Everyone is Sick
So we have not been doing to much as far as school goes, we have all had the flu the past week. It started from my husband that works in an environment were he is in contact with thousands of tourists daily. Me, being the germ freak always reminding him to sanitize his hands before he enters this house didn't work this time. He began feeling bad 9 days ago and felt worse every day, he of course wouldn't go tot he doctor. Then on Sunday my chest felt like a ton of bricks were pressing down on it, and Kayak started running a fever. I waited until Tuesday to go get it checked out and yes we have the swine flu, H1N1, or whatever you want to call it. It is the same as the seasonal flu except it is more respiratory symptoms. It hit us all very much the same fever, chest discomfort, cough, headache, and body ache. However we all have to be stuck inside until the last one (Star) with a fever is over it for 48 hours. At the doctor they said 5-7 days but I read online 48 hours and I have been in this house only 4 days now and we all have cabin fever! I still would not get the vaccine, I am glad we got the flu and are fine. This is just another pandemic the government is blowing way out of proportion!
