See, in case you've missed the news lately, there's a really nasty respiratory virus going around. Docs haven't seen this one since the 1960's! That's 50 years, folks. That means that anyone with kids and the majority of people in close contact with kids have essentially no immunity.
This particular nasty has the potential to do to healthy kids what a regular cold does to Aaron: start off and within a few hours cause severe respiratory issues.
Anyone else out there concerned, worried, (paranoid, totally wigged out) about this one? I'm trying to be protective while still letting him experience life.
So at least while at the hospital, he'll be wearing a mask. And we may extend that to other places, too. And while I've got friends up here (someone's little one is always here) I won't be visiting. We're getting out as soon as possible, trying to avoid even breathing any more than necessary!
And please, please, please, if you're sick, stay home!! Get a flu shot. No, it won't protect you against this one, but the flu kills people too.
And enjoy Aaron's cute mask. He's actually willing to wear it. Maybe because it's so easy to chew on that way.
