The best way I personally could have avoided the flu would have been to avoid my germy little granddaughter when she came to visit. But alas, we both came down with it the day after she went home. This season’s flu is a miserable, painful experience and I urge everyone to take whatever precautions they can to avoid it.
I’d had a flu shot but my physician told me that didn’t seem to make much difference this year. 8-[ (He also declined to give me a refund on the cost of my apparently useless flu shot!) Now I am recovering and have spent $100+ on medicine. (I’m no longer at death’s door but maybe out on death’s porch or in death’s driveway!)
