Ugh…T's buddy from school who had the flu came back to school before all his symptoms were gone. As in not fever free for 24 hrs. Guess who has the flu….
At least 2 of us have the flu….what I thought was allergies on Sat morning was likely flu symptoms starting. When I got home from some errands, da boy informed me that he was sick. Later that night, I was feeling pretty bad. Dragged da boy to weekend peds on Sunday where they did a flu swab and gave him an Rx for Tamiflu anyway since the test is only about 75% accurate. Got the call later that he's positive for Influenza Type A. Yippee! Called my doc early this morning to ask her to call in Tamiflu for me. The respiratory symptoms are not terrible for me, but T is coughing and sounds really tight. I keep offering him an albuterol inhaler, but he's "not there yet." Meanwhile, I'm continuing to take it preemptively.
We are pushing fluids and both pretty miserable. So far, dh isn't showing any symptoms and he's keeping his distance.
