STOP THINKNG ABOUT IT...
I'm trying to not think about it, but I can't help myself. I tried to blog about writing, but all I can do is think about the flu.
My daughter's junior high has about 500 kids. 130 were absent today. There were only eight kids in her English class. I keep hoping they will close school for a few days. Thinking about all those nasty germs floating around school makes me worry. I want her to stay hydrated, but to not drink out of a fountain. I gave her a bottle of hand sanitizer. In fact, we all of have a bottle. We also have our own thermometers.
I went to the CDC website today. 41 states were labeled with widespread flu reports. I'm going to call the doctor tomorrow and ask him for anti-viral medicine. Then we'll have it on hand in case our darling daughter starts showing symptoms.
I hope everyone is washing their hands, coughing into their elbows and staying home if they are sick.
All I can do
is think of the flu.
I try and try
to make those germs die.
Washed hands are key
don't give it to me.
STAY HEALTHY...and write a little poem if you get a chance. Thanks for stopping by.
