black and scholes option pricing model calculator Diarrhea: This should not be treated with medications. Diarrhea is the way the body rids itself of infection. This is a good thing. Treat cases of diarrhea by keeping the patient on a clear liquid diet (see below) for at least a day. Be sure to continue to monitor the amount of fluids consumed and remember the patient should be drinking more than they normally would to prevent dehydration.

Have you noticed all of the chains that sell over the counter medications now offer buy one get one free deals? That is the time to purchase medications for treating flu symptoms. Generic medications are fine and remember anything in pill form will last years after the expiration date so don’t be afraid you will end up throwing them away if a second wave fails to be deadly.

As of today there have been nearly 9,000 cases and 15 deaths in the US. To my surprise the highest number of cases is in Wisconsin. I am still looking for anyone who is willing to talk with me about their experience with the H1N1 flu. Please have anyone you know email me at:

    As an RN who has worked all shifts for almost 20 yrs-snow storms,tornadoes,water outages,local emergency’s-etc I never missed a shift- I also rarely got a meal break/nap or thank you!Had to get myself to the hospital and home-IF I was allowed to go home!I’ve also been told since we had NO water due to construction to use those hand rinses- not effective on c-diff and some other nasty bugs-and no one tells the patients not to poop- cause we can’t clean you till tomorrow! When there is a pandemic- I’m staying home with my family- I will help my neighbors and friends-but no way am I risking my life at a hospital.When you are there you HAVE to stay.

  2. You’ve hit the nail on the head again!

    Jean, Thanks so much for your comment. You have proven my point! I love my neighbors and I want to help out my community, and I really believe most people do, but, if I have to choose between my community and my family, my family will always come first. I believe everyone needs to realize that first responders have families too and we all need to put ourselves in their shoes and then plan accordingly. Thanks again

    Thanks for the ideas on Medicine Cabinet items for an emergency or pandemic. I have assembled and added to our 72-hr. Emergency Packs on a continual basis. In addition, a few years ago I found two large fanny packs which I called 72-hr. Medical Emergency Kits. I included some personal-care items, a food bar & pouch of water, a list of our current meds. (w/personal info., doctor & emergency phone numbers), a two-week supply of those meds. (which I rotate periodically) plus a list of prior medical procedures, etc. Now, I will add the items you listed for a possible emergency or pandemic, i.e. medicine for muscle pain/fever, cough, sore throat, diarrhea, nausea, etc. I will look for sample sizes or place them in smaller well-marked containers. Having these type of items all together in a 72-hr. Medical Emergency fanny pack which can be quickly hooked to our waists gives me peace of mind. We can then have items we need right away at our finger tips, and we still have hands free to pull or carry other items if we have to evacuate. If we are at home during a pandemic, they can be easily accessed. Thanks for all your great ideas, Carolyn!

    I was “hooked” on nasal spray for years while living in Hawaii (thought it was allergy) until I learned about its rebound effect(this was in the late 70′s-early 80′s). Got myself off it easily in only three days by spraying only ONE nostril, alternating sides each day. I continue to use this technique today whenever I need to use it for head colds. You’re right–way better than any medication you can take by mouth.

    For those stuffy noses I like a Neti Pot- rinses the mucous right out and is a great treatment for sinus pain!Gross to look at but not hard to do-even to a child.I added a large container of the salt to use-should last years.
