Flu update

10:44 p.m.
Shelby DOES have a temp in the 100-101 range. Thank GOD she started Tamiflu yesterday. Hopefully the fever will be the only symptom she gets! We called Chicago to just give them a heads-up and they said she *should* be o.k. since she started the antiviral so early. Please pray. Scott is feeling much better and little Miss Avery played up a storm today. She still needs to drink and eat more and has a stuffy nose and cough, but is MUCH, MUCH better than yesterday.

11:51 a.m.
This flu is SCARY stuff!!!

Avery was really bad last night (we called on the on-call Ped and were debating taking her to the ER). Her fever was 104 w/tylenol! She was drooling and just staring at me, but then fell asleep in my arms and looked much calmer. She woke several times in the night crying and we kept up on the tylenol, but woke at 11 a.m. this morning...FEVER FREE. She ate some breakfast and is drinking some juice. We were really lucky to only have a about 36 hours with this stuff...but they were pretty dramatic. Now, we just pray that the fever doesn't come back as everything I've read says that's the time to worry.

Scott is still very achy and is going on 12 hours of sleeping. No high fever for him, just a low-grade one that didn't last long.

Shelby started crying when she learned she had to take Tamiflu. There has been so much talk in the school about H1N1 that she was really scared. Prayers please that no one else comes down with it!
