It seems like everybody I know is sick, or has been sick over the past few weeks. Record numbers of people are getting the flu nationwide, while many others are just trying to battle off the common winter cold.

I recently checked in with some of my friends on Facebook to see who’s been sick, and here’s what I got.

Who’s Been Sick Over The Past Few Weeks?

Laureen Brown my grandson
