I knew that it was a matter of time before one of us got the flu...the swine flu! Kaylyn was absolutely fine yesterday. She was her normally talkative self. But this morning when I went to wake her up for school she was very whiny. She went to bed at a decent hour (7:45) because Grey's Anatomy was coming on last night and I had to watch it in peace...I know, I am bad. So anyway she got plenty of sleep but very ill this morning. She started complaining that she didn't feel good so I did the mommy thing and felt her forehead. Yup! She was burning up. I got out the thermometer and it read 103.2. Yikes! I looked into her eyes and could tell she really didn't feel good so I just let her lay there and watch TV. I emailed her teacher to let her know she wouldn't be at school today and then waited around until 8 to call and make an appointment.
I didn't want to go into the weekend with this high of a fever. So I got an appointment for 10:30 and off we went. We had to sit a little while because our normal doctor wasn't in today. So I got to choose from 7 other doctors...of course I choose the one that was running behind! He came in and checked her out and ordered a strep test and flu test. They swabbed her throat and then her nose and she didn't like either. We had to wait about 20 more mins for the results and sure enough it was the swine flu.
The doctor said to give her tamiflu and keep her hydrated and give her motrin for her fever. So that is what we are doing...I am trying to get her to take a nap but its not working. I need a nap so bad too! However we have made a pallet in the floor and we are watching Phineas and Ferb on the Disney Channel!
Now lets hope that Kevin and I don't get it too!
