I have to admit that I was a non-believer when the Swine Flu hit this past Spring. But now? I'm starting to think about it. I think what has piqued my interest the most is the emails and letters from both of my children's schools describing the measures they are going to take to keep our students safe. I didn't understand why it was all about kids instead of the elderly who are the typical victims every flu season, and then I asked a pathologist last week who gave me my answer:
Anyone who was born after 1977 is at a very great risk because that was the last year we had the Swine Flu. Those alive at that time may well have been exposed and will have developed some immunity. Yikes. Now all those children are settled into their
germ growing petri dishes dorms, should I be worried?
I have been blessed with healthy and hearty children, but I understand that it may not necessarily be a guarantee that they do not contract a severe case. I have never been one to panic, but I find myself thinking about this nasty virus a lot. Should I worry? Are you worried?
