Scott, hope you ride it out quickly with no complications.
In RI the next state over we've lost two teenage girls in a matter of a week. Really scary stuff.
I know I fear my little ones getting it. I do realize that 99% of people get through it, but 1% is 1% in my eyes and with kids that small percentage might as well be 50%.
I have to say I, myself, am scared of getting this one. I have asthma and I generally go through at least one upper respiratory infection every year (two years ago pnuemonia) so this is one that has me on alert. Since the bacterial part of the flu seems to be the one that fills the lungs incredibly fast and seems to be the killer. So definitely more concerned with getting this one.
