OK , since it's running rampant in my home town, and I've still got it, I'm just wondering who I'm in good company with. Whose got the flu?

I hate having to go to work when I'm not 100%, but here I am.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I can't believe you're going to work with the flu. I'm sure you have no choice, but that must be just awful.

I have to pick up a prescription at the doctor's office and then fill it at the pharmacy. I'm going to bring a few pairs of latex gloves with me.

Hope you feel better.

If I went into work with the flu, I would be sent home. Coming to work (knowingly) contagious is against our company policy.

I had the flu, still working on getting rid of the remnants, while I am no longer contagious, I am still miserable. Our facilty was closed to new admits and any visitors for almost two weeks. "Patient Zero" was a new admit from the hospital with Pneumonia, turns out it was the flu. Of course I just had to interview and examine her the first day in the building. Then I brought the flu home to Shrek, nothing worse than a sick Ogre, especially when it's my fault.

That sucks, PF. Where could you go?

I hope everyone gets over this soon. I hate it when my friends are sick!

If I had known I had the flu I would have stayed at work and not taken it home.

Hope everyone feels better soon! It's been a nasty season.

When we flew home last week, we were surrounded by hacking and coughing people on the plane, most within a 3 foot radius.

How long is the incubation period of this flu? You and your DH will be extremely lucky if you don't join the sick parade.

I hope not, because if you both get sick, not only will you be sick, but having a sick hubby too...... Oh, no.

There are few things worse than a sick DH, especially mine. I've been counting down the incubation period too. It appears to be one to 4 days, and we got back Tuesday, so hoping we're out of the woods.
