N & L have the flu, as confirmed by the pediatrician's office this morning. N had a horrible night of coughing and aching and puking, while L has just been very feverish and congested for a couple days. I didn't really think it was the flu, since they had the vaccine earlier this season -- but the vaccine doesn't have all the possible strains in it, and apparently they picked up a different strain.
My poor boy is rarely sick, but when he does fall ill, he is horribly sick.
My baby is pretty pathetic as well.
I guess we're waiting for C to succumb, but I'm hoping somehow he escapes. As well as me and DH . . . the last thing DH needs is the flu as we can't possibly give up any potential sales right now. And, I need to be able to care for the children.
The pediatrician told me to expect him to feel poorly for 7-10 days, and not fully recovered for 14-21 days.
He will have to miss his Valentine party at his enrichment program tomorrow, which is a shame.
I need to go soothe my babies.
