    Oldest daughter just diagnosed with H1N1. Swine flu. Wonder how long before the rest of us get it.

    Oh, no. How is she feeling? Stock up on chicken noddle soup and tissues.

    :D the title of your thread is quite clever.
    Not sure about the incubation period, but my friend's son was also diagnosed with it yesterday and he'll have to stay home for a week.
    At least you got it diagnosed right away! :thumb: Hope she feels better quickly. :love:

    I also hope she feels better soon and that it doesn't spread to y'all.

    Your thread title reminded me of the fact that I had a student last year refer to it as "the piggy flu" :lol: Doesn't sound as scary that way does it?

    It doesn't! I think I might refer to it that way. As long as we nip it in the bud, and take care of ourselves, it'll be ok. Panic sets off panic and commotion and ....
    If you or your loved ones are experiencing a fever, please go get checked out.

    We have fever, headaches, and coughs this AM and urgent care told me not to bring them in to get tested. Just watch them and not to send them back to school unitl 24 hours after the fever is completing gone.

    We were told that the incubation period can be up to two weeks--explains why we were on our second round last week. But by us they're not testing between h1n1 and regular flu, so we really don't know how many kids have had it. I did have one kid whose sister was out with it, and he never got sick. So, you never know...

    I'm amazed they are still testing for it. They've stopped doing so in Canada (or at least, done revealing the results) everyone with flu like symptoms is getting tamiflu. A few nearby schools have already had 30% absenteeism due to the flu.

    I have the "piggy flu". And it does sound a lot nicer without the swine attached to it! But it doesn't feel any nicer, that is for sure :) Hope your daughter is feeling better soon!

    They've stopped testing in our neck of the woods, too.

    I have it also, just diagnosed today. Because of my lung disease I got loaded up with major antibiotics and steroids. They told me if I am not any better by Thursday it is off to the hospital I go. The doctor seems to think that I have had it for awhile and the worst is over with so I am hoping.

    But I gotta say, it is horrible. I honestly am gasping for breath sometimes.

    I hope your daughter gets better soon!

    My sympathies, I hope everyone feels better soon.

    They're telling us to also use mouthwash when we get home from school in addition to all the other Lysoling and Germ Xing.

    No meds unless miserable or fever above 103.
    I was told to let the fever do it's job.
    If needed...alternate motrin and tylenol.

    Really?
    We're told to bring them in if child has a fever...ok; that can be a number of things...but because of the swine flu, they're are taking big-time precuations. :blush:
