She is still SO sick. She seems worse today than yesterday. The second her Motrin wears off she shoots up to 103. She hasn't eaten much since Saturday. Her pants are just falling off of her. She's breathing rapidly (twice as fast as normal). I can't STAND this. I am trying to hold it together, but it is getting harder with each passing day of round-the-clock medicines and temperature taking and the relentless worry.
I talked to the nurse about the breathing yesterday and she said is likely just in response to the fever. She didn't seem worried.
But, how long can someone have a fever? This is ridiculous! I guess it really is a virus, because I don't think the antibiotics are doing shit. Asshole virus.
Okay. Let's talk about something FUN. Like flu vaccines. Do you get them? Why or why not? I gladly get them. GIVE IT TO ME. John gets forced into getting one at the Guard base. He wouldn't get one otherwise. I was torn about getting one for Becca until the doctor told me last year that she would be much less likely to be hospitalized. So, now she gets one because you KNOW I can't stand my kid in the hospital.
But, I really do think she has the flu right now. And they don't seem to ever pick the right strains to vaccinate us with. And it is kind of freaky.....
On the other hand, I am very pro-protect-the-herd mentality with vaccines. I believe in vaccines.
However, is the flu going to become resistant to the vaccines and become super-scary?
What do you think?
