How do you know if you have Swine Flu?
So, my weekend away was wonderful! I will post about it another day....
It was wonderful until I returned home.
Flying home sunday night I had an annoying cough which continued all night long.
Monday the cough got worse which sent me into coughing fits that I couldn't catch my breath after. I called Swift Jim at work & he promptly came home. Mid afternoon monday we called an ambulance as I couldn't breath properly. That was scary!! Turns out I was just hyperventalating. Went to the GP for a check up, but got the all clear as I hadn't had any fevers.
Monday night we headed to the hospital as the fevers started. Got swabbed and went home. Let me tell you, nose swabs are NOT fun!
Tuesday felt rotten all day. Wednesday, still felt rotten. Got a call from QLD Health lateish on wednesday afternoon confirming that infact, yes I do have Swine flu!! So we are all in quarentine until I am better. Ella is starting to show similar syptoms though, so we will have to wait her out too. That is unless the boys get it too!! Oh I hope not!
So today I am feeling a bit better, although I am fairly sure I cracked a rib during one of my coughing episodes last night so that is causing me some pain.... I will however live, that is a positve thing...
I think I need to get a shirt printed for Itty Bitty that says...
I survived Parvo Virus
