so, ive been sick for about a month now. diagnosed with URI and walking pnumonia. ive been on antibiotics for a week (i procrastinate when it comes to taking MYSELF to the doctor lol)

my daughter is 6, and she has been sick for 2 weeks now. fever always at least 100. has made it up to 104. we went to pediatric urgent care last night, they said it was  URI and strep.

HOWEVER, they did not know, because i didnt know untill this morning, that my aunt, who works in the ICU at the hospital as a nurse, has a patient with CONFIRMED swine flu. and my brother and his son, havent been tested for swine flu, but the doctors say more then likely because they ruled out all infections and such and they have been sick for about a month as well, and said that if it was regular flu, it MIGHT have run its course by now (not always of course, but they are playing it safe)
my brother and his son are on an antiviral. i guess the antiviral hasnt been widely released yet because of the cost, but there is this one urgent care giving it to sick patients who have been exposed to swine flu.

my question is, should i take her back to urgent care and give them the new info about us being exposed to swine flu?

 

(i am not overly concerned about the swine flu illness going around like some people are super worried, but i WOULD like the medicine if it will make my DD feel better you know?

If it would make you feel better then you should take her.

  It wouldn't hurt to take her back with the new info and would probably give you peace of mind.
