Re: Flu 2019

I'm sorry, snafu.

Theraflu or Tamiflu? I took Tamiflu last year and it was a miracle!

"They" say your symptoms should be more mild. I hope that's true.

Re: Flu 2019

Feel better snafu!

DH gets the flu shot every year (mandatory for work) and every year gets the flu. This year he had his physician write an "excuse" for him to skip it (there's some medical reason he had... I can't remember what it was) and so far (crosses fingers) he hasn't gotten it despite being surrounded with people who have it.

DD had to get a flu shot also, and came down with the stomach flu while she was home.

I hope no one else in your family gets it!

Tamiflu

I've been warned that, in some cases, the flu will rebound into bronchitis/ pneumonia.

I was also told that it would be in my mom's best interest to isolate myself in my bedroom. (The dr also gave me face masks for when I leave my room).

Re: Flu 2019

It might be worth getting your mom a prescription for Tamiflu too. Back when my kids were little, if one of them got something contagious (flu, strep) our doctor's office had another prescription ready to go for the other one so I could get it filled at the first sign of illness.

Does your mom have a local physician whose office she can call?

Re: Flu 2019

😑

Mom chose NOT to call her dr

I'm sleeping a lot, get tired easily, and my chest is starting to feel a bit tight today.

Re: Flu 2019

Take is slow. It takes a while to recover.
