Flu Shots

Great work Katie and Sean, I am still working on mom and dad to get their flu shots especially because it is indicated by the CDC for the following reasons: Anyone who wants to prevent the spread of the flu to friends and family... If that doesn't get you then it is also indicated for anyone over 50, as well as anyone who smokes especially since they are at higher risk of it developing into a serious pneumonia. Anyways to update everyone, today we had new guys in the CVICU today. This one had to have half of his lungs removed because he got lung cancer from smoking. Yes, lung removal fits into open heart surgery because they have to crack open your chest and, man, do those wounds look painful when they have them stapled back up. Just thought I would update everyone... no underlying thoughts here or anything. Have a lovely weekend!

P.S. They saw through the bone.
