Tora Tora Tora

It looks like the Japanese are launching another attack, and it's happening by air also.

One of my inspectors just called from home, sick, after getting back from the doctor.

She has the Flu.

Her doctor asked if she had, within the past couple weeks, been around any Japanese recently from Japan.

We had Japanese here from our mother company last week.

The Flu she has is one right from Japan.

They infected us, 4 in the plant are already down.

We expect it to travel through the whole plant within the next couple weeks.

One of those that are sick right now just happens to have a desk next to me in our none ventilated office.

I expect to come down with the flu in the next few days, I always get what ever is going around due to my weakened immune system from my arthritis drugs.

Sucks to be me.

Actually I think I may already be coming down with it because yesterday afternoon I was extremely hot to the point I started sweating. I thought it was because I still don't have real AC in the office but now I am starting to wonder.

Update - The inspector just called because we asked if she could get more information about this flu and she said most people that get this flu get real sick from it.


It Super Sucks to be me.

Here is a prayer or two for you. I hope you are able to keep from getting sick!

Oh, gee, Machelle! That does suck.
Some people swear by stuff called Airborne - I used it when I went to England - supposedly, it does something to help keep you from coming down with stuff from exposure at work, traveling, etc.

Walmart has it.

I can't tell you if it is any good or not!
Think positive, maybe you won't get sick.

On the bright side, if you get so sick you can't blog, we'll throw a comment party :-)

I'm SOOOOO sorry! Damn.....

I would bring you chicken soup if I could. In fact - start eating it never know it might help!!

Machelle! You're not supposed to get sick! Hopefully your immune system fights this one off.
