This is my third week with "THE FLU" I'm in Indiana

I told the DR that I had my flu shot about 2 months ago--"great,if not you

might have contracted a strain of the flu viris that could kill you"---"there are several strains of the flu viris---the shots only protect you from the potentially most deadly"

"Tamiflu",is the BIG THING for the flu--EXPENSIVE;if it did anything to help,I cannot say that it has helped in any way.
Both times at the hospital,the emergency rooms were full.

I'm sure I will get over this,but it sur has been rough on this 74yo

Hang in there Tom, it will give sooner or later, but it has been whipping a lot of people here in Texas, I did get the flu shot, but I also try to avoid people as much as I can during the flu season

Tom,

Best of luck for getting well quick,from an Indiana farm kid. I hate to be sick. I hate for my wife to be sick, more. I'm like you,in that when I get sick, nothing helps except time,unless I go to the doctor and get a grocery sack full of pills.
I hope you get to feeling better fast.

Respectfully,

Patrick Swartz

My grandfather on my mother's side was a country Doctor. He used to say, "It takes a week to catch it, a week to keep it, and a week to get rid of it." Hope you get better soon.

I agree..........warm honey and cinnamon, three times a day, washed down with CC and Coke!

Just kidding

Get well soon

Danny kidding aside you were pretty close my father's home remedy.

He would mix whiskey, honey and lemon juice given after a bowl of chicken soup and rice for dinner.

As for Coke, assuming the drink. If you are nauseous, drink a Coke. If it does not settle your stomach, throwing it up is a lot better than having dry heaves.
