A couple of weeks ago Anna Kate came down with a cold. Just your run of the mill cold, little bit of a runny nose and a bothersome cough from drainage. No fever, so I was not overly concerned. On Wednesday of that week, she started throwing up. We had been around some friends right before they came down with a stomach virus, so I thought she was having really bad luck. A cold and a stomach virus. Poor baby, but still NO fever. The next day she was puny, but not anything more than what would be expected from a stomach virus. By Friday, I thought she had an ear infection. After blowing her little nose, she grabbed he ear and stated crying. So I took her to the doctor, and the nurse out of the blue does a flu test. The doctor (not our regular doc) comes in, says she has a sinus infection, writes a prescription, and is ready to send us home. I mentioned to him that I presumed the flu test was negative since he did not say anything about it. Turns out he had no clue a flu test was done but lets me know that he highly doubts that is what it is. He goes to check the results and comes back in shaking his head. To all of our surprise, little AK tested positive for h1n1. We started Tamiflu that day and in 24 hours she was acting like herself again. I am assuming she had a very mild case, but nonetheless I am glad it is over.
