Everytime I turn on the T.V., which is not often, since I prefer the computer over television these days, I hear H1N1, this, H1N1 that (formally known as the Swine Flu) so when both my older boys started feeling a little under the weather, that flu has come to mind. Not only that, but when you check your student out of school one day, and send them back the next, schools do not really like that, so once again, my sons are both home. No fever, that I can tell. Only headaches, they say really bad ones, stomache aches, but that is all they are complaining about. So, what is a mom to do? This is what we are doing, washing hands, washing hands, etc.. I have checked CDC website with relief it is not H1N1, and hope to send those rascals back to school tomorrow.

Flu Symptoms:

* Flu**
* Cough
* Sore Throat
* Runny Stuffy Nose
* Body Aches
* Headaches
* Chills
* Fatigue
* Sometimes Diahrea and Vomiting

** Not all flu has fever

So with all that said.. no fever, could they still have the flu, do I take them to the dr., do we stay home tomorrow?

    We all had a killer cold last week. I took my little boy to the doctor because he spiked a 104 degree fever at one point. They did a flu test, but it was negative. He just had a bad viral infection. Three of my students have swine flu. We are also washing our hands like crazy and I just bought everyone a new portable bottle of hand sanitizer!
    Hope your boys feel better.
