Well this last week and a half are finally over, my son had h1n1 and he had fever after fever, sore throat, headaches, runny nose and ear aches! He was so sick, but he is finally better and will be able to go to school monday. I gave him tylenol for fevers and keep moist wash clothes on his head and back, lots of water and juice. I mixed orange juice with cran-raspberry and put sipper lids on juice and put a bowl with ice next to his bed to keep water and juice in to keep it cold. He has only ate a little soup and soft bread, near the end he had pbj's and bean and cheese burritos. He had a few baked potatoes with sour cream and butter. A strawberry shake or two and the last few days he sucked on a lot of hall's citrus cough drops. The fevers were everyday for about 6 days but each day they were a little farther apart. He was a little dizzy at times, but drank a lot and he is so much better! Good luck to all of you who get this its harsh but you can do it and survive!
