Flu Information

What do I do if I get the flu???

 * You need to be sure to get plenty of fluids.  Water, juice, chicken broth... 
* REST!  Even if you feel like you can't sleep, you need to be still and rest. Watch TV, play video games, read a book.
* When your body is aching, take medicine!  You can take Tylenol or ibuprofen for the aching, but DO NOT TAKE ASPIRIN!  Aspirin during the flu can cause an illness called Reye syndrome, which is very serious.
* WASH YOUR HANDS!  Wash wash wash! You don't want to spread the germs to your family!
* Don't share forks, spoons or straws with anyone.
* Cover your cough or sneezes with a sleeve or tissue

You'll probably start feeling better in a week to 10 days.  You need to seek help if at any time you have trouble breathing, if you feel confused, or your muscles hurt badly.
