Tamiflu for All

December 9, 2012

This morning Becky woke up with aches in her joints.  By the time we made a grocery list, she had a fever.  I called the on-call nurse and asked if they would call her in a prescription for Tamiflu.  The doctor she consulted with agreed to do so based upon Julia’s confirmed test.  He also offered to call me in a prescription, since they both agreed I was doomed.

Becky was feeling really bad by late afternoon.  She was not complaining, but I could tell just by looking at her.  She took the medicine, and I hope that she is feeling better soon.  I cannot imagine having to teach a room full of high school kids feeling like crap.

One positive development today was that Miss Julia is feeling better.  She was wide open most of the day, and also got her appetite back.  She ate two bananas and three apples on top of a pile of bowtie noodles.  I am impressed with Tamiflu based upon how both kids have responded.

    Congrats. This convinced me to go get a flu shot today.

      The kids got the strain that wasn’t covered by the shot. Oh the joys of parenting!
