Flu at the Buffalo Wallow

Well not sure what we have but we are passing around a nasty little bug. Symtoms we have dealt with in this home are

itchy runny eyes
stuffy head and chest
fever

or the first round of family anyway....Eric and Crystal had no complaints of Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea....common flu symptoms...

I just spent a day in bed...cant remember much except i was only waking to vomit...no appetite, and all of the above symptoms also.

Melissa woke today with a high fever and vomiting along with the other symptoms above.

Due to dad's recent trip out and the arrival of Crystal from the lower forty eight recently I feel it is important for us to keep up on this...

Melissa's school reports an increased absentee rate and people are stating the itchy eyes and nose as their symptoms...

I will keep an eye on our states epidemiology web site..as of now there have been no cases documented in our state...and this is more than likely just the end of the seasons flu...we run a bit later in flu bug season here in our states thanks to our colder weather.

Take Care of yourselves...avoid pigs...and wash your hands...

I touched no pig while I was on my trip, I didn't even go to a bar! With the watery eyes and sneezing, I would relate that to the possibility of reactions to volcanic ash and gas in the air. Other symptoms could come from the common flu bug unless those who are ill wither work or have eaten in a Mexican food establishment in recent days.
