  • not much going around here flu wise but my sisters family as had it and said takes about two weeks to run its course. But moms know best and if think he needs to go back then do it.

  • The only symptom you said that made me concerned was the blue face and legs.....I would take my child in just for that!!

    Is that normal for flu? My kids have never done that and I thought they had done about everything!

  • I always take my children in, just to be sure. The blue extremities would be my main concern. At the very least, make the phone call and see if they want to see him. Good luck and I hope he gets well soon
