Jeff...sorry You and Your family had to go through it....to the question....I think You are immune to the exact same flu right now...but with this flu...it is like it is with every other flu....it changes and can come back

I also think the media made a big hysteria...I mean...of course all the dead people in Mexico are terrible...and I pray for their families....but a big problem, was that I think they didn´t have enough tamiflu and other flu-meds to really treat so many people...unfortunately....It would become really, really terrible if it would hit more poor countries that can´t afford the medication...then...it´s terribly dangerous

I definitely don't want to catch it because we're taking care of a 3 week old baby over here and I don't think newborns handle sicknesses like that well, so we're taking all the precautions we can to keep him healthy from even the most common of colds! Jeff, I was told the only reason why swine flu is spreading so easily is because we've never been exposed to it before so we don't have any defenses to it, but now that you and your family have had it, I think your chances of catching it again are definitely lower than for someone who's never had it. And yea, everyone else is right, swine flu isn't worst than regular flu. Just like regular flu, it's dangerous for the elderly, newborns, pregnant women and those with pre existing health conditions.
