Sicky boy

We took Mike to the doctor's today. The doctor didn't think he had the flu, but we told him to test for it anyway since Joshua's family has all had it this week. Sure enough, he has it. He also still has an ear infection in one ear. We got some more antibiotics (omnicef this time) for the ear infection, but unfortunately there's nothing we can do for the flu. He said it's only going to get worse, and all we can give him for it is Motrin. Poor kid.

He also gave me and Joshua prescriptions for Tamiflu so we can try and prevent catching the flu. The only problem was it's dang expensive since we don't have insurance for us. :S However, it's a lot better than missing lots of work AND being sick, so we paid for it and hope it works!

Poor Mikey!

Tamiflu is some pretty wicked cool stuff! You're lucky the doc prescribed it for you guys! It's very much a preventative medication and docs are very particular on who they prescribe it to. Good luck!
