PORTER

And at this stage had you been aware that there was anything unusual going on in Mexico?


HABDITCHES

Oh not at all, no nothing had been mentioned at all. I think it's not unusual for a lot of people to share a bug on a cruise. And then this past weekend my daughter, who's just turned 15, in fact it was her 15th birthday, she started with the same kind of symptoms - the headache and feeling nauseas and the heavy cold and backache, that sort of thing - and at the same time the news was breaking about the swine flu epidemic in Mexico. And we began to think - well this looks a bit suspicious. And by Monday morning I'd decided we really should call the local surgery and tell them and let the health professionals take the decision about whether this was something serious or not.

And they responded quite seriously didn't they.


HABDITCHES

I was quite taken aback at the swiftness of the response really and how seriously it was taken. Our GP came round, having been told to take tests, an extensive range of tests on us both, so he came round, complete with face mask and protective apron and did a whole battery of tests on us, which were sent off to Bristol to be tested and we were told we'd get the result hopefully later that day.

And in the meantime were you to remain in the house?


HABDITCHES

Yes, yes we had to remain isolated in the house, not answer the door to anybody and just stay put until we got the results.
