For those of you that have been through this, what does the boy HAVE? It started with sore throat, two days later when the sinus nasal thing usually starts, he was fine. No nasal discharge or sinus pressure. But he looked ashen and a bit green around the gills. I stayed home another day with him...THEN the chest congestion started. I keep asking him if he has any body ache or pain and he says no. He sounds like a purring cat...a BIG cat. This would be day two of the purring, but day six of being sick...not much coughing. just purring. Feline flu? something new?Anyone have this? Had this? What is this? I think he has a fever..but the temp ear thing broke so I go with the inner arm to back of neck method. He's hot. Does it sound like a secondary infection or just more of the first? I wish I was a more confident mom. Where is the mom manual anyway? If he has the flu I need to keep his germs home. I'm feeling washed out, but no aches. Probably just worn out from washing my hands so much. I hope this was the proper forum, and thank you to anyone who can enlighten me.
