Swine (?) Flu

Aidan probably has swine flu. He was fine Sunday, woke up with a cough on Monday morning and by 4 pm he had a temp of 102, could barely talk, and was laying on the floor. I called the UK Swine Flu line (because you can't go to a doctor's office if you even suspect swine flu) and they did a survey over the phone and prescribed Tamiflu - which I picked up this morning. It is supposed to reduce the symptoms, shorten the course by 1 day and lessen the chance for severe complications - like pneumonia. Let's hope he is better soon! We are in a quarantine of sorts here - no school for either of them until next week at least.
