Symptoms of Swine Flu

Symptoms of Swine Flu? I wonder what they are. Obviously a sore throat and fever.

I went into the surgery this morning to book an appointment with the nurse for a routine blood test in a couple of weeks. The first thing I was asked was did I have a sore throat - "yes, I often have one during summer". It's caused by a post nasal drip due to hay fever.

Did I have a fever? "How would I know with all these hot flushes I keep getting? "

I managed to make an appointment. If I should end up catching swine flu I now know there is no point in calling in to the surgery to see a doctor. The waiting room and all the local chemists have huge notices telling us to stay at home if we have swine flu. Don't go to the surgery.

I thought all us 60+ year olds were supposed to be immune from it. Perhaps I don't 'look' 60.

Penny, aah, poor baby! But never mind, all you can do is be a patient patient and get through it. If we weren't so far apart I would be happy to mop your fevered brow, you know that, don't you? xx

BTW, the word verification for this comment was 'pigessim' and, not for the first time I am left wondering whether someone at blogger reads the post before coining the little word thingy?
