This past week I have gone from A completely normal person to A raging germa phobe...Nicks little sister has been sick for the past two days,Which is totally normal she is in school and seems to always be sick. Today my mother in law took her to the Dr. and she has the h1n1 (aka)Swine flu. I wouldn't care as much if I didn't have Nick to worry about,Nick always seems to catch everything that goes around.Immediately I called Nicks Dr. to see if they can per scribed him anything to prevent him from getting the flu. Thankfully his nurse is AMAZING and called him in some TAMI FLU. Nick being the stubborn CF ER that he is didn't want to take it,He hates adding anything to his daily list of meds. With A little bribery,Tami flu it is.So below are A list of things we can do to prevent getting sick and spreading around anything you might have.Its kinda common sense but I have noticed some of us don't really think its that important.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

  • Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food for general good health.
