difficult child goes to a small school. A classmate/friend was sent to school sick for over a week. difficult child sits next to him. (mom wouldn't let him stay home) so he just slept through the school day. Anyway, was eventually confirmed H1n1 so he is now out for two weeks, but feels fine now. difficult child started coughing Thursday. Friday had fever of 100. Stuffy nose, body aches, very tired, sore throat. Said his head hurts really bad and feels like he is coughing up razor blades. This morning he called me at work. He is feeling very ill. Temp up to 101. At what point do you call the doctor or go to the clinic? And if you go do they do anything? He has had walking pnuemonia almost yearly. I don't want it to turn into that. I hate to bring him in, only to be told "rest, drink plenty of liquids" I KNOW that. I am more concerned over his breathing. When I was in ER the other day, I asked if they have seen a lot of positive H1N1. (the waiting room was full of people wearing masks). I was told they do not test for that there. They test for Influenza A. If that comes back positive then you get sent to the Health department. That just makes no sense to me. For those who have had it...How long does this last? There are several people in his small school with confirmed cases.
