Unfortunately I have the flu

I had a sudden high temperature of 38.8 and was feverish, so my hubby looked up the Pandemic website to check to see if I had the dreaded swine flu. Fortunately its not swine flu, but normal flu and was given a special coded number to pick up some anti viral drugs(Tamiflu) from a collection point. I still feel horrid though. My hubby is starting now with a cough, so he's now worried if he's gonna get it. My little boy is showing signs but my daughter not. Lets hope we get it over and done with soon.

Feeling dreadful again!

I must apologise for my non existance on here. I have had family visiting for the past week
and after they went I started feeling under the weather yet again, got the start of a sore throat and cold again. Its only been a week since i got over the last cold that lasted for 3wks. I blame my 18month old nephew Leo. My sister and Brother in law came down from up North(Carnforth) for a week and Leo was just coming to the end of his cold but was so very generous that he gave us his before going home on Saturday...:-( The last time they came down i so ill from a sickness virus he had brought down with him that I was throwing up and going to the loo every 10 mins, Danny my hubby was the same and his mum too. Oh well these are the joys of living in different parts of the country. The viruses in other parts of the country are different strains, so when you think you won't get another cold..whallop you do when family or friends visit.

I'll just have to wait to see how long this one lasts for.
