So it’s official, my daughter started having a headache last night, woke up crying and sounded horrible. She had a temp of 101.4 and today her temp went as high as 102.4. She is officially sick and from talking to my pediatrician she does have the flu, what type is unknown but she did get her seasonal flu shot last Monday.

Pediatrician’s office stated they are seeing more of the Swine type flu rather than the seasonal so they stated the symptoms s0und like that, either way I don’t really need a label to place on it, she is simply sick. The Tylenol keeps her fever down and her only symptoms are the fever as of now, since her headache went away overnight.

Just staying calm, keeping fluids in her and making sure she keeps all her cups and plates separate and doesn’t breath in her brothers faces, etc. All we can do is be there for her and keep supporting her (and remind her to not run around when that Tylenol kicks in).

So that’s where I am at .. MIA today for a while due to tending to a sick child!

Make it a Happy Day!

    I’m so sorry your daughter has the flu! 🙁 Poor girl! I dread the day my son has the flu for the first time – I think there should be a rule that no children ever get sick! I hope she feels better very soon!

    Thank you so much for the nice comment on my post!
