Yuko was diagnosed today with influenza. It’s a big problem right now in Japan, there’s a big warning, and it finally hit home. The strange thing is that I was sure that I would be the one to bring it home, since I’m in contact with so many kids every week, and a good number of them have been absent in the past few weeks because of it. The thing with influenza is that it’s highly contagious (Yuko could have gotten it from anywhere), and I just hope that I’ll be able to avoid it.
