My daughter is eight and yes we gave her the flu vaccine. She now has a "mild" strain. It could be worse. She has a fever on and off again of about 102 and lower. Sometimes vomiting. Mostly she was dehydrated. She tested positive for the flu. About 12 other kids in her class have the same symptoms. If they tested positive I do not know. Some I know their parents decided to not take them to the doctor and ride this out.
I have cold cloths on her head. She is watching cartoons. Has a small baking sheet of Legos by her bed. She takes small sips of juice through the day with much encouragement, hates drinking right now. She does not want any type of food.
What things do you do for your child when sick? She is super lonely and a bit whiny. Wants me with her 24/7. I slept with her last night but sleeping in a twin bed is not all that comfortable with two people. I read my book in there while she watches t.v.
Any advice on how other mothers make it through these long sick days would be great.
