The Swine?

So I have heard all the hype and news about the H1N1 (I call it "The Swine") circling around. I haven't really seen it at our school and I have, surprisingly, stayed healthy. Some schools have had 60-100 students out sick. While visiting my Grandpa Bill in the hospital today, we were watching the nightly news. (I haven't had time or been around a tv during the news to watch it in awhile). The story I saw was about a few middle school and elementary school aged kids who had been hospitalized with The Swine. One boy was in a coma for 3 weeks, another for 1 week, and an 8th grade girl even died. I was shocked! I had heard of a few people who died, but didn't know it was now a common occurence. I thought to myself..." I don't even know the symptoms of H1N1. How will I know if I, or someone else, has it?"

So tell me, what are the symptoms of H1N1?

Do you know of someone who has had or has H1N1? Tell me about it!!
