  • My 13 year old had it in May.

    She came home from school on a Wednesday, kind of congested. The next morning she was very congested and had a fever of around 102.5. She had a really gross bloody nose that evening. When she woke up Saturday morning her fever was gone. The cough and congestion lasted a few more days.

    It was the flu.....

  • Sorry, rkoloms, that is not the flu. The flu, especially the fever, comes on super fast and not over night like you described.

    Also, I think this mom was looking for a confirmed case of "swine" flu and not a guess.
