Swine Flu and Pig Love

We have been really sick around here and HWMNBN is convinced that we have/had swine flu.

HIGH fevers (103.4 was the max for the kids, 102 for me and the hubby), bad coughs, super achy muscles, stuffy heads, sore throats, major lethargy, and major difficulty getting better.

Mango was actually the first to get sick about a month ago and despite antibiotics, his symptoms never really went away and now he is totally sick again...on round two of antibiotics. HWMNBN and I are both about 75% better and though we are up and functioning again we still have residual symptoms that won't seem to go away.

Momo, on the other hand, seems to be the only one who got sick and got better within a relatively normal amount of time.

I think this has something to do with her connection with swine...The girl loves pigs...she sleeps with 3 (of the stuffed animal variety) every night. She has one who that she is completely attached to (which looks just like this little fellow that we saw at a toy store in Japan)..just the sight of this little piggy brought tears to Momo's eyes.She is a bit dramatic, of course, but I think she believes the "piggy's" made her better.

Forget Antibiotics, maybe I should get Mango a stuffed piggy to sleep with too...


  1. sounds like the flu to me! Swine or regular - the flu is the flu and it SUCKS! Hope your at 100% soon!

  2. maybe so!... hope all you guys get to feeling better soon!

  3. Sleeping with a "stuffie" is healing in itself.

    I hope everyone is back to being themselves very soon.

  4. Hope you guys feel better soon! Being sick is the worst!

  5. wow I bought that stuff pig 10 year ago in Tokyo and now I need to find a replacement... what was that toy store ???
