Oink, Oink

So we found out today that the boy has swine flu.  It's not confirmed, but all the kids in his preschool have the same illness and one of them had it tested and confirmed.   I actually don't have a ton to say about it except it's like he has the flu only slightly better because there's no sore throat.  The cough really sucks though and the 105 + fever the first day wasn't something I care to see again.  But today it's a nice 102.5.  The problem is baby girl broke the portable dvd player and he has to stay in his room so as not to infect others so he's bored out of his mind.  Nevermind he got a bunch of cool legos and stuff for his birthday last week.... *sigh*    What did moms do before tv??


  1. Ugh. I'm sorry. Just make sure that if he has trouble breathing or if the fever lasts more than 7 days, hie thee to the ER and make a big stinking fuss.

    Good luck!

  2. Sorry to hear that. If it helps, at least 1/3 of the kids in my school have had it, and so far only one kid was truly "sick". She isn't going to die or anything though. The boy will be fine!
