Update on Swine Flu and see post below

I saw that Totally Ready has an update on the Swine Flu coming out of Mexico and wanted to post it. They will keep updating their website so here is the link:

I know that some people will think we are overreacting or can't be worried about everything little thing. However, this statement by the CDC is pretty concerning. Please prepare your families. She also has some really great ideas on preparing for pandemics on her site.

The CDC has just released the following statement:

WASHINGTON, April 25 (Reuters) - An unusual new flu virus has spread widely and cannot be contained, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed on Saturday. “It is clear that this is widespread. And that is why we have let you know that we cannot contain the spread of this virus,” the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat told reporters on a conference call.

Another link for an update of how severe the situation is.
