It's an epidemic and the worse of the flu as you are are aware hit my little nephew Anthony.
People at higher risk of serious complications from seasonal flu, including people over the age 65, and children younger than 5 years old, pregnant women, people of any age with chronic medical conditions (such as diabetes, or heart disease), and people who are infected with HIV should be extra vigilant in looking for the symptoms of H1N1.
However, anyone with asthma or other respiratory illness, and perhaps even heavy smokers should be extra vigilant, because what makes severe cases of H1N1 more severe than regular flu is the way that it attacks the respiratory system. Seasonal flu is largely an upper respiratory illness, but in severe cases H1N1 moves deeper into the lungs and causes viral pneumonia. It is the complications from the pneumonia that has caused the vast majority of Swine Flu deaths.
Because young children often cannot explain how they are feeling it especially important to keep an eye out for children who are having difficulty breathing.
If any person, but particularly small children and others in high risk groups, exhibit any of the following serious warning signs, seek immediate emergency medical care:
Trouble breathing, including rapid breathing.
Gray or bluish skin color
Not drinking enough fluids
Sleeping constantly and not interacting when awake
Being especially irritable
Not urinating or no tears when crying
The symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
dangerous, because it not upper respiratory, it goes deep inside the lungs and people develop a harsh cough, breathing difficulties and pneumonia, which is the dangerous part of this flu.
I will keep you, your friends, your school in my prayers tonight...Judy
I'll be lifting you & your school up in prayer that Our Heavenly Father & Saviour will lay his healing hand upon all that are in need.
And provide with a knowlegeable doctor to recognize the ailment that inflicts this nation & the world at this time to allow that those that need to find God will find him before it is to late.
May the Lord Bless You & keep you
W_W, I will say some heart felt prayers, light a candle of special intent, along with a gift to charity at Church tomorrow.
Prayers and Blessings
