Yes, Fairy Lu, your aunt is getting really old. Sorry to hear she's so sick. I remember my aunt Molly was in her ninety's and she'd gone blind. She developed cancer and refused treatment and didn't tell anybody. It was sad for awhile. I thought it particularly sad because she didn't believe in an afterlife. She had no idea where she was going.

Hi Lu,
Unfortunately the flu jab doesn't cover all strains of flu and colds.
I hope she feels better very soon.
Has she been to her GP?
Here for you both.
Take care X

Hello Lu. Good evening.
My gran always had a cold after getting her flu jab. The flu jab, I think, is only to protect people from the strain of flu prevalent that year. For weeks after it my gran would have a sniffle and sometimes a sore throat, but she never contracted the flu. And she always recovered. I hope all 3 of you are well x
