My oldest daughter, Miranda – I do talk about her a bit on here. she has ADHD/AUTISM and with this has a HIGH PAIN THRESHOLD. Anyways Tuesday she came out of school looking rather pale. no temp. She said she was tired and cold – SHE IS NEVER TIRED NOR COLD…. drive home from school takes 3 mins… she feel alseep. 3pm No temp all normal. 3:30 check temp and its 39.8 WHAT THE HECK!!??!! and she crashed and went down hill fast. thought it might be a 24 hr virus..come wednesday was just managing to keep temp at around 38. then lastnight she flatlined… temp spiked to 40… and we struggled to keep it low for long. Went to the doctors, and he believes its that horrible strain of flu thats going around…I have never seen my girl so sick.. she is so weak she cant walk…its heart breaking to see her this way…Just have to watch closely… no going out in public as we dont want to spread it. and have to watch as this virus can attack the lungs and cause so many complications. if no improvement by saturday we have to go back… hope she dont get worse or its hospital… what I wanted to share this for was… BE EXTRA VIGILANT PLEASE… there is so many cold, and kiddie flus and 24 hr bugs going around that its easy to be misjudged whats going on.. Hope noone else has to see their child go through this horrible strain of flu… its aweful. stay safe this flu season.
