My daughter came home from school & work yesterday late afternoon and went straight to bed, feeling crap. Today I got a call at work from Larry, to tell me he had to go through the NHS procedures and that she has every symptom on their list. No doctor calls, no visit allowed to the surgery. Larry was given a ref # and was sent to a designated chemist as her flu buddy. He came home with swabs, literature and Tamiflu for our tall girl. She is still in bed as I type, with clean sheets, some soup inside her and drugged up for the night ahead. A temp of 102, aches, pains, sore throat, tiredness, sore throat, runny nose, cough and upset tummy....so far!
240 pupils at her school of 1200 were sent home yesterday and over 100 had swabs taken. She thinks the sharing of their water bottles may not have helped! Kids eh?
