The flu

My 11 year old son has been home all week with the Influenza virus. Symptoms started Sunday night including headache, sore throat, runny nose and a cough. Fever started Monday morning at 103.0 F and then went down to around 101.0 F. Its Thursday we took him to the doc this morning just to make sure if wasn't bacterial. Anyway still has low grade fever, nasty almost barky cough and runny/stuffy nose. I had no clue this virus could tear a kid up like that! I am grateful for a fantastic pediatrician. Has anyone else had a child who has been so sick from it?
