2. i just got off the phone with them.....
"It's going around, call if her temp reaches 106" they said it could be a differnt strain of the flu or last time we didn't have the flu and now she does....oh so helpful they are-not.

4. I hope she is feeling better soon, and I hope you don't get it again.
How old is she? Poor little thing - doesn't it kill you when they're sick like that?

:hi: chimpsrsmarter!

7. she's 10 and we've been really lucky in terms of her health
she hasn't had an antibiotic since she was 5 so i guess i've grown used to her not getting a lot of colds and such. She's up in my bed, she took a tylenol and she's watching rocko's modern life. Thanks Bunny.

10. Well, if Rocko's Modern Life doesn't cure her, I don't know what will!
That was a great show, wasn't it? Are you a fan of Reno 911? If so, did you know that the guy who plays Deputy Garcia is also the voice of Rocko? I think that's interesting.

5. Yes, there is no one strain present in the system
Unfortunately after you recover from one your system can be weakened and make you a happy target for the next bug in town.

13. yes
different strains, therefore no immunity to the new strain. I got a flu shot in November and am just getting over the flu (apparently the strain I got was not covered in the shot).
