You're right, Kay, haven't seen Cheryl for awhile, hope she's OK, along with all our other peeps that are down.

I've gotten the flu shot for years, and haven't been sick for years, knock on wood.

Hope the several of you bounce back right quick.

No flu here. I had laryngitis several weeks ago. Didn't realize it until the phone rang and all I could do is croak. . Then I got the sniffles/ sinuses and that only lasted two -3 days and I was good to go. Campbell's chix noodles soup ( all I had on hand), extra orange juice and tea with honey seemed to do the trick.

Steve (SousChef) has had a really bad cold and I was concerned he was getting the flu but he's on the mend and has been up and around from the start. Since we've only been married 7 years, it's a new learning curve, and I'm learning he's remarkably maintenance free when he's sick. Thank goodness, he didn't have the flu as that will knock anyone on the carpet!

By the way Chief, for the life of me I can't understand what W.G.T.F. Club means?

I've looked in the acronym dictionary and came up with Working Group on Terrorist Financing. I don't think that's right, right?

W.G.T.F. Club

Who's Got The Flu club.

Initially I thought it was something else similar, but then saw it was from Chief. It's G rated.

I had the flu shot in October, flu in December. We were hit hard. I gave Shrek my Tamiflu as I was getting over it, he was about two days after me. Shortened his course with the flu.

Thanks for thinking of me, friends. I think I'm gonna live. LOL

Holy cow, this flu bug kicked my rear big time. Terrible respiratory distress - I don't think I've ever been down as bad from the flu as I was this time. I thought with rest and Theraflu to help with the symptoms, that I could kick it without going to the dr., but the middle of last week my fever shot up to 102.5 so I went to urgent care and they gave me some antibiotics. Still a little on the weak side, but getting back to normal.

I think the worst part of it was not being able to see any of my grandchildren during their Christmas vacation, like we had planned.

Anyhow, thanks again for thinking of me....sure hope those of you who have had it are recovering, and those of you who haven't, don't get it!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Well that's a drag, Cheryl, glad you're feeling better. Happy New Year, and hopefully you'll get to see those grandkids again soon, when you're healthy!
