So the doctor we went to on Wednesday said Jake had Strep. Thursday morning we wake up to a VERY high temp and him complaining of his tummy hurting and vomiting. So with his dad just going through that I was concerned that he might have appendicitis too. So I rush him to his real Pedi and his temp is now 105. something. They tell me that he has the FLU!!!! He is still sick today. I hate idiot doctors who act like they know what the heck they are doing! I'm sure if it had been his child he would have run all sorts of tests to rule out stuff. I am just glad that we have a PEDI that cares! He is a great doctor and very thorough. I just wish now that I could get him better. OH! and let me complain about something else! IT COST US $85.00 to get a little bottle of Tamiflu. $85.00!!!!!! Drug companies should be ashamed!

Omg, I am so sorry that the little one is sooo sick!  That is nutty how much the stupid meds were.  That's highway robbery!!  But you know what?  Tamiflu is AWSOME!!  I had the flu really bad once and took the stuff and it did wonders.  Hope he feels better soon.

fasa dr.s ....i swear....not only do you have to wait hours upon hours upon hours upon hours, while being sick or sitting there with a sick child and sick ppl all around you all to see a dr. for a whoping 5 minutes....whooooooooooooopie.....

fortuntely my kids are rarely sick and I can't remember the last time they saw a dr. advil, allergies pills, sudafed, etc. over the counter knocks out whatever they have. 

and the cost of prescriptions....that's outrageous, really makes you wonder how ppl with no insurance, the indigent pay for their meds. 

Crazy....just out right crazy...I hope he feels better soon.....have a great weekend!!
