Molly came home from school yesterday with a fever of 102, body aches, and a sore throat. Today she has been up to 103.5, coughing and too sick to do anything but lie around. Chloe was fine this morning, but this afternoon she got lethargic and when I took her temperature, it was 102.
They obviously have flu symptoms, as this is much more severe than a cold and came on very fast. It's too early for seasonal flu, but H1N* has just started hitting our area.
As soon as our doctor's office opens on Monday, I will be calling to see if I can get some Tam*flu for all of us--especially Kate and SaraGrace. I am trying not to get panicked, but obviously this is not good. Kate is more at risk than SaraGrace because Kate has compromised lung function as well as her heart condition. From what I have read, H1N* has been associated with a strain of viral pneumonia that penetrates deeply into the lungs.
We would so appreciate your prayers.
