Experts say radical measures won't stop swine flu

    Look, I've had the dreaded swine flu, and so did my kids.  I'm still here, and so are they.  It's really no different than any other flu, it just carries other symtoms that you need to be aware of.  In my case I got a bad sore throat, a bad cough and my sinuses were draining down my throat.  My doctor told me that as long I stayed on top of it I'd be fine.  I just drank a ton of Gatoraide, took Motrin to keep the fever down and made sure that the mucus from my sinuses didn't get in my lungs.  My fever was gone in 4 days and I was living back in Glorytown.  My kids were pretty much the same.

    My kids have had the "flu" but neither were tested.  Unfortunately, both of theirs turned into pneumonia or bronchitis.  One lives at home, the other at college. It was a longer haul because the pneumonia turned up about 10 days after they'd "recovered" from the flu.  My hubby & I did not catch it (whew)!  What ever was going around at our middle school has run its course.  The clinics have slowed back down to a normal pace.  The media seems to be pumping it up.
