Going to the hospital because of the flu? That’s the first problem.

In most cases, the flu merits nothing more than drinking plenty of fluids and rest at home while watching Days Of Our Lives or Judge Judy reruns.

There are people with existing conditions who cannot withstand the dehydration that can come w/flu. I know a couple. One is only 47. They get the flu, they get dehydrated and they need IV fluids, fast or they can have serious repercussions, even death. One has already been in the hospital ICU once this season.
