Balloon Boy and Swine Flu

My mom read in the news a few days ago about the "Balloon Boy" story, where a young six-year-old boy supposedly walked into his parents' big balloon which they used for weather purposes, and floated away. After a scramble to track the device, the balloon landed...with no boy inside. The family is heart-broken, and authorities comb the fifty miles the balloon went over. I felt so bad for them, and have been keeping an eye on the CNN news titles to discover the family's fate. (I was never interested in all the news about celebrities and famous people, etc., so never looked at CNN news titles, but just started to recently because of the "Balloon Boy" as he was dubbed.)
All of you probably know this already, but the "Balloon Boy" story was all a hoax to try and bring media attention to the Heene family. *frustrated sigh* Wow. I'm glad the boy is safe, and all, but seriously? What is that family's problem?
At least the little boy is safe. If you want to read the story go HERE.
Anyways...I'm pretty sick. I have a cough, a sore throat, tiredness, lack of hunger, stuffy nose, and aching head. The symptoms of swine flue are fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. I don't have a fever, and I'm not extremely tired. I don't have nausea, or vomiting, or diarrhea. But prayer would be appreciated. ^^

I hadn't heard that sorry about the balloon boy. That's pretty crazy. Some people.....

aw. Sorry your sick! More that likely if you don't have a fever, you don't have swine flu, which basically is the regular flu anyway. You should get some vitamin D. It helps A LOT! And drink lots of water, and no sugar. It just makes it worse. ^_^
Hope you get to feeling better soon!

love ya!

Yeah I know what you mean about that balloon boy stuff. I'm pretty sure I heard B-Boy's dad declare his being related to aliens the other day also (there's a surprise:O) Honestly, what kind of guy puts his kid through all this trouble, just for fame?

Aw...I'm sorry you're not feeling well. :( I've been sick with the same symptoms...sickness stinks, doesn't it? I think I would rather have almost anything than a stuffed up nose--it's nasty! Ick!

Hope you get to feeling better soon!
