First there was an enteric outbreak, with plenty of vomiting & diarrhea. The home said people could visit but on a restricted basis. I wasn't too keen & decided to wait a couple of days for things to clear up. Then both my husband & I started coughing. I don't go in when I'm the least bit ill - that's a very vulnerable population in there. I started feeling fine but my eye got infected. My husband is still coughing a fine, chesty, phlegmy terminal TB-ward type of cough. I'm thinking of raising the life insurance on him. Yesterday I was told that there were two confirmed cases of influenza. Today I was told my mother was the only one in her unit who wasn't sick. When it's full, there are 32 people to a unit. The staff must be going flat out. My uncle in Montreal died last Friday so we're flying there tomorrow for the funeral. My poor aunt is devastated - first her brother (my dad) in December and now her husband. With all this, it's gnawing away at me that I haven't seen my mother. I'm friends with a couple of other women who have their mothers in the same unit so we've been phoning back & forth. Still, I would really like to see her but now I don't know how long it will take before it's safe to go in again. Since I normally see her 2 to 3 times a week, it's quite disconcerting for me. Oh well, I must just wait.
