Very sad. We just got a phone call from the school department informing us.

Unfortunately, it's going to happen - kids pass on this and it is that time of the year. Dang. I thoughts and prayers to them.

H1N1 so far has killed less than the 'regular' flu does in a whole year, and most of those are in Mexico, plus they have a cure for it now.

There is no cure for the H1N1, just treatment and preventive vaccines (the H1N1 and the pneumonia vax, esp the pneumonia vax - pneumonia is what is making people really sick when they have the flu).

Our area has had some mild cases (now and back in the spring). The only good thing to come out of this is that people are taking handwashing and other preventive measures like staying home when sick seriously now when in years past they ignored the advice and got sick and passed stuff around.

My condolences to the family. I cannot imagine losing a child. How terribly sad.

Sound advice - it seems that the ones who are passing it are the kids - look at the past media reports. Teach your kids to cover their mouth when coughing, sneezing and when someone else does that.

Edit to add: We're fortunate in that it hasn't really hit us, NM, that bad - it seems to have hit all of the other states worse - maybe it's because we eat so much green chile - LOL - not to demean the situation.

I totally agree that this has killed less than the regular flu! I only posted it so others knew. It's not even a confirmed case.

There is no cure for it.

I was talking with a group of friends last night and we were saying the same thing about the chile keeping H1N1 at bay in NM. Other neighboring states have it much worse than NM. That might be worth studying.

I feel terrible for the family who lost the 5 year old to H1N1. That is so sad!

One never knows. It was interesting to discover the role a substance (the name escapes me now) in cranberry juice has in keeping viruses from adhering to red blood cells. If the humble cranberry is so powerful, who is to say hot peppers don't have something special going on that we just don't know about yet?

Oh, here is the abstract about the cranberry research. Its my morning juice of choice these days - I like it so I might as well give it a shot - even if it doesn't do what they think it does, its yummy.

Went to the balloon launch at my grandson's school this a.m. Judging by the size of the crowd, not many are overly concerned about H1N1.
