Swine Flu Symptoms

According to the CDC, like seasonal flu, symptoms of swine flu infections can include:

  • fever, which is usually high, but unlike seasonal flu, is sometimes absent
  • cough
  • runny nose or stuffy nose
  • sore throat
  • body aches
  • headache
  • chills
  • fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme
  • diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu

Signs of a more serious swine flu infection might include pneumonia and respiratory failure.

If your child has symptoms of swine flu, you should avoid other people and call your pediatrician who might do a rapid flu test to see if he has an influenza A infection. Further testing can then be done to see if it is a swine flu infection. (Samples are being sent to local and state health departments and the CDC for confirmation of swine flu.)

Shopping Galore

Yesterday, the three of us went to NCCC mall. I bought my new dress and skirt. I shop a blouse for my mom as my birthday gift to her. I also bought a USA Sports t-shirt for my brother because they have 50% discount. I definitely grab it! Kyla has a new Barbie school shoes now. For the first time hubby bought a branded rubber shoes from Adidas. It has 10% discount. Gosh! He will buy shoes once in a year or more.

One thing I want to buy right now is a laptop. I am saving for it. I hope and pray that God will give it to me so soon.

May 4- Our Birthday

We have so many May celebrants. My brother’s birthday was last May 2. I and hubby’s birthday was last May 4. Next celebrant is my mom this coming May 16. On May 20 is the birthday of my sis in law, Hannah. And on May 23 is my mom in law’s birthday.

Last May 4, I and hubby ate at YELLOW CAB in SM. Then, we drop by at Goldilocks to buy our birthday cake. We went home and order some pancit canton and lechon manok. I bought 2 half galloon of ice cream. It was such a yummy birthday celebration. It happens once in a year so I make sure that we can still celebrate it even a simple celebration together with both families.

I’ll post photo later.
