The fever started last night. Lethargy followed. Thankfully cuddles did too.
I took Lily to one of the 5 or 6 "urgent" care centers that we have around town...this one chosen because we could check in ahead of time and they didn't have a long wait. "Come in at 8:30 and we'll be able to see her right away," they said. Then they called me at 8:15 letting me know they were actually ready for her then. Great, I thought...we'll be on Tamiflu in no time. Of course when we got there, we ended up waiting for over an hour in a room full of feverish coughing people. Ugh.
One very scary nose swab later, she was diagnosed with H1N1 Type A Flu. She and the rest of the town I'm pretty sure... 1/3 of her preschool class, along with the teacher, included.
They prescribed Tamiflu for her and Relenza for me, only after I paid an additional copay for myself...which seemed ridiculous. Nothing prescribed for Jerry and Jade. Guess they are just sitting ducks...or sitting pigs, rather.
I'm pretty sure one call to our pediatrician will have that rectified though.
Has the swine flu made you whine yet?
