I have been up most of the night with flu symptoms and didn't want to go to bed because TB has his flu shot today and can't show any symptoms. I did get some rest on my recliner, but was looking forward to curling up in the bed with the electric blanket on when he got up for work.

Alas, I just couldn't settle and am up once again. This could be a long day. I need to be healthy for Monday as I have my appointment with the surgeon.

I will see if I can get some tea and toast down then try bed again.

Sorry to say, but if you are getting the flu, you are not going to be healthy by Monday. Even if it's just a cold, it will linger. You may still be able to go for your appointment, but I doubt if they will schedule surgery until you are better. I know that's not what you want to hear. I could be wrong, but that's just my own experience.

No, Carol, you are absolutely right. I've just been hoping the symptoms are something else and not the flu. I've had a lot of nausea, etc. With the gallbladder and while I am following the diet fairly well I am getting a bit of pain back so hopefully these other symptom are that and not the flu.

I am just treating it like the flu in case.

Don't you have a flu vaccination?

No, every time I get one it makes me more sick than if I don't. I stay in a lot so unless TB brings it home I am fairly safe. He has to have the shot because of his work. I do get a pneumonia shot every three years though.

we got the shot at work, too...

but I would you react with sickness, I wouldn't do it either, we are free to do it, but as there is a chance for us to get into contact with avian influenza, I do it.
No cross-mutation from me, please..

Cooking up a big pot of Sunday Ragu with meatballs and sausages to be added later. That's dinner for tonight's houseful of family. SO took today off and has been a big help.

I've gotten the flu shot every year since 1996 and have never had the flu. The shot contains a dead virus, so you can't get the flu from the shot. However, the shot can't protect against all varieties of the flu, so it's possible to get flu from another source.
