Hooray for Tamiflu!

Haley has been taking Tamiflu for her Swine Flu since Friday, and it really made a difference pretty quickly. She seemed to feel a LOT better yesterday. She still had a bit of a fever yesterday afternoon, but only around 100 - a big improvement from the 104-105 we'd been seeing. Assuming her temperature stays normal today, she'll be able to go back to school tomorrow. Not bad at all, really.

Preston has come down with the virus now. He's the one with the crazy-high temperatures. But he will get started on Tamiflu once the pharmacy opens today. I'm assuming it will work just as well for Preston as for Haley.

The rest of us are still healthy. And according to the kids' doctor, anyone in our family who was going to come down with the flu would have been sick by Sunday night. So Aaron and Brekken and I may have been lucky enough to miss this one. We were told that as long as we didn't feel ill and weren't running a temperature, we were fine to go about our daily lives. So I'm at the office today. Where I expect I will be shunned and asked to stay in my office so that worried co-workers will not be exposed to any germs I may have brought from home. ;)

By the way, if you are a worried co-worker... I washed my hands after saying goodbye to the children this morning and have a good supply of hand sanitizer at my desk!

I'm sorry to hear that Preston has gotten sick too. But I am relieved to hear that the rest of you are feeling fine...especially mommy and Brekkan. I don't think mommies and babies should ever be allowed to get sick!
