We Are Not Immune

This past week was an adventure, to say the least. We’re pretty sure my husband contracted the swine flu (don’t worry, he’s recovered now.) When he went to the doctor they gave him a face mask, told him to stay home and said there was basically nothing else they could do for him. They didn’t even give him a blood test to confirm because so many people were coming into the clinic with the same symptoms.

My baby seemed to have a cold for a day or two. I was worried he had caught something from Eric, but all he had was a clear runny nose. It disappeared and he never seemed to notice. He was still as playful and happy as ever!

I came down with something, but I’m not sure if it’s a milder version of what Eric got or something completely different. Needless to say, we’ve been going through antibacterial stuff like crazy and on Sunday afternoon we disinfected the entire house. I am beginning to feel better. Mostly I’m just exhausted considering our dear little one woke up every hour, on the hour, last night. Not sure what THAT was all about, but considering he has been asleep now for three hours, I’m assuming it’s not going to be a repeat night tonight.

The moral of the story is… the swine flu is not as sensational as I suspected; a lot of people are getting it. But, it’s also not as bad as the media would like you to think. As the doctor told Eric, for most people, it’s a mild illness.
