Anyone caught the nasty anywhere else?
It's going trough our school systems here like wildfire.
My son and I are both home with it. We are doing OK on the tail end of it as the fevers have gone. Still worried about pneumonia I guess. my son is on day 10 and still gets light headed walking anywhere. Doc says his lungs sound clear just have to keep pushing lots of water.
They gave me Tamiflu since they screened him for influenza and he was positive. I was treated within a few hrs of getting sick. I thought I had an elephant sitting on my chest the second day OMGosh! But woke up on the third day with relatively no symptoms. It just makes me extremely drowsy. I have never slept so much in my life.
We have been sick with this or that since Sept 5th. My poor son has missed more school that been in. sigh.
My friend down the street has a police scanner and she says that they have had to send the ambulance two times in as many days to my son's school for teenagers who have it and collapse due to pneumonia.
Take care everyone this is a very serious respiratory influenza virus. Wash hands often and stay away from anyone who thinks they are coming down with a cold if you can.
