It's not the Swine Flu*

But there's sickness at our house. It's been a pretty miserable couple of weeks, with one after the other of us getting sick, including Conan. He had his first ever fever, cough, and runny nose last week, and he didn't like it very much. We had a couple very bad nights. It's scary enough to have a sick baby without Swine Flu hysteria sweeping the nation, but luckily he got over it pretty quickly. Hurrah for breastmilk and the transference of antibodies! He does still have a lingering cough, but he seems to feel good and not be bothered by it too much. Us adults have fared much worse, probably because we are also trying to work, keep house, and care for baby between coughing fits. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired.

*Seriously, it's not. We got tested - it's a virus, not an influenza virus but one that causes "influenza-like symptoms" which are just plain awesome.
