Oldest Son Running a Fever

Oldest Son has a fever. I looked up Swine Flu symptoms. He gets fevers often so probably nothing to worry about but he is sleeping with me tonight so I can keep him close.

Sunday Update:
Still running fever. We are watching for congestion as trigger to head to the doctor.

Do keep an eye on that little guy - quite the scare going on at the moment.

You all seem to have good diets and strong immune systems - so not to worry.

Snuggle close. Hope all turns out well.

Keep an eye on him and if you're still worried, take him to a doctor, if for anything...to rule out swine flu!!! Hoping for the best.

You are both in my prayers. It breaks my heart when my kids are sick. And they are 23 and 26 now. When they were little it was so hard. Fortunatly, they rarely got sick.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts. Oldest Son is pretty wiped out with the fever but no other symptoms yet.

Just thought Id mention that the CDC has some good info on their web site about this flu. It deff helped to take care of some of my worries. Heres the link. http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/

A-
Thanks for suggestion. Husband is using that site to help us too. CDC is monitoring very closely (of coarse!)

I hope that he is feeling better soon. If he has fever all the time since moving here, he might have something chronic that is more common in Mexico than NOB. I still get anxious when my kids get sick, and they are (supposed to be) adults.
regards,
Theresa

TM - Oldest Son has been susceptible for most of his life NOB and SOB. He handles it well but I feel so bad for him. Hoping he will outgrow it. We have been on the verge of visiting Infectious Disease Doc a few times.

Aww, poor baby (and parents!). Hope the visit to the doctor eased your mind and that you were able to get some medicine. Wishing you the best, keep us posted.

CC - We have NOT gone to doctor yet but with fever continuing it looks like we may be there tomorrow.
