I got an email this morning from our Sunday School class… apparently one of the members has gotten H1N1 (the swine flu) and wanted to warn everyone who might have been exposed. Since we were in Indiana last weekend, we don’t have to worry, but it got me thinking.
I’ve been noticing a lot of people on Facebook whose family members also have gotten the swine flu. Normally, I’m not concerned but now with Savannah I wonder if I should be concerned.
I like to get out with Savannah (stores, church, etc.), so I don’t want to stay home all the time. How can I best protect her without going overboard? I know new infants are the most at-risk for the swine flu.
Also, there’s the question of the vaccine… I wasn’t considering getting it, but maybe I should? How does all that work? Anyone done research about this?
I don’t want to freak out, but I don’t want my baby to get sick or die because of my lack of action either.
