Sickness in the Bunker

GrumpyCrazyUncle's fallen under the Zombie bus. Sore throat, coughing and general malaise (great word, ain't?)

He's staying in bed as long as possible this morning. Babysitting baby isn't coming cause mom and pop are skeert of us. Is it the-dun dun duuuuunnnn-H1N1? Could be. He does work in an ER in southern IN, one of the first places in the country to get the "shot". He got the regular flu shot already but it only covers specific varieties, not all. His hospital didn't offer the H1N1 shot to it's employees. strange. Or should I say, cheap. Am I worried about getting it too? Nah. If I do, I do. I HATE  the hype over this flu. Yes, we should be aware. Yes, we should be good stewarts of our bodies and health. NO! We shouldn't panic, hide, run, talk incessantly and freak about ANYTHING!!  Life's too short. Take care. Be smart. Eat right. And change your underwear before you leave the house.

  1. There are 2 types of immunization for H1N1. The squirt up the nose and the regular injection. They just started getting the squirt type in Tuesday and several people got it. My age group needs the shot, which isn't available yet. I couldn't have taken it if I'd have wanted to because I was already feeling sick Tuesday anyway.
    I lose. Oh well.
