I just got a call from my son's daycare saying that one of the teacher's has a confirmed case of swine flu and another has been sent home with the same symptoms. Needless to say...I AM FREAKING OUT!!! I have already called the doc (waiting to hear back) to see what I should look for but I am seriously coming apart right now. Just need some support please :/

I woudln't worry too much.  I know several adults and kids that have had it.  One of the kids is 6 and it was milder than the regular flu.  Unless you have underlying medical issues, it's not that bad.

Thanks! I have been doing some research ever since the call but it is still a little scary. I am calmer now than I was when I first got off the phone...lol!

No problem :) I know the media is scaring everyones pants off making you think that if you get it you'll die lol But no, generally that's not the case.  The average person that gets it gets the flu.. just like normal.  I mean I know some people get it real bad and yes it has killed people, but so does the normal flu every year and no one panics then.  It's just cause its new that its 'scary.'  Just make sure you're washing hands really really good!!

Both my kids have had it.  It wasn't that bad.  Call your doctor and ask for Tamiflu.
