source of the sickness

My father called this afternoon to let us know that my grandmother and four other seniors from my grandmother’s senior home have been taken to the hospital with flu-like symptoms. Some germy relative of one of the other seniors made the bad decision to visit the home full of frail elderly people on Christmas day and we made the bad decision to spend some of our Christmas visit chatting with all of the residents in the main area. If we had some fleas, flies and rats, we’d have all the makings of a plague. Now my parents have to decide what to do about their plans to travel tomorrow, while Doug’s parents have to decide if they want to come join in the germ-fest.
