It’s an epidemic

Boston declared a public health emergency this week due to influenza.  The hospital is packed – so packed that we opened an extra wing of the hospital and hired an additional hospitalist every day to deal with the increased volume.  Luckily everyone in the Rose household got their flu shot this year – with the exception of Kaya who had to get it indirectly through breastmilk as she’s not old enough to get the real thing.  I suspect that a low grade influenza went through our household last week, as Kaya survived her first fever (102.7!) and was obviously less happy than her usual self.  But, she’s back to all smiles now!
