RED TAMIFLU

I seem to be feeling a little better today not 100% but not as awful as I have over the last few days. My appetite is not back to normal but at least I can now eat a small amount. and the headache has not gone completely but is definitely not as bad. I'm not complaining though as I have lost 7lbs since last weekend. Pete came home yesterday and said he had been listening to the radio and thought we had Swine Flu. This is something that hadn't crossed our minds at all until last night so we went and did a symptom checker which told us to phone the GP. As it turns out there is a good chance we have Swine Flu but seeing as they don't test you now we will never know for sure. I always thought that you got a runny nose etc with flu but apparently not. My temperature, chills, sweats, nausea, lack of appetite, fatigue, aches, pains and severe headache are all major symptoms. The Doctor said that Pete had to go on to Tamifu straight away as he is 2 of the high risk catagories and it is "better to be safe than sorry". and that there are lots and lots of cases of it in our town.

That only leaves one thing which is my photo for today's HSMSHS my beautiful RED day lily.

So glad to hear you're finally starting feel a bit better, Rach.
Can't believe you all probably have swine flu though! Blimey. Hope the Tamiflu does it's job with Pete.

Love that lily - it's gorgeous. The climate up here doesn't allow me to grow lilies in my garden, sadly.

Love the colour of your day lily - we have a nice orange one but think will have to try and get one like yours.
Glad you're on the mend, hope Pete manages to avoid it. Take it the boys are feeling better too!

Kate said...

Sorry carrying on a conversation through comments. So do they think you and the boys will now have natural immunity?

Beautiful shot Rach. Glad you have started to feel a bit better. Am feeling bad today, all the symptoms you have listed apart from the runny nose, but ME can feel like this so I don't know what is going on:(
