The test was negative for swine flu for Brinley. We were all surprised with that because we were all pretty sure it was. Docs and nurses too.


They want to keep her on the tamiflu, and they decided instead of making me go back up to the hospital, they would just send out our home health nurse to draw another culture, check counts, and administer a dose of antibiotic. Brinley is pretty miserable, the minute the tylenol wears off, she starts burning up again and just cries.

So we don't know anything, really. I worry if it's swine flu, I worry if it's not. This can be one big fat worryfest sometimes. We are just trying to keep everything sanitized and hands washed. Seems impossible sometimes, but we do our best. Jade seems a bit better today.

Well that's good - but still those viruses are nasty. Good luck with everything. It is so hard to keep germs from spreading!

I'm so happy to hear it's not the swine flu. I hope the poor girl starts feeling better soon. It's good to hear that Jade is feeling better. I hope you and David or the other girls don't get it!
