6WS To Swine or not to Swine

The Flu has left the building! (finally!)

We never went in for confirmation if it was or wasn't H1N1... but we definitely had The Flu.

Two weeks, four victims.

I don't like the flu.

Our symptoms have run the gamut. The first culprit had a full range of body aches, severe head, back, and leg pain. But no cold symptoms. The doc thinks the rest might still come... I hope not.

The second was worse. Fever, body aches, sore throat, coughing, more fever... but no nausea. What a relief! That one got better for a few days and then worse again. The doc thinks we might be working toward pneumonia. Yikes.

Kid #3 was pretty happy the first week that they were such a good hand washer! But then Halloween arrived with a fever, body aches and... you guessed it throwing up. Ugh! It sure is nice others were willing to share trick or treating booty!

Since I can't stand to be left out of things the family is doing I just had to join in. Mine wasn't too bad. At least I was only down for a day and a half.

Hope you're having better health at your house!

Please stay away from the pigs! (six)

~just kidding, I know it's not caused by pigs! Where did they come up with the name Swine Flu anyway?

I am so sorry you have been sick!! No one in my family here in AZ has been sick but my daughter in Provo got it. She didn't throw up but she wasn't hungry for six days. (How would that be?!:-) I sure hope everyone is on the mend.

Wow, it sure went through your house. I'm so glad you are all feeling better!
Sometimes washing your hands just isn't enough.

You can be sure you've washed your own hands - it's other people's hands you have to worry about! Hope you've come to the end of your relationship with swine flu.

Thanks for playing 6WS, sorry for the super late visit.

So far, we've been fortunate with the flu of various forms. Husband got a flu shot, I can't. Crossing our fingers and bathing in disinfectant until it all passes!
