H1N1 Virus

It's been a long day so I'm hoping to turn in soon and get a bit more sleep tonight. Callum had a rough morning but had some energy mid-day to work on a little art before feeling crummy again. He took a nice nap in the afternoon and finally seemed to be looking better. Tired, but so much better.

His nasal swab tested positive for the H1N1 virus - which isn't a huge surprise since I was pretty certain Jon and I came down with the flu - but still a bummer to hear. The good news is that there's an antiviral med for this one, which can help lessen the severity and length of illness, so we've started him on that (Tamiflu) today. Hopefully between that, the barrage of fluids and around the clock Tylenol he's been getting, he'll feel much better very soon. Since I just took care of Jon and then was out of commission with it myself, I know this flu is no joke. Poor guy. :(
