Well, she's positive. That's right, our own little Swine Flu infected girl. Poor thing, she woke up crying with a fever and terrible headache. After a few hours she told me that her spine felt like it was going to explode (I'm guessing body aches). Then she had to endure the Swine Flu test where the respiratory therapist "sucked out part of her brain!"
But, I think Colby may be suffering more than that! He is mortified that someone he is related to has Swine Flu. After crying for an hour he asked for antibacterial soap and face masks. Today I was holding my sick baby and she kept breathing on me and kissing my cheek. I finally had to say, "Cate, you know we love you, but..." At which point Colby broke in, "You're going to give all of us Swine Flu and you could very well kill one of us!" I don't know why, but for some reason all of my children are dramatic and have a tendency toward over-reaction.
So, if you don't see us for awhile you know why!
P.S. I'm driving my kids crazy with my Swine Flu song. I can't help it, whenever I say "Swine" I think of Charlotte's web, you know the song, "Fine Swine, wish he were mine. Zuckermans famous Pig." Here's my version: "Fine Swine, wish it weren't mine. The H1N1 flu....." I have nothing to say in my own defense. That's just how my brain thinks!
