The Flu

Jan 25, 2013

I kept Joey home as much as possible during the flu epidemic, but I couldn't keep him home from school, and he ended up with Influenza A. He did get his flu shot in October, but it's hard to know how much it worked for him since he doesn't have a full immune system.  He woke up with a fever and said his whole body hurt, so I took him straight to the doctor and asked for a flu test.  By noon, he was already on Tamiflu and the rest of the family (except Ava) was on it too.  He spent that day and one more day on the sofa, but we really dodged a bullet.  He ended up having a minor case and it never got too bad, and no one else in the family got it.
