Do you get them or you don’t get them? I had the flu once! Chad was probably 7 or 8 years old and I thought I was going to die. Someone else had to take him to school and pick him up. I don’t even remember how I managed to feed him and keep him alive for that first week I was sick. I missed 5 or 6 days of work, then when I went back, I couldn’t make it all day for almost another week. I never want that to happen again.
Every year now, I get a flu shot but it’s with a bit of hesitation. From what I understand, it’s a bit more than a guess as to what strain of flu virus we will have, there are side effects to the vaccine, but I risk it all and get the shot. In fact, I got mine this morning so if you don’t hear from me again . . you’ll know it was the shot. 🙂
