Okay I am really very over all of this swine flu business. My oldest has had the swine flu for 2 weeks now. What I find strange and a little "chicken little" about this situation are these items; a) any flu is called the swine flu right now because we are not in the regular flu season b) the flu test is coming back with a 50 -60 % false-negative c) the actual "treatment window is a 24 window at the first sign of symptoms and the studies only show the symptoms lasting 4.5 - 6 days vs. the standard 6 -7 days - what's a half day? or a day? This information was all given to me from the doctor at the emergency room. AM had a temperature all weekend and had passed out. I knew the passing out had to do with dehydration but went to the hospital any how for a number of reasons. The two top reasons being passing out and the 5 month old. All of this information just seems so ambiguous to me. I do not plan on getting my kids the swine flu vaccine because I do not feel like it has had enough time to be tested properly. **The list is what I heard from the doctor and the vaccine is my own opinion - you should make your own!** AM is still sick as I said but last year she got sick and was sick for about the same time. So I am unconvinced about all of the craziness over this swine flu stuff.
As you may have noticed I have not posted in a while. Sorry! As I mentioned I am in a bit of a slump but we also have a lot of change going on in our house. I will post more when everything has been finalized. I mean this in a working sense - nothing too serious!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Sorry again for being so neglectful!
