Swine Flu? H1N1?

This year the Swine Flu took on the new name of H1N1. I had heard of Swine Flu before, but it was never in the news for long. This year is different, and now H1N1 is ALL OVER the news. And it’s especially scary now that it’s prevalent in RI, and both Eric and Christy are running fevers. As I write this, I’m sitting in Eric’s room while he tries to get some sleep. Christy is doing the same in her room. Mom is downstairs now, taking a break from being the primary caregiver. I’m a little tired myself; I was up with Christy this morning at about 4am. The coughing was too much for any of us to take, so we figured we might as well head downstairs. It’s now about 5pm, and we’re hoping they’re both down for the night now. It’s been scary going, but after calling their friends’ parents (we had to cancel their party today), we learned that nearly ALL of their classmates have gone through the same thing. So apparently we’re not alone in getting a good scare. I’ll be glad when this is over.
