We received a letter from school informing us that "the majority of cases of flu-like illnesses currently circulating are most likely H1N1. Most cases have been fairly mild..." My observations are that it is very contagious. Classes are 1/3 their normal size. It is a very bronchial flu, lots of nose drainage. I thought I had a cold; I think I was the first one in the family to experience swine flu. We know it hits those with compromised immune systems the hardest. I wouldn't consider Hunter as having poor health, he rarely gets sick, but he struggles with athlete's foot, which is related to the autoimmune system. Thus far he's had it the worst.
