This year the flu has been horrible. So many people have gotten sick and it’s extra sad because kids are getting real sick that it’s landing them in the hospital and some are there very seriously sick. As parents, it’s stressful and it is hard to know when it’s going to turn for the worse, when to worry, and if you’re already an anxious parent — it’s so stressful.
Well, we need to gear ourselves up for more because according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the flu season is not over yet.
In fact, it seems we are gearing up for a second wave. Yes, even if you and your kids have had the flu already this year, barely got through it, felt like it lasted forever. It can happen again.
Yes, even though the winter months are behind us and we think with that passing the calendar the risk for the flu does too, but that’s not the case.
