Looks Like We Didn't Escape It

I posted about my brother finding out he had the flu on Tuesday after he had been at my house the day before. You can read about that here.

I was worried because my doctor freaked me out that if I got the flu something would happen to my baby(I opted not to get the flu shot). Thanks to all of you, I'm thinking he was just being a jerk!

BUT Evan seems to have the flu!

My aunt even came in from out of town last night and stayed with us instead of my mom since my brother has had the flu. Later today Evan's eyes looked heavy and we decided he felt warm. We took his temperature and it was over 101(he made me take it away before it went off).

I called his doctor and they said right now there isn't anything they would do except give him Tylenol for the fever.

He seems OK right now, just not quite his usual self. My brother didn't get sick to his stomach so I hope Evan won't either!

I think I'm OK so far. I had a headache earlier...but nothing more than that. I took some Tylenol and am about to go to bed. I've been getting lots of Vitamin C and washing my hands like you all said. If there was anything else, I would be doing that too!

Hopefully I'll be able to keep it away. A friend of ours has kids who all had the flu and she ended up with pneumonia...HOPEFULLY that won't happen here! Pin It!

Oh yuck! I hope you don't get sick and Evan is better soon. G has had strep and pink eye over the past few weeks. Not fun. This week 5 kids in his class had Hand Foot and Mouth. He didn't get it, or hasn't yet, but I'm worried since 5 out of 12 had it. Not good! I hope Evan doesn't get pukey. That is the worst!

Keep an eye on that fever. My daughter had a seizure with the flu when she was a baby, due to a high fever. She's fine now, but it sure was scary.

Praying Evan (and you) gets better soon!

I hope Evan feels better soon. It is so rough on us Moms when our little ones are sick.

Lisa said...

Oh poor thing. I hope it is not the flu. Hopefully he will get back to normal soon and you do not catch anything. Good luck.

Hope your little guy feels better soon and it bypasses you. Hugs.

Poor Evan....I hope he is feeling better soon. My hubby always tells his patients to alternate between Tylenol and Ibuprofen every three hours to keep the fever down. Sending prayers!

Chris said...

Yuck that flu is terrible. We have had it at our house too. I hope you get rid of it soon.

Hil said...

I am so sorry! My little guy is very sick as well. I wish there was more we could do for him other than just Tylenol! He hasn't been able to sleep at all because he has a horrible cough. I hope you both get feeling better soon!! I can't wait for summer...

Get better to the little one and stay well. I hope you will dodge the bullet!

Ashley said...

I am in healthcare, there are so many people getting the flu that had the flu shot!
Of course the flu shot doesn't protect against every strain.
It's that time! There are a lot right now getting admitted with the flu!
I hope you don't have it. I will think positive thoughts!!!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh no! I'm sorry girlie, hopefully the neighbors have stopped being loud so when Evan can sleep it's quiet and of course for you too mommy ;)

Yuck...not good!

I hope you don't get sick...it's just so hard to kick it while pregnant. Course Nyquil is about the only thing that works for me.

Hope Evan is feeling better.
