Update on the Flu in Our House - Buy a Thermometer

Each day I've been updating our life with the H1N1 Swine flu. For full story see this post.

Oct. 18 Day 6: I woke without fever. Have more energey, but still congested in my chest. Staying off the meds today. Our 4 year-old woke with a fever of 101.7. Day 2 for her. Put her on Tylenol. Her spirits are up. Kids are amazing. Asked the doctor last night about Tamiflu and she thought it would be difficult to get unless we were in the emergency room. So, we are watching our little one for any respiratory problems, and keeping her hydrated. Plenty of DVD's in this house to keep her happy. It's amazing how resourceful our digital thermometer has become. With three of us sick it is getting used a lot.
Tip - Always have a working thermometer in the house.


  1. This is so true. It is funny but just being sure you know what a child's temperature is, even if it is high, brings a little peace. I have blogged before about our beloved ear scan. Hope you family is feeling better soon!

  2. We are loving our new therma-scan thermometer. I was able to take my three-year old's temperature in about 10 seconds while he was still asleep. It was a little pricey at about $35, but I'm really liking it!
