The Culprit?

J, K and I each had colds/ear infections/pink eye.
We all got over them after about 1 1/2 weeks.

J and K each got flu shots last week.
By Wednesday, they were sick again with the same stuff we thought we had just gotten over.

I have been congested/coughing since Friday, however I didn't get a flu shot.
DR's do recommend waiting to get the shot if you are already sick.

Hmmm, do you think we have found the possible culprit for this latest round of illness?

I know that the flu shot doesn't cause illness, but if you already are sick or haven't completely gotten over it, it could cause your body to run amuk and get sick again.

Directly from the CDC: People who have a moderate or severe illness with a fever should wait to get vaccinated until their symptoms lessen.

Well, regardless, this "sick" business can just make it's way out of our home! I'm sick of it. We're all sick of being sick!
