Swine flu

The city of Pune has been hit by swine flu and we are stuck in the house.All schools have been closed and we are taking precautions.Prisha too keeps asking me about why I look so sad.I am tired of one thing after the other.Had to cancel my speech therapy lessons as we have children from at least 30 different schools coming in and Mrs. Hudlikar had to close the classes.It is horribly scary as we are looking at everybody with suspicion. Prisha's immunity is low , so I am keeping her on vitamins and protecting her from cold.My son came down with sneezing this morning and paranoia had the better of me.I gave him all home remedies and homeopathy and all kinds of steams.He is better.God, what age do we live in, that we can't even breathe in peace.Prisha listens to my you tube videos, does some craft work and does not like to go out as she does not like to wear a mask.I wonder how long this will go on.I hope some vaccine is out soon so that we can all breathe easy.


  1. I'm so sorry! I hope your family stays safe and healthy, and that the epidemic moves on soon.

  2. My goodness! When it rains, it pours!

    I hope the flu leaves your area soon. I know the CDC is close to having a swine flu vaccine- it is in efficacy trials now. I am worried for our fall season, because they are saying it will be on the upswing everywhere when people start school again.

  3. It is really sad the way things are going around the world.I hope this passes off soon and the vaccine is out sooner.We cannot just live with this fear and keep look at everybody with suspicion.All the best to you too take care.
