No Crabs Friday

We are simply inundated with 2009 H1N1 flu patients. Some of them are quite sick. The vaccine is now becoming available, however, the supply is limited. This causes hardship on parents who are worried about their child contracting this particular flu and frustration on our part trying to schedule patients. It is a potential bloody boondoggle of humongous proportions (like that medical terminology?). The biggest worry is that the virus will mutate and turn into a killer like the 1918 pandemic.

So far 2009 H1N1 (previously known as Prince Swine) has spared us old geezers. It is the classic Sci Fi thriller where all the young people are wiped out and the old people are left to wonder.

Hope not.
