Flu be gone

I was hoping we could avoid this flu bug, but since it is EVERYWHERE i guess that is hard to do. Avery got to feeling awful first....i took her into urgent care tonight and she is starting tamiflu in the morning...long story short- there is a city-wide shortage-insurance company was closed-it's a compound and needs insurance approval- i didn't want to pay $120 tonight! Hopefully she will get to feeling better quickly but in the meantime it is aggrivating her asthma but breathing treatments are helping! The only reason she was prescribed tamiflu was because of the asthma...

When i got home tonight i went to check on Trey and he was burning up so looks like i won't be taking any kids to school tomorrow. Trey was not prescribed the medicine because he has no underlying health condition.

I have tamiflu prescriptions for Ethan and Raegan because of their age so that we can start them on it if they start showing symptoms.

I am supposed to be running a half-marathon this Saturday so i am going to go overdose on Airborne!!

Oh no! I'm so sorry that Avery and Trey are feeling crummy. I hope it passes through quickly w/o getting to anyone else!

Hope they feel better soon. As Abigail would say "Go away flu!" ;)
