This situation actually qualifies as an emergency. First of all, call your fire department as they have equipment that can help detect the levels of natural gas in your home and whether or not you are in danger of being poisoned. Secondly, call the gas company and report that you still have the odor despite the fact that you have aired out the house so that they can assess your gas lines and levels of poisonous gas that may be in your realm.

There is no way after airing your house for days after an incident with natural gas that you should smell anything, as the gas odor usually easily dissipates within a couple of hours. Somewhere there is a gas leak and the gas is "pooling" in that area and the stink is there to warn you that you have a potentially lethal problem on your hands.
