We actually got in really fast. I tried my hardest to be strong and help the kids and Dustin but I was so weak that they put me on IV for dehydration and then gave us all tamiflu and sent us home. So they never confirmed it was H1N1 because they have to do a swab and then they have to send it to Edmonton and it can take up to a week since they are so busy there. You have to be on tamiflu for 5 days anyways so they gave it to us anyways. So now we are all on it, except Dustin since he has been feeling fine and I swear it helped instantly. Today we are a thousand times better. The girls are even up and playing which they haven't done all week. They have just been laying on the couch or cuddling with me. I'm still weak and we all still sound gross and coughing lots but at least we can walk and move and no more fevers. They were constant and it was really hard to keep them down.
I never realized how much work it was to take care of these girls until I had no choice to sit here and watch Dustin do everything. Of course they aren't sick when I have to do it so he had twice as much work as I usually do. He is truly amazing and I never have been so grateful for him. He never complained once, and tried to keep up with the housework and meds and everything. I love him.
This was on Sunday, we weren't sick but it's a cute cuddling picture so it kinda goes...
This is Jayci and Kyla on the first day, they were so sick. They would just sit and cuddle with each other. So sad.
We did a lot of this
Jayci out cold, they would fall asleep anywhere. They were so tired but couldn't sleep in their beds because they would twitch out from their fevers and scare themselves and wake up crying. So they slept on the couch a lot.
And Presley, they seriously would lay like this forever. This is when you know they are sick.
So that's about our week, longer post than I thought but oh well. I'm just glad we are getting better and I never realized how brutal this flu can be. Oh and question, do you still have to get the immunization if you have had H1N1?
