Spencer and Robert almost earned another polar bear badge on their cub scout campout at Oak Mountain last weekend! It was cooooold but they made it!
Well, Spencer barely made it. He had started coughing pretty bad on Friday night and just didn’t seem like himself when they left Saturday. By the time they got back Sunday, he really wasn’t feeling himself. He spiked a fever of 103 and I was pretty sure he had the flu. I took him to urgent care because I wanted him to get Tamiflu within the first 48 hours of being sick. Well, urgent care did a flu test and it was negative! Even the doctor was shocked and said he looked “flu-y” but she wouldn’t give me Tamiflu. Boo.
I took him to the pediatrician first thing Monday and, yep! Positive flu test. Got Tamiflu a day later than I would have liked. He was pretty miserable Monday and Tuesday but really turned the corner on Wednesday and went back to school Thursday.
Fingers crossed no one else gets the flu! We have big Thanksgiving plans!
