Default Son has flu. Again.

He had something last year that pretty much made him semi-comatose for a week. It was a BAD TYPE A.

Whatever he has now isn't as bad. Started out with a sore throat, now he has a so-so cough, a headache that he can feel in his temples and at the top of his neck, hot and cold chills and sweats, vomiting maybe 2x/day. Tired. I'm just giving him fluids and Tylenol.

Hope my flu shot covered it, because I just carried his bedding and jammies downstairs to wash and I bet I'm crawling with flu viruses.

I can definitely relate. Hope it doesn't get too bad for him or for you. I'm sure you'll take good care of him but take care of yourself too!
