It is scary. Especially since it is hitting the people who usually are the ones who can fit off these things. Young people. There was just a story on TV last night about a 15 year old football player who is in the ICU. I am a bit worried.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Just found out this afternoon that one of the students in the classroom next to me has a confirmed case of H1N1.  We sent 4 students home today with fevers. I am worried for everyone.

H1N1 is less deadly than the seasonal influenza, it's just the age most affected is younger, not the elderly.
Diagnosed with CD July 2007
Currently on Remicade, Imuran, probiotics, folic acid, multivitamin.
