  • Your chance of catching the swine flu is slim. This flu is no different than the regular flu. The media caused an uproar. Think about how many billions of people are in the world and only like 500 have caught the swine flu. The only deaths have been in Mexico (except for one child in the US that was from Mexico).You're fine to travel

  • You'll be fine. The first poster is correct. This flu hasn't caused anymore problems than the regular flu except in Mexico, and it's dying down in Mexico anyway. Go to your mom sweetie; worse case scenario you get sick for a week or so.
