But that is a cold. What I tend to worry about more is the flu. My hazy flu memories from childhood involve me laying in my parent's bed (because their bed always made me feel better) not moving much and trying to keep down toast. (Thanks for taking care of me, Mom!)
That is why I am intrigued by Kleenex building a flu prediction tool for public use this fall. Instead of other sites which let us know where the flu is (too little, too late), it will try to predict where it is going. Nice idea, if it works. I am sure that my son will get the flu at some point, but the more I can postpone it, the happier we'll all be.
