After checking all of her vitals, the Dr. took a swab and proclaimed she had the flu ... as well as pneumonia ... and potentially a cracked rib from coughing. She prescribed tamiflu, antibiotic, inhaler, cough suppressant and ibuprofin for fever reducer.
Her blood pressure was dangerously LOW as she was not drinking enough. Just sleeping. Today we go to have an xray to see about her ribs although nothing much can be done about that. It will also provide a better look at her lungs for the pneumonia.
Unfortunately, I'm glad she was diagnosed with the flu ... it will be easier to get them all in for a flu shot next year. Now that she feels this bad, she is upset that her kids had to feel this way. She feels like she is going to die.
Many symptoms to the flu (and not everyone has every one!):
Fever above 100 F (38 C), though not everyone with the flu has a fever
A runny or stuffy nose
Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea (most common in children)
From what I've read, that's exactly what the flu feels like. Like you would rather die than feel like that.
