Be Good Now, Little Piglets

So a visit to the doctor's office confirmed that we quite possibly have (or in Jesper's and my case have had) the swineflu, or H1N1 as I believe it's called in the big world. But don't be alarmed, we're all in pretty good shape. Well, at least better than we were Friday. We haven't slept in a while and we still have the weird aches and the whiny voices (sorry about that), but so far it hasn't been worse than any other the-whole-family-sick-at-the-same-time-and-Jesper-hurt-his-back-and-I-have-a-deadline-ordeal that we've survived before. For this I'm very grateful. I'm not a worrier, but this time I've been more chicken than pig.

Tomorrow my parents will come to town and yet again save the day, so that hopefully – if all goes well and everybody's ok and I meet my deadline and all is well and Wilhelm's temperature goes down and all is well – me and Mom can go to London together on Thursday.

Yup. That's the kind of mother I am. The leaving-home-and-sick-children-in-arms-of-sick-father to have tea at Liberty's.

So if you felt sorry for me at first, don't. I'm just your regular pig.
