So my poor little monkey was diagnosed with H1N1 and is on antiviral drug Tamiflu and an antibiotic for an ear infection. It started last week with a runny nose (me too) and a bit of a cold. On Sunday/Monday I felt like a I go sideswiped by a Mack truck (my flu) and spent Monday in bed. She was fine... another baby at the sitters was also not 100%, and then they both ended up with fever... and the sniffles worsened, then the ears started hurting and what was supposed to be a healthy baby visit ended up as an H1N1 diagnosis!
SO in the last 6 days she's been almost permanently attached to me so I haven't been able to get much of anything done creatively, let alone laundry from all the the puke - YUCK - not only from the flu, the meds!!!
Anyhow... some points to note from her Peed in how do differentiate between the regular cold, the flu(s) and the H1N1:
- if there's a fever, it's not a cold, it's the flu
- if there's a fever with CHILLS - it's likely a H1N1
- H1N1 can affect people in different ways, from mild to severe. What we hear on the news is very severe, most cases we never hear about EXCEPT when the pharmacy says they are backordered for the meds ;)
- Those people who get sick and are back to regular activities in about 4 days probably had a slight case of H1N1
