We are about 36 hours out, out of Tamiflu and still have a fever, hacking cough, and now no energy.
She has at least been getting up after 3-4 hour naps and logging a couple hours on the wii,watching a cartoon or two, and then heading back to bed.
This evening, she was able to jump on Bogey for a couple minutes.
(she looks soo skinny to me after a week of not eating)
We then put Jake to bed, and attempted to play the Wii. She lasted , maybe 10 minutes, 5 of which, she played bowling while sitting in my lap.
The fever has gone down and is not quite as high, but now her energy level is shot. I would chalk it all up to being sick so long. However, I know, or have heard, at least 4 stories of kids in this area who are in th I CU from "
flu gone bad."
I hope this isn't "flu gone bad," and I hope I can be my own child's advocate and do what is best for her.
Please pray for Addison to kick this illness. She misses school dearly and has already missed her first soccer game, practice and it looks like she will miss her second practice and game as well.
She is one tough cookie, but it looks like "the flu," after a week, is finally getting to her.
ON the bright side, I can't tell you how good it feels to have our sweet boy, at least mostly, back again. His sweetness, his critical thinking, his compassion...I am seeing, again what I saw 6 months ago. The seizures are not totally gone and we still have 4 weeks to go, but right now is good.
I guess we learn to take the good with the bad? Why can't it all just happen, preferably good, at the same time?
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.(Psalm 37:39,40)
