    I'm going to try my hardest to get that recorded.

    DS1 came down with something yesterday and is so sick. Today his fever is at 104.5 and he looks and sounds horrible. I'm not really big on taking my kids to the doctor for colds but got him in for 3:00 just to make sure he is doing alright. Poor guy is just miserable. I'm like super sanitizing everything, and have him confined to his bed, so that none of the rest of us get sick. Last thing I need (or need Odin to get cause he will just give it to me) is some horrible fever causing illness.

    I woke up at 2am feeling like I was going to get sick everywhere. Got up for 10 min. and then went back to bed and listened to a hypno track which knocked me out pretty fast. I was so worried that I was getting DS1's bug. Knock on wood that is was just a fluke or something since I feel fine today.

    Sorry to hear your son is sick! DD1 just had something with similar symptoms which turned out to be the flu (the actual flu, not the stomach virus that everyone calls "the flu")

    Hope he's better soon and that he keeps his virus to himself!

    So the bad news is that DS1 has influenza A. Ick! So yep, just like metioned above the 'real' flu and not the stomach flu. He also has a double ear infection from it. They did a swab to test for it and I guess the blue line showed up instantly when it usually takes 15 minutes. I figured it was bad news when both the nurse and doctor both came back in with face masks on. I went ahead a let them give us stuff for the ears and some tamiflu stuff that should help his body get rid of it faster. Either way he is still a big contagious ball of germs and pretty much has to be kept in his room away from everyone. Not that he minds since he is totally out of it right now. I guess its bad if I get it (between the high fever and potential lung issues) so the ped. said that it was important I let my doctor know that DS1 has it so there is a plan of action if I do get it. Wonderful. Now I've got everything crossed that I don't get it! Drinking extra extra fluids and getting tons of rest this week so my body can fight it off if needed.

    I feel so bad that he played with loads of friends on Friday and over the weekend and exposed them all to this junk. Even his entire baseball team between practice and a game as well as some of the kids from his Karate studio when he got his new belt on Friday. No way I could have known though.

    Got my hospital registration done online. Woo Hoo, one step closer!

    Oh no. Poor little guy. I hope the meds help. There's no way you could have known to keep him home from all his events. Is tamiflu safe to take while pregnant as a precautionary measure? It could be worth it.

    Oh wow Joy, that sucks a big one! I am so sorry that you have to worry about that this close to the end! As if there isn't enough to think about already! I hope that you are able to avoid getting sick! At least you were already being vigilant about degerming and keeping him isolated. I agree there's no way you could have known, and that could be where he picked it up in the first place too.

    KUP on what your doc says and how you and DS1 are feeling!

    Oh, no! Really hope you're able to avoid getting it! I took tamiflu once three or four years ago, and it did nothing but make me throw up Hopefully your DS1 has a better reaction!
