Haiku for Health

Flu test negative
And the one for strep was, too
Yet fever lingers

Five days since those tests
Sarah still seems weak, puny
The cough keeps hacking

Container at side
And a water bottle, too
Ped thinks tests were wrong

Flu? H1N1?
Time for another swab set
Attitude is good

If it is swine flu
She can dodge vaccination
Happy to be sick

Tonight at dinner
Rubbing his head with his hand
Darren has headache

So it often goes
In our loving, happy home
Twins---they tend to share.

My son stayed home one day but had a bad headache with other very, very mild symptoms. I have no idea what he had. Did they both have headaches?

Oh yes, don't they always share! Especially anything causing a fever.
