Fifth grade has closed for the week. Too many kids have the H1N1 Flu in 5th, so they all have the rest of the week off.
Me and Kevvers with a week together. I’m excited already.
There seems to be some panic about this flu, and I am not feeling it myself and now wondering, ‘should I?’ , should I be more concerned.
Seems like there is a new strain every five minutes.
Miss Walnut, the little girl who came to Canada with us, went down with it on Saturday night, after the Sports Day.
I saw her there. I hugged her. Kev and she were on the same team, he spent much of the day with her but is adamant he did not at any time, hug her.
By Sunday night, her fever had gone down, she was fine by Monday, though asked not to attend school for a further 5 days.
Obviously some people have been struck harder by this, but is that not true of all diseases, the very young, the very old, those whose health is already compromised in some way, even a few who, for no apparent reason, it strikes harder.
Also, I haven’t really investigated, but, by the time this flu is showing up, hasn’t it been incubating a while, is the horse not galloping into the next village while we get tetanus from the rusty bolt?
So it’s me and Kev and a trip to Costco, ( with our masks on).
