    Has anyone else been sick with this flu? My daughter has been sick since Sunday...fever of 103 and chills, then she's too hot for awhile. She will drink liquids fine but doesn't want food. She has a few hours when she's feeling much better so she might try some toast..then it all starts over again. This is day five and it's a doozy. I've never had one last this long before.

    Any flu strain can last 7-10 days, really. I never have one last more than 2 days. I think if she has had a fever for more than 48 hours I would take her to the doctor, the flu could have caused a residual infection somewhere.
