Swine or H1N1?

Rate this Entry
Whew! Lots of people at work sick, maybe a few taking advantage (as they always do) of the situation for a PAID day(s) off work. We only need a doctor's certificate after 5 days of being away from work, and we get paid! So anyway, one of the staff was babysitting her two grand-daughters and they had contracted the H1N1 at school, so their mom and dad on a romantic anniversary weekend got sick, came home and the girls were sick and my co-worker and her husband! Nasty! the to top it all off my friend's son and his wife and their 3 month old baby got sick after a quick visit. They had to got he hospital where it was confirmed H1N1! Where I live about an hour from Toronto, Ontario they have ramped up the immunization clinics and there are lineups to get it. Bad news today that a young hockey player in grade 8 who was quite apparently healthy suddenly died and it was confirmed he had H1N1. The article in the paper would break your heart to read. At the Bank where I work, we have Purell dispensers on every desk and wicket and office, kleenex, and Lysol wipes to disinfect the client areas, and to try and keep the germs down. So many clients sniffing and coughing already. They apprciate that we as employees have families and want to stay as healthy as we can and continue to be able to serve them. I still haven't decided if I will get the needle for H1N1 and I normally and not able to get the regular flu shot and I am allergic to something in it. It looks like it will be a long winter and it's already hard to listen to the daily updates of hospital emergency rooms filling up. Schools are reporting that parents are keeping their kids home, if they have a cough and certainly if they have a fever.Let's pray that there will be little loss of life and that people will return to good health. Practice safe hand-washing and remember sneeze into your sleeve!

    I disagree with the coughing and sneezing into your sleeve. Just my opinion. Here is why: bend your arm for as if you are going to sneeze and see just how far away from the bend in your arm your nose and mouth is. For myself when I have to sneeze (I don't just sneeze once, I sneeze in three's-sneeze, sneeze, sneeze then I am done) I can not keep my elbow close enough. I understand not using your hands. I prefer and even tell my boys to do it in their shirt. That will contain the cough/sneeze and keep the hands clean. Then still grab the hand sanitizer and wash up right away.

    In South Dakota only medical people have received the H1N1 shot. Next on the list (maybe next week) will be daycare children and workers. They are saying it will be the middle of November before schoolage children then maybe healthy adults. Seasonal flu vaccine clinics have all been cancelled-they have ran out and still many who have not gotten the shot. Sad part is H1N1 is rampent here. Doctors are telling parents to take your child home lots of rest and fluids, treat the fever with tylenol and in about seven days they will be better or then come back, but that the Tamiflu medicine to treat symptoms are in very short supply and not enough to give to everyone with flu symptoms, so it will only be used for those who have other health problems.

    I've been taking garlic capsules and walking all through the flu thing and not getting it. My herbal assc. told me to take it twice a day and it would keep the flu away. My dr. also advised my to do salt nasal rinses as most flu bugs travel in the air and the salt kills it in the nose. Hope this helps you!

    We're doing the same, Kyolic garlic in the morning, along with 500 mg Vit C and repeating in the evening. It seems to be working wonderfully, lots of the kids friends are out with the flu.
