3 Year Old Has Flu! Losing My Mind
« on: December 12, 2013, 10:22:56 AM »
Hello,

My 3 year old has the flu. He tested positive using the rapid test yesterday. Came down with about a 101 degree fever on Tuesday afternoon. Still running a fever now Thursday morning. Ibuprofen brings it down for a few hours. I'm absolutely losing my mind with worry that he will get pneumonia or something and die! I also have a two year old daughter who is the sweetest thing ever. She has not shown any symptoms so far, but I worry for her as well because she is so young still and feel like she will definitely die.

Is it common for 2-3 year olds to get the flu? Do most kids recover just fine? I'm seriously about to go totally insane I think. I keep thinking about them in the hospital dying of pnemonia and looking at me wondering why I can't do anything to help them. Please someone help me.

Last year out entire family got the flu. Three kids, me being pregnant, and the husband. Our youngest was 2 and it was rough for all of us. We made it. We didn't have to be hospitalized. Praying you guys get passed this quickly. Hand in there!!

Flu is common, in all ages.   My daughter got the SWINE flu when it was going around.  She was 4 years old at the time.  Lots of fluids, rest, TLC.  She will be okay :)

I don't know. I just read all about how healthy kids can die of the flu on Google. Around 100 per year!!!!

I literally think this is the darkest spot I've ever been. I can't lose my kids!
