    Flu B Gone

    The flu has hit. Some years it's not so bad, some years it's worse. We don't have tents out in the parking lot or anything, but it sure has been busy around here. Today my suitemate and two nurses are out and I have the feeling it's going to be a bad day... a long, bad day.

    On those days you grasp at anything to cheer yourself up. Like today, when I was ordering antiviral for yet another patient down with influenza and typed "Tamifly" instead of Tamiflu. (That's oseltamivir for you pedants out there.) Doesn't that sound like a much cooler name? A whole marketing campaign sprang to life in my head, fully formed.

    Don't be flu. Be fly. With Tamifly.
    Fly above the flu. Tamifly can help you too!

    More coffee. I need more coffee...
