Wow, that's frustrating about your granddaughter.

This flu business also reminds me of something I read about a couple years ago-- that a flu causes systemic inflammation, and is therefore an aggravator for certain risk factors, such as stroke / heart attack. This was pretty big in science news at the time because it seems to explain why people are more prone to cardio-events in flu season.

That, and from unrelated studies, overexertion in the snow IIRC... like shovelling too much, too quickly.

Point is-- getting that flu shot every year is even more important than ever. Naturally, like a dumbass, I neglected to do that this year.
