Good afternoon to all. Tis Monday....
Big thanks to Kelli who came and watched the girls (She is a mother of one of the girls who took the day off to be with her daughter) while I took Noah to the doctor.
Confirmed: He has the flu.
Problem: Tamiflu. $40 copay for each bottle and he needs 2 bottles. Doc not sure when Flu actually started probably Sunday. May work. Might not. Is it worth the $80? I have used it once with him when he was 4 and I didn't see much of a difference. He has had the flu shot and is eating, drinking, resting, and seems fine except the fever and sore throat (which is fine when I keep him pumped with motrin/Tylenol). Frankly, we have gotten over the flu in November with no TamiFlu and a handful of times before.
What do you guys do?? What is your experience?? Should I pick it up and use it or say forget it and keep him home for a few days??
Sidenote: Weight still the same and I haven't been watching or exercising. What is wrong with me?? I guess this is the ADD kicking in. Cuz right now, my focus is on everything but me once again. Maybe I will jump back on the bandwagon but not till I see a rise...Okay where I am for now.
Off to clean the house, fold laundry, and watch Y &R.
