I had heard that a lot of people were sick in town but for some reason which is entirely beyond me, it never popped into my head that it was the H1N1 virus. I'm not sure what I thought it was, but the swine flu was some scary virus that was not here yet. However now that more than half of our local high school is out sick with it, I'm going to have to face the truth: the swine flu has hit our county and I have been feeling sick all day. It started with a sore throat, a headache and nausea, all of which hit last night right before bed and has progressed to feeling incredibly dizzy, particularly when I move (not good for a mom with a toddler).
Paul called from work to tell me that he was coming down with something too, and as Sadie just got sick (although I'm hoping it was from the ridiculous amount of spaghetti she ate for dinner) I think I would be serious denial if I were to say that our house hasn't been effected yet. I am still hoping that Sadie doesn't get sick at all and remembering all those books I read about antibodies being in breastmilk very quickly after the mother is exposed to a virus.
I've had tons of ideas for blog posts these last few days but I've been so exhausted and now I'm starting to understand why. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow and everyone will be fit and well.
