Beware of Seasonal Flu!

Seasonal flu is raging through Maryland making emergency rooms so much crowded, health officials say.
I am very much concerned and highly worries me of my husband. Last year, he got the "bug" and it was very bad because I got it too! :( I have been telling him to be extra careful in safeguarding his health.

Anyway, as I was reading the paper the other day, I saw some tips from the experts:

"The flu is different from a cold. It usually comes on suddenly, and symptoms may include high fever, headache, fatigue, dry cough, sore throat, aches, and stomach symptoms.

  • Get a flu vaccine.
  • Stop the spread of germs with steps like frequent hand-washing and covering coughs and sneezes.
  • Take anti-viral drugs if your doctor says you need them.

I had the germs and I was ill for a few days. Thanks be to God I'm well now. Hubby had it too but he seems doing okey now. We can only thank the Lord for that.
