Out, You Swine!

Behold the tiny bastards that have taken over our lives! Yes, it's none other than H1N1, brought to you today for your viewing pleasure via AJC1 at Flickr. It looks so lovely and lavender doesn't it? But don't be fooled! These fluffy, puffy harbingers of misery and malaise are not so attractive as they appear.
First down was eldest daughter who was sick for four days a couple weeks ago, seemed to recover for a few days, and then took ill again. Then last Sunday, youngest daughter got caught in the clutches of H1N1, seemed to rally mid week, then relapsed and remains unwell. Hopefully she will be well enough to go back to school Monday.
As for me? Well, that heavy feeling in my chest and the nagging headache...I'm doing my best not to acknowledge them. Shoo piggy, shoo!

woah, that would be a really neat tie-dye quilt now wouldn't it?
aaawwwwkkk what am I thinking? Would I like to cuddle under a quilt that reminded me of what I have?
I think we need some other molecular visual that inspires wellness. Any suggestions?

ps. have to admit the close up of the flu is super cute. Almost as cute as herpes:

Wow, bummer. Somehow, I have not managed to pick the sickness up yet. You'd think with a husband who is a cop and me in retail, one of us would surely have picked it up by now...
