Oink Oink!!!

Yes, as you can see from the title of this post that pigs are in the air. Our family is all sick right now with a wonderful case of swine flu-- ugggg!!! Owen woke up Wednesday morning with a high fever, cough and sore throat. He got worse on Thursday so I made him an appointment to see the Doctor on Friday. Friday morning all the kids work up sick with the same symptoms-- ugg!! We all went to the doctor and they did not test for N1H1 but they said that they fit the characteristics of N1H1 and that pretty much most kids who are sick with flu like symptoms right now have N1H1-- so that includes my 3 little piggies!! Anyway, we have been seeing fevers up in the 106.4 range which freaks me out but medicated they seem fine. The doctor did not prescribe tamaflu because she said the side effects are worse than the actual illness and since my kids are healthy they would just let it run its course-- fine with me. So I go and get all the over the counter motin and Tylenol Flu and all the lovely meds and get home and realize I feel horrible. Sure enough, I laid down and have been feeling horrible since. So Kev is the only survivor right now and I pray he keeps it at bay. Owen is feeling better this morning but Ethan, Mia and I are still not well at all. Pray we get better soon as I have a very busy week complete with driving to San Diego to see my blogger pal Kim's son Nick graduate from the Marine Corp Boot Camp. Kevin and I are sooooooo looking forward to that so we need to get better once and for all!!!

Hope all is well with you all!

  2. I believe that we are all in the boat over here as well. We all have been sick for a week and although we are feeling better, we are not yet back to normal. We were all home and sick in bed this past Monday and Tuesday. Hope you all get better soon!

  3. ick! Hope you're back on your feet and feeling better soon. I've been down for a week and a half now. I'm VERY slow to go into a Dr. unless it is for my kids, so I'm not sure what cold/flu bug I have, but it's been awful! Thankfully, I am the only one who has had it, and praying it stays that way! Feel better soon!! <><

  6. Oh sweetie - YUCK! You know little Q-man had it and he did have the medicine and did great. So if you don't see quick improvement - just march yourself (or crawl, depending on how you're holding up) back to that doc and tell them to give your family Tamiflu. Quint was better in two days and had zero side affects.

    Hugs!

  8. Oh No!!! I hope you get better soon. We've all been sick in our house for almost 2 weeks. The boys got through it fairly quickly but Mommy and Ba Ba are suffering still (although we are getting better slowly).

    Take care and get well soon!!!
