It is rampant in my house right now. Started by 6yr old who gave it to 3yr old and then 11yr old got it. 15 month old and I got it at the same time. He seems to be much more recovered than I am. All the other kids are seemingly back to normal and back to school. 6yr old is at her soccer game today, which I couldn't go because I am still sick. I still have a low grade fever - 99.6 to 100.0, chills and then sweating, hacking cough that is killing me the leg pain is finally gone thankfully but I have NO energy what so ever. Dh was out of town for basically the last 2 weeks traveling, work related, so I had to take care of everyone and the animals. Didn't have a choice. Thankfully my inlaws took the 3 yr old for me the last couple of days so I could get some rest. The baby is easy and my 11 yr old help me with him. I also didn't want to expose me inlaws to an active flu virus. If this cough is not better by Monday I will definatly be going to the Dr. Dh tried to talk me into going on Friday but I didn't want to be one of those people that went in just because. I am really concerned now that this may be turning into pneumonia as I feel bubbles in my chest when I cough. I was just wondering what everyone elses recovery was like. I am not a smoker and have no other risk factors other than I was hosp. as a kid for viral pneumonia and I know my age kind of puts me at a slightly higher risk of complications. Hope everyone else is well UPDATE: Went to the Dr and while she couldn't confirm I had had the flu she was pretty sure by the symptoms I told her I had. What I have now is secondary infections. I have an upper resp. inf., a sinus inf. and a right ear inf. I am on Zpak and codiene cough syrup. Hopefully I will be feeling better this time tomorrow. I have noticed a difference in my cough since being on the codiene. It makes me tired but at least I am not coughing!!! Thanks to everyone for their replies. I really appreciate it!!
