Swine Flu.........

So I walked in to work yesterday to hear that the Swine Flu has hit my hospital!!! Grrrrrrreat.. What a way to start off a work week!!
It doesn't mean that my floor will get hit with it, but if some of my kids come through the ER and people infected with the Swine Flu go to the ER it's apossibility of it hitting my floor.. And you know me..... I tend to be a freak with things like that! I was worried last week about contrating the Swine Flu and now it's in my hospital!!!
I see a ton of handwashing in my future and lots of Handsanitizer.... As soon as I came home from work yesterday I scrubbed myself from top to bottom in the shower with hot hot hot water and LOTS of soap!!! I also ran right to the washer and washed all of my clothes!!! Hey, you can't be too careful, right?
what's the deal with the Swine Flu in your area? Are you concerned about it?
I know I am!!!!

Yikes! Good luck! We only have one case in NC and it isn't anywhere near me!

Considering if I contracted it, it wouldn't be any worse than getting any flu-NO, I'm not worried about it. That's what most people forget about, or don't know. The big deal about this is that it is the first time the flu virus has spread from pigs to humans and is also spead form human to human contact. That's why it is a big deal. People-IT'S THE FLU. Sure, there has been fatalies, but that's with any flu virus, peole die from the flu all the time. A healthy 15 yr died from Influenza A just this year at my kid's school. If you din't freak out about the seasonal flu season, why freak out about this?

Yikes! Justin's assistant just got back from Mexico. I never get involved with his work but when it came to being that close to swine flu I freaked. I gave him a choice of telling her to take a few extra days off of work to make sure she didn't have it or I would be moving into my parents' house for a week until we knew for sure no one was contagious! Luckily everyone was okay. I know it isn't a fashion statement but masks are supposed to keep it from transmitting. Good luck and stay healthy!

Scary! My husband was working in the airport here and he saw tons of people wearing masks. I don't really use public transportation since I work for home so I guess I'll be fine. :)

Scary! I hope things are OK at the hospital and that you and your students are still completely healthy!

The swine flu hasn't hit my state, oddly enough, so I'm not really worried. But if/when it does, I'll be on the streets covering it, and that freaks me out.
