Wake Me Up When...

It's difficult to predict the severity of the Swine flu pandemic especially with the worst yet to come with the seasonal flu season, which is just starting. My son was taken ill this weekend with mild symptoms, whether he had contracted the virus we're unable to confirm but it's circulating at his school.

The GP advised to monitor his situation and if his condition were to worsen then he would need to be escalated to hospital. Thankfully he seems to be recovering well and when I visited earlier he was watching television and appeared well.

As a parent you have to be concerned especially with the stories circulating in the mainstream press at the moment. It's disappointing that we haven't been informed about any mass vaccination but I'm sure that announcement will come eventually as important decisions surely loom.
