Sunday my daughter went next door to play with her friend. No biggie. She does this all the time. She came back and said it was REALLY cold in their house and she had the slight sniffles. Later that night she developed a fever. I gave her some meds, and tucked her in bed.
She woke up Monday morning with a fever of 102 still. I kept her home from school. A few hours later she spiked at 103.5! I kinda paniced as that is NO good.
Her doctor was talking to me and insisted I go get her some tylenol and call her back in an hour. In that hour, her temp went down barely a degree. She wasnt eating, drinking, or urinating.
The doctor insisted I take her to Urgent Care. She had to wear a mask! Which she very much disliked.
They swabbed her for strep---negative
Then the doctor said she has all the symptoms of H1N1 and they swabbed her for that and said the would get the results the next day.
We went home with a perscription of Tamiflu and was told REGARDLESS of the results of the test, she is to take the full dosage of the Tamiflu!
This afternoon I called her doctor again because I still hadnt heard anything. And they looked it up in the computer and her test results where negative. But I have heard that sometimes those results can come back a false negative. Hence why we have to do the full dosage of Tamiflu!
Im glad it came back ok but Im still worried...what if her's is false negative....
She is ok now. No fever and acting normal!
Cross your fingers for me!
