Hugs, crewsk. I know what you are going through. Daughter and HH were simultaneously down with strep (thank God, not the flu) for a week before Thanksgiving. Neither one of them wanted to eat or drink a thing, and daughter probably went through about 10 boxes of kleenex.

Hope TC starts feeling better soon.

Crewsk, I hope TC gets well soon and no one else gets it. TC is lucky to have you - take care of yourself during this time, too. We don't want you down.

So sorry TC is feeling so badly. His temperature is a bit high, but not unusual for the flu. Have you tried tylenol for kids? Also, pedialyte is great since you said he is drinking fluids, and you can get the popsicle version as well, keeps those electrolytes at a good level. Other than that, just luke warm baths. Mom's never get any sleep with their kids are sick (worrying about them), so try to get rest when you can. I hope your all feeling good for the christmas.

I was suffering the second influenza of the season last week too, looks like it is bad everywhere.
For those who are still safe, keep warm, eat well and take plenty of vitaminC, and cross your fingers!
Once again best wishes and hugs to TC, get well soon!!
Also, there really is something to the Chicken Soup remedy. When you make a proper chicken soup, you break the ckicken bones before cooking, and add incgredients like celery and onion, which are mildly acidic. These leach the ntrients from the bone marrow, and help disolve the collagen. In short, the soup broth is full of nutrients that help the body fight off infections. The warm broth also helps clear brochial passages and sinuses. He needs nutrition, and brothy soups that are made with bones and meat are a good way to get them. They are also fairly esy on the tummy.

Hahahaha... I saw that on a commercial.

There's a flu going around at my school too. People are coughing and sneezing all over the place.

I hope he gets better soon.
Not to get off topic from Crewsk's thread, but I know the commercial too (Knorr's). Here's a tip for school, bring a small bottle of hand sanitizer, it really helps kill germs and might keep you from getting sick too! We actually have wipes in our grocery store whereby you grab a wipe before putting your hands on the grocery cart.

Thank you all so much!!

He ate 5 mini cheese muffins with blackberry jam last night at my parents house (he stayed with them while Savannah was at a Christmas party & I finished up some shopping, I felt guilty for leaving him)!!! After eating he was able to take his Tamiflu without getting sick. This morning he ate 6 of the muffins with jam.

Goodweed, I started chicken soup this morning for his lunch today.

Amber, I keep a bottle of hand sanitizer with me at all times, plus a travel package of anti-bacterial wipes so I can wipe off the cart handle at the grocery store. I've seen kids pick their noses & wipe it on those things!!

That's a great news Crewsk!! I know, I lose all my usual appetite when I am suffering from influenza, too (influenza is just about the only thing that manages to make me lose it!!), and when I start feeling like eating again that is a definite sign of recovery!!

I hope and believe you guys will be all healthy to enjoy the Christmas!!

Take care!!

Thanks urmaniac! He has lost 10 pounds in the last week & a half. He was skinny to begin with, but now he's skin & bones.
