Cooper was still 100.5 at the Dr's office and was braking out in a rash literally in front of my eyes. He was so sleepy and I felt so bad for him. They did a rapid flu test and he tested positive for the type A which included H1n1.
When Dr. Kramer walked trough the door and told me it was positive I couldn't help myself, "Shit" was my reaction. Nice. "Yes, I was really hoping I wouldn't see a positive" She said. I am sure I am not the only new mom that has had a (few) choice word(s) with such news. She went on to explain to me that 90% of type A positives are H1N1 so that is what they diagnosed him with.
She sent me home with a prescription for Tamiflu and told me he could have Tylenol if needed for his fever.
Cooper got up to 101.4 and we had a rough first night as I had to learn how to give a two month old medicine, he had to learn how to take it, he obviously did not feel good, I didn't have Jason to lean on and we ended the evening with Cooper throwing up all over his glider and the floor in is bedroom. Thank God for my mom and thank God she was on fall break. She showed up everyday - with mask in hand - and helped Cooper and I SO much.
By Sunday I was sick and taking Tamiflu and we have just tried to get through each day waiting for Jason to get home (he comes home Tuesday) and thinking about what we would be doing if we were back in Ohio.
Not too sure about the Tamiflu!
