I love maps. I'm going to keep checking on the national flu map this spring and waiting for the day it turns all green. Since my preemie girls are still extremely small for their age and haven't been exposed to many bugs, and suffered miserably from their last round of colds, we don't want to take them to the YMCA day care until flu season is over. Even if it is free. Call me overprotective, tending sick kids for two weeks straight is a lot tougher than one swim workout! The last time that they both got sick they didn't even touch any other kids, they just climbed on the baby rides at the mall and that did them in, one after the other.
At least we're not underneath the purple stuff! Or worse yet, the blue or yellow stuff!!
