No Pigs were Harmed in the Making of this...

Flu!

I looked it up, and the swine flu (H1N1) has the following symptoms:

  • fever, which is usually high, but unlike seasonal flu, is sometimes absent
  • cough
  • runny nose or stuffy nose
  • sore throat
  • body aches
  • headache
  • chills
  • fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme
  • diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu
I am pretty sure that it was a regular, run-of-the mill flu that I had. Ray is starting with the sore throat now. Oh happy day.

And yes, I am pretty sure I am NOT pregnant either. The 9 month version of the "flu" generally doesn't involve a sore throat and achiness. But thanks so much for asking.

glad you are feeling better! I hate Ray is getting it but at least it doesn't sound like the swine flu (or the flu that ends in a birth- LOL)!
