We are still here at Primary's. Mason still is having fevers. He seems to be having chills and body aches as well (that is my own guess from the way he is acting). He is not happy at all! Poor little guy is miserable with some yucky sickness. The good news is.....it is not the swine flu or RSV! Thank goodness!! I was worried it was possibly the swine flu, because it's been going around our neighborhood.
Okay, so never mind. The doctor just came in. He's not out of the woods on the swine flu. Just the rapid test showed negative. And 40 % of the time that test doesn't catch it. We will know more after it's been cultured for 24 hours. He did start taking tamiflu as a precaution last night.
At least he doesn't seem bothered by his G-tube or sore from the surgery. And also with this fever he has had no appetite (well except to nurse of course....I think he's quite attached to his Ma Ma) we've been able to give him some pediasure through his new tube. So it's already coming in handy.
As of now we don't know what he has. We are going to do a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia and just sent a strep test to the lab. I will update when I know more.
Thanks for your love and concern!
