You have my deepest sympathy. My wife and I both got it a week ago yesterday and are just now getting over it. We went to our PA Friday to see if it was safe to go to gdaughter's 5th bday party. Our daughter decided to cancel her trip up with 3 mo old grandson rather than risk it. Our PA told us one problem is the flu vaccine comes out in September but most flu actually occurs around January-March and by then, even if we got the right type it has worn down and less effective.
