitter so we can see Coraline tomorrow!

I know, I know. I am fine. Just tired. And I am assuming my sister is better, since she didn't call and wanna go to the ER.

I can feel the love and concern ooooooozing from this thread, Amy.
