I agonized over whether to get the Swine flu vaccines for my kids. Eventually I decided to err on the side of caution. My 7 year old daughter was able to get the flu mist vaccine at school. However, my 4 year old has not had any access to the vaccine. He cannot receive the mist because he is prone to wheezing and there have been no shots available at the doctor offices.
This morning he woke complaining that his stomach hurt, then his head, and eventually he said that everything hurt. By the time we got to the doctor he had a fever of 103 and he has pretty much slept the day away. Now, the dreaded throwing up has started.
The doctor prescribed Tamiflu but the pharmacy told me the earliest I could get it was tomorrow. They showed no sympathy for the fact that this was a child. I called around and a different pharmacy said they could fill the prescription within an hour. I called pharmacy #1 to ask them to fax it over and suddenly they can have it done in an hour too (figures!). I am hoping that the medicine will help lessen the duration of the illness.
He got very mad when his sister said he had swine flue. He said "I do not! I have H1N1."
So, I am sitting here watching my baby like a hawk. This promises to be a stressful night (weekend?).
