I just got over a 5-day upper respiratory viral infection. Fortunately, it was not the swine flu. My primary hazard is visiting my father in the nursing home, which is the equivalent of going to a hospital a couple of times a week.

I'm in Texas where they closed a near by Junior Junior because a kid is recovering from the Swine Flue. 45 minutes ago I had a light head ach and just did'nt feel well. I took my tempeture and it was a 99.6. I paged my M.D. immediately. He told me with Swine Flu you feel sick immediately and your tempeture spikes to 100 and above. He said 99 is normal for you this time of day and I also deal with anxiety everyday. ( 6:00 P.M.) This lessens some of my anxiety. Hopefully I'll be in tip top shape in a few hours or by tomorrow.
