Uh Oh

I don't know for sure but my kids may be coming down with the piggy flu. Tinkerpot has the sniffles and Bugs woke up this morning with a cough and a frog in her throat. We have been so diligent in washing hands and using sanitizer. I've almost become a freak about it but with so many people that have it, I'm wouldn't be surprised if it made a pit stop at our house.

I actually think I got directly in its path on Saturday but it's strange that my kids would suffer symptoms before I do. In any case, I'm praying that either we actually don't end up getting it or that it just touches us lightly. I identified myself as a "high risk" case because of my asthma. Scary!

2 backward glances:

If it's piggy flu, you'll know it. Within about a day they will have MAJOR trouble breathing, severe body aches AND a fever that won't break. Nasty nasty stuff it is. I would take them in if the fever doesn't break within a few hours. The sooner they start treatment if that is what it is, the quicker the recovery. It can take weeks to get over if you don't get any treatment. Like I said, nasty nasty stuff.
