Not Good

Andrew is really sick. Just about stopped my heart last night. His fever was high and he was having trouble breathing, hallucinations the whole nine yards. We took him to the local ER. I really didn't want to go to the hospital with him. It's wall to wall flu there, plus we would probably still be waiting to be seen.. Well, my little man tested positive for Influenza A. The doctor said they are treating flu A as the H1N1 because it's not flu season yet and there is no specific test for that stinkin' pig flu.

Thanks to a great doctor and a wheeze that Andrew had he qualified for Tamiflu. He said they are under strict orders not to hand it out to just "anyone". Believe me I was just about to use my wild card(Emmie). I'm not taking any chances of her getting sick again. speaking of Em she just woke up, and doesn't sound all too great.
Please keep my kiddos in your prayers. Andrew has to go back for an ex-ray this morning to check to see if he has pneumonia.

Olivia is much better, thanks for your prayers. So far Sophia and Bella are good.

Keeping you in our prayers too. Julia was confirmed for influenza A. Doctor told me that they would be able to tell me if it was h1n1 today. I'm sure doctor told you this, but there can be side effects with Tamiflu. Stomach discomfort--just a word of warning. I ended up not putting my two on it because Tylenol and Motrin handled the fever and thankfully we never had the wheeze. Hoping you have a speedy recovery. If it is swine, recovery time is faster than seasonal flu--that's what our doc said at least--and for Julia, who is back at school already--it proved to be true. Go pour that orange juice!

Saw your other post first. Now I see this one. Bless your heart. We'll be praying for the kids. You, too!
And play the Em card. It's okay! Whatever happens to y'all affects her doubly.

I haven't read the other posts yet. We've been on the road for a couple days. I'm hoping and praying your kids are better soon. btw - I thought there was a test for least that's what they are saying here. Hugs
