just got off the phone with my brother who lives over by cincinatti, he might have the swine flu. i guess a few people around where he lives has died of it and of course his occupation and being around loads of people from around the world on a daily basis doesnt help the factor much. its either that or pneumonia(sp) with some added extra bad side perks. sucks that he cant get into to see a doctor due to them being over ran the last couple days. he might have to go to the hospital.

Keep us updated, Rudy. We're going to get flu shots tomorrow, or at least that is the plan. I think that it's the seasonal flu vaccine we're getting and not the H1N1. We'll find out when we get there. If it isn't the H1N1 vaccine, we'll likely be getting more shots later.

to be perfectly honest, the N1H1 vaccine hasnt even been properly tested so from what i understand, they dont even know if itll work...

on a brighter note. my brother doesnt have the swine flu. it turned out to be a pretty nasty pneumonia. hes on some kick ass meds and is doing much better.

Not good that he has pneumonia.
Real good that he's on antibiotics and that they're working!

Maybe a broad spectrum antibiotic?

I work for a national pharmacy chain, that shall remain nameless, that had flu clinics set up, and all were cancelled on account of the nationwide shortage. Needless to say, we had more than a few people who were not all that happy. The H1N1 vaccine hasn't been tested on a broad enough scale. I have no plans on getting vaccinated. Known too many people who have had bad side effects. Not willing to make the effort. If I get the flu, I'll deal with it. The bodys defense system needs to be challenged. If you fight off the infection, on your own, you will be immune to that particular strain. At least, that's how it's supposed to work. With all the mutations coming up, all bets are off. The old spectres are coming back with avengence. One of my coworkers had a medium case of bronchitis with a side of whooping cough. Bet you haven't heard from that in quite sometime. If you become ill, please stay home. Once you have gotten through one day without fever, you can resume whatever it is you do. Remember to wash your hands. Small steps are worth it.

zpack is a 5 day antibotic that kills the cold.

The Z-Pack is used as an antibiotic, not an antivral. Colds and influenza are both cause by virsusi, not bacteria. There are some good antivirals out, but they tend to be pricey.
Z stands for Zithromax. The generic
equivalent is Azithromycin.
