My son is getting over the regular flu and that has been NO fun at all! HE wont eat he has barley moved off the couch. Fever for 5 days straight. He has lost over five pounds for crying out loud!

Finally his fever is gone and he feels better except for he still wont eat. So I indirectly feel your pain follow.

Get well soon!!

Sorry to hear you're sick Follow. :(
I was just thinking about you and wondering if you were doing the LOE1000 this year (we can't, hubby has to work - bummer)
If you make it, wave as you go by, and eat lots of green chile while you're here, it'll kill you or cure you! :laughing:

Mazer, never heard of it, I'll have to check it out.

Thanks all, on the tail end of this nasty bug...I bet my work is not happy that I have been out all week. :(

The change in weather is coming and we all know the seasonal bugs (sick ones) come out, I hope everyone stays WELL!

If you were only sick for a week, you are fortunate. (not for gettng sick , but for it lasting only a week)..I hope you are better for your ride.
I have had the flu several times..it usually means a month off work.

I try to stay away from transit during the flu/cold season. It helps somewhat.

My wife is currently been sick for 5 days and not out of it yet. It seems to be like a roller coaster as far as general symptoms. We have no way of knowing if its the H1N1 or another type.

Since there are multiple types, she will still get vacination after this current fue is past. Well worth getting two shots.

H1N1 Flu symptoms are just that symptoms of a flu, however to know the difference is that with H1N1 the flu symptoms linger around longer and you have a fever (does not have to be continuous) for more than four days, your chest is heavy with all the phlegm, eyes runny and your body can take up to if not more than 10 days to recover unlike the regular flu which can last maybe 3-5 days basically twice as long and twice as miserable.

I'd still wait to get the H1N1 vacine.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zzy2UHwN9zs

We were told to get the H1N1 vacince once before.

The Canadian government apparently has approved the new H1N1 vacine for use, even though it only has been tried in 2000 test subjects so far and the testing hasn't been completed yet.

Thanks for the video link.

I know a few people who are getting a shot right away. I'm holding off.

My wife is doing a research paper for school. Apparently the regular flu shot is fine. It is just the first batch of H1N1 that isn't due to the same type of chemical inside this shot as the one back in the 70's that caused the brain damage mentioned in the video. This chemical is supposed to accelerate the effectiveness of this shot. in a matter of 14

Supposed to be a second batch of the H1N1 shot near end of December that is supposed to not contain this chemical whatever the name is I should ask her if I remember.

She also mentioned that the vacince is intially approved in Canada for pregnant women, and children 5 months and above. I don't understand this personally as if the shot is not good for 5 months or younger what would this shot do to a developing fetus?

As with anything do your own research into the subject and make your own decision. Our family is not getting the H1N1 shot.

My Daughter was down with the flu for a week. She had high fever for 3-4 days. She is feeling better now, but during that time, the doctors advised keeping her at home. The Alberta Heath Link says, nothing you can do. Wait it out. Was it H1N1? Who knows! Basically if you are experiencing respitory problems, severe dehydration, they dont want in the hospitals. I just keep thinking of the healthy boy in ontario, who was feeling better, then died the next day. Its scary.

Triumphgirl, I'm glad your daughter is doing better, yup all you can do is wait it out. Since your daughter had a fever for more than just a couple of days and being sick early on in the season, more than likely it was the H1N1 the regular flu will be kicking in real soon here.
It was sad about the boy, it really hits children (and some others) hard. I know a lot of parents don't want to vaccine there children these days (trend) but it also can be helpfu.

Thanks kindly. There are so many sick people around. But, like you said, the regular flu has yet to rear its ugly head. I have been fortunate so far. The day they set up vaccination clinics was two days too late for my daughter. But she is back in school and back to her preteen self. :wink:

I finally found the full 60 minute Interview. It was only allowed to air once in 1976 and was pulled for some reason after its airing.
