I've got the stupid flu, been pretty miserable. Normally I don't catch this stuff but i'm pretty run down.

Oddly, Jazz is acting like she has a mild version. I know that dogs and humans have separate strains, but I really think we are sharing it to some degree. At least hers is mild.

Lisa, sorry to hear you caught the flu bug, I've heard it's nasty. Hope Jazz and you can get some much needed rest and feel better soon. Hugs to both of you. hugging

Lisa,

I'm sorry to hear about your flu-it can really make you sick. I know you know, but please rest and take in lots of fluids.

Given how variable flu is (it's really, really remarkable) you can certainly imagine that your strain since it's growing so well might acquire the ability to infect Jazz. Looking quickly, though, I couldn't find clear evidence that it has happened before. You and Jazz might be a case study-but that is probably not your greatest ambition in life.

Ugh! Feel better soon! Take good care of yourself!

I had the flu shot a couple months ago, and knew well it isn't going to stop the flu from taking over me... Last weekend, I was knocked off my feet from the flu! I am STILL very fatigued. Ugh.

I hope your feeling better soon. It's a nasty flu going around and I think there might be a doggie flu going around as well, at least someone told me about that today at the clinic.

Drink lots of fluid and take it easy.

Thanks everyone! Yes, definitely a nasty one. I'm on the recovery side of things now, I was able to pick up some supplements to help with the cough/lung thing that is leftover.

If jazz did have exposure, it was fleeting for her, lucky dog. Lol MJ, definitely not interested in being a case study!
