I went to Panama in July with my 1 year old and she got very sick. My brother in law and nephew got sick first, then me and my daughter. They said that the BIL and nephew didn't have the swine flu, but I thought it was strange that they had the results before they even left the doctors office. So I don't know. I think my daughter might have had it. She was BURNING UP! She had a 103.4 fever. I was half awake all night watching her, and when I went to give her another dose of tylenol, she threw up everywhere (I had just given her a bottle trying to cool her down). So we went the emergency room at 5am. They took her temp at 39.8 (I didn't know the conversion then). She was sick for a few days, about three, then she was fine. I only got a little sick, nothing like she did.
What I would be worried about most is the airport and being on a plane....I think that's where we got sick.
