Still Burning

Yes, the fever is still here. Not as high, but still here. Last check at 4 AM was 101.

The little guy tested positive for the flu on Tuesday at the doctor's office. Had we gone in sooner, it could have been treated, but how did I know it was the flu? No vomiting, no diarrhea. Plus, his previous doctor would have recommended waiting another day or so before bringing him in.

She did mention that many children who received the flu mist vaccine (yes, we opted for the mist vs shot) have been coming in and testing positive for the flu as well. It could always be worse.

Thank goodness Walgreens has ibuprofen on sale-buy one get one free.
