So my husband has the flu, hasn't been to the doc to confirm if it's H1N1.  Yikes!  I didn't get the  vaccine either.  I guess it's watch and see.  I've been off of prednisone for about 1 1/2 months now.  He has the temp and all the body aches, coughing, sore throat.  I've been feeling sort of crummy, sore throat, but no fever yet.  Hoping for the best!

Hopefully you don't get it too. Try to stay away from him as much as possible, and wash and wash and wash your hands. Good luck!

Hey dinky...my hubby had it a while back. I highly recommend separate bathrooms, separate bedrooms and lysol antiviral wipes. I also was very consicous of not touching my face. I would wipe down everything in the house twice a day with the wipes. Somehow I never came down with it.
Take care and stay well!

So far so good! He started feeling sick Fri. and went back to work today for 1/2 of the day b/c he had too. He was feeling much better, no temp, a little cough, but almost all better. He had a meeting he had to go to and then came home. (budget planning). Anyways, I feel "ok", like I might be getting something, but I felt this way all along, little headache and stuffiness. But not sick yet!! : )

Well, my husband is all better and I didn't get the flu.  I didn't get the vaccine either....very thankful.

Good to hear. I dodged it in the the spring when my hubby had it. Such a relief isn't it? I'm pregnant now though and got the vax to be safe.
Mom to a healthy Pentasa baby and pregnant with #2. 5+ years remission, woo hoo!
