Well, I thought we were recovering and getting back to life, but sadly I was mistaken. On the way to take Keeghan to school this morning, he fell asleep. He never does that. I thought maybe he just didn't sleep well last night, though usually he comes in to my room if that's the case. He seemed fine at breakfast. I woke him up when it was time to go into school and put my hand on his forehead... he was cool. He wasn't his usual perky self, but I thought maybe he was just waking up. Still, I told his teacher to call me if he didn't come around.
I headed home to get ready for Kassidy's dentist appointment later this morning. Sure enough, about an hour later, I got a call from Keeghan's teacher. She told me that he laid his head down during play time and now he was saying he couldn't get back up. He wasn't feverish, but he definitely wasn't feeling well. No rush, but I might want to come get him. I grabbed Kass and headed to Keeghan's school. By the time I got there he was sound asleep in his classroom and a little warm.
After a quick x-ray at Kass' dentist office, we headed off to urgent care since there were no openings at the pediatrician's office, and by that time he was pretty miserable and he had a 102 temp. They swabbed Keeghan's nose for Influenza and they told me it would take 10 minutes to come back. Two minutes later, they came back in and told me that it already popped up positive. Awesome.
So, I headed out to take my sick little guy home and then to Target to fill his prescription for Tamiflu. When I got to the parking lot, the doctor from the urgent care called me and asked if I would like to treat everyone else in the house with Tamiflu as well as a preventative. Absolutely! She got everyone's names and birth dates and weights (I didn't know Kameron's weight so I called his school and they weighed him for me... that had to be their strangest request of the week!) and then asked me to call the kids' ped and be sure it was ok to treat Kellsey with her medical history. He said, "Yes, PLEASE!" and she called all the prescriptions into Target for me. I am so, so, so thankful! The people at Target were very nice and got our meds ready quickly... a huge bag of meds... with like 20 droppers. It made me laugh. Almost.
And tonight I decided I need to get organized.
Yep. We're ready to fight the flu. I think I'll start my own pharmacy.
