H1N1 Part 2

Things here at home have gotten worse with this H1N1. My boy's cough has gotten worse and now he is wheezing, so he was put on Flovent. The doctor said if he doesn't improve or gets a new fever it might have turned into pneumonia. Then I woke up yesterday feeling achy and my throat was killing me! When we got to the pediatrician's office she notice how sick I looked. She was nice to check me out too. She gave me a strep test and it was negative. Then she said I might have gotten the H1N1 so she prescribed me the Tamiflu.

When I got home I had a headache, chills, aches, fever and just wanted to sleep. My husband was great help and took the kids to get some movies so I could relax. He then made me some soup and it was good. About an hour later I began vomiting. I thought I was going to die! He called our doctor and she proceeded to tell him that I might be having an allergic reaction to the Tamiflu therefore to stop it immediately. What the heck? I thought this was suppose to make me feel better!

This morning I feel a little better but my head still hurts and my body is achy. Now my husband is the one feeling sick. To be continued.........

  1. Yikes, how are you doing? How is your family? Sounds like you have it pretty bad. Take very good care of yourself. I've heard extra doses of Vitamin D help out...but who knows. You hear alot these days about this subject. I do hope you and your family recovers soon!
