1 What is Swine Flu ? on Tue Aug 25, 2009 7:33 pm


What the hell is really swine flu ? I spent 3 hrs today in the ER with my granddaughter, fever, sore throat, ears inflamed, nausea and of course quick steps.
I was told it might be swine flu and it might not be??? She was exposed at school to documented swine flu last week.
Incubation is 2-7 days..
The brilliant ER Dr. said regardless it is treated the same way and all the hype is media ...
It is a virus, no antibiotic for a virus.
Alternate Motrin and Tylenol every 4 hrs.
Her pediatrician who was double booked today says it can be very serious in children, and elderly with compromised health. So what is someone to believe ? The Dept . of Infectious and Contagious Disease or an over worked ER Dr.
