H1N1 anyone?

This is my second post for the day to say that apparently K- did most likely cash in on the H1N1 and as a result, has clinical pneumonia. She is at school. She is functioning fine, but it is just the beginnings. I have antibiotics to give to her. Since she seemed to be getting better, then a low grade fever kicked back in and her cough started sounding gunky, I took her in. The doctor said that Friday they were triaging, but that I did the right thing to bring her in after she was seemingly getting well.

So there you have it. Dr. P- said that the likelihood that she had H1N1 is pretty high, as she had it, too. The cough lasts for three weeks. They are treating the kids in K-'s case as having clinical pneumonia. It sounds big and scary, but it is not.

Onward to work. Have a good oink-free day.

Oh, wow! We've had kids missing more than a week of school with it, and others, two days. That's it. It seems to affect everyone on a different level.

Here's hoping K's okay.

HUGS!

Oh boy! I hope she is feeling much better and continues on getting better. And I hope both you and Hubs stay healthy. Scary stuff!!

Aw! I hope she feels better! Poor thing! Glad you got a doctor/receptionist/nurse that listened to you.
