Maybe I'm overreacting I don't know. My six year old son was running a fever of 101 tonight so I call and cancel all my appointments for tomorrow and emailed his teacher to let her know he wouldn't be at school and am taking him to the doc. in the morning. I am concerned that maybe its swine flu. I am also concerned because I have not had a vaccine for it yet. So how at risk am I being type 1 diabetic? How at risk is he being a child and how at risk is my husband who works in health care and hasn't received his vaccine yet. I gave my son Tylenol and his fever has broke. He has been playing and laughing. So now I'm thinking I completely overreacted. And I am also worried that I have put myself behind at work and him behind at school because we are taking off tomorrow. Maybe I shouldn't take him to the doc. and risk us both getting H1N1 (swine flu) if that isn't what he has by sitting in the docs office. I don't know this is just stuff I have sat here and mulled over in my mind. Sorry for all the rambling. I just needed to get some of these thoughts out of my head and somewhere else. I have worried about swine flu all weekend. It is driving me crazy. We had a young man in our community to die from it this weekend and he had no underlying health problems. It has been a shock to all who knew him. I didn't know him. But feel so sorry for his family. Thanks everyone for listening.
