Could it be swine flu?

DD (13) has sore throat, cough, aching legs- no tea last night but has had porridge this morning. She feels hot, but as I don't possess a thermometer, don't know exact temp.
She's had calpol tablets, and is tired but not "poorly" IYKWIM.
Is currently asleep.
Should I just see how she goes today?

Yup. If it's swine flu it'll get worse. Much worse. If you are thinking of getting Tamiflu she needs to start it today.

Don't think it is- she felt much better after her sleep, and has perked up.
Mind you, there is always tomorrow.

And yes the next day she was bad. But Tuesday- a different girl. So not swine flu.
However ds went down ast night with temp (39.8), hallucinations, cough, sneezing- today he's still the same- temp down to 39.3, but not ill IYKWIM.
I'll see how he goes tonight.
God I'm sick of it.
