OK after spending a merry night down the pub, my missus now confronts me (Lads night out) with the news she suspects the eldest hs Swine Flu.



Now, I met the silly Northerner (Stoke fan( sneezing and shouting "Swine flu) in Alton Towers on Tuesday. I assumed that was a silly northern joke. But maybe it wasnt.

He went up to bed at 4pm - (like thats normal!) and has a real high fever.

What precautions should I be taking?

Get yourself up here and I'll keep you safe. No swine flu here hereabouts.
Mind you, I have to say that Mrs guv is pretty long suffering. :roll:

I could. But that advice is as lame is the 16 year old above. (No hate - accept where intended.)

Is it North of the Watford Gap? Yeeeeees. (Its we'll northern.)

Anyway - you're a southern bunny now. (Escape - don't show yourself up!) :w00t:

BJ - you're a mystery to the sistrerhood, I guess.

I know you southerners are insecure, but don't forget, guv, that I can sing 'Men of Harlech' in three languages (with a bit of prep) and I'm a lovely woMan.

Thanks for the well wishes guys.

Now I've sobbered up - I'm more worse for wear than the little'un I think!

He has managed to get out of bed and now downstairs watching TV. (not a good thing - but definately a good sign!) He's still complaining about feeling really weakand his face is bright red (with his temperate), but he's sitting with his cold head mask and seems content.

By the way Chesso "men of Harlech" isn't cool - but you cerrtainly are!:thumbsup:

I would give him something to bring his temp down, not sure how old he is? eqivlent to calpol if he is older, treat him with what you would if he had normal cold/flu & contact nhs about getting some tamiflu?
Hope he is better soon :)

If he has swine flu then the last thing he should do is take him to hospital. :thumbsup: If it's that serious then ring 999 and call a ambulance but don't turn up and spread infection. :)

However......Guv, there are lots of viruses doing the rounds at the mo. Forget the swine flu hotline as that's manned by normal bods.........ring your local walk in centre and get a call back from the Doc on duty. :)

Hi my 10 year old boy has exactly the same thing, I got home thursday night and he said he ached all over, had a sore throat and a temperature. He went to bed and was asleep before he even had his tea. He was rough yesterday but today the lure of Sky tv has cured him.
His temp is right down and he says he feels better but his throat still hurts.
Hope this helps:thumbsup:

agreed, this truely is the best idea, my girlfriend works in and around Lewisham Hospital although in Maternity, but they have had people saying theyre in the waiting room because they THINK theyve got The Swine and sent them all home and told them to ring NHS Direct and if more serious to get a doctor on call.

But as you said there is lots going around at the moment, and swine flu is like any other flu, for 99% of people it will seem like a normal flu, and is no more dangerous then a normal flu either.

Just get your eldest to keep his energy and blood sugar levels up, along with with medication of what you feel is correct with their age etc. :thumbsup:

Hope he gets better soon anyways!

yup

im sure everyone else in this thread has given good advice, but its best to ring the NHS or go to the hospital will be your safest bet. Prob not a good idea to get drunk and spend hours on a forum when your son has a serious illness either in future.


I LOL'd - (seriously)

Yes Harvie, I have a life.... I went out last night (as I do often on a Friday night) - you should try it sometime. (Didn't your shrink recommend doing that as part of your much needed therapy?)

Thank's for the concern though. It's really appreciated.



No changes..... he's still quite lethargic. Still got a temperature and face is full of colour. Unless anything changes, he'll just get regular doses of Calpol. It's certainly not got any worse, which is a good sign.

I'll probably give that Flu hotline a call that Sy mentioned.
#17
Aww bless i hope hes ok soon.
Ive been up all night with my little one.
Theres so many virus about that people assume it is SF, more often than not its regular cold/virus.

SF is moving anti clockwise around the country -
#18
get well soon mini guv. could be SF or not. ring em up and see if they advise SF. i have a feling its not though. i dunno. just sesne it!! :w00t:
#19
Aww hope your little one is OK.

We have swine flu or should I say my hubby and son have it.

It is nasty but best thing is bed, paracetamol and fluids. No different from real flu IMO, which is a nasty bug anyway. Maybe if I do catch it my opinion will change.

So I am browsing net, had a quiet lunch, infact the way things are going i reckon i could even get into a book.

The house is so quiet even the dog has been asleep all morning, only raising the odd eyebrow here and there to check I have not taken to my bed too.

Glad that you and mini-guv are OK.
Some good advice in here guv ^^^^ :thumbsup:

I am mightily hung-over, which serves me right. :oops:
I agree 'Men of Harlech' really isn't cool, but you are guv.:-D

hope the young one is on the mend, plenty of fluids and the same treatment you would if he had the flu/a cold.
suspended#26
There is nothing you can do to stop any flu. you can only ease some of the effects with medicines.
the best things are to get plenty of rest

And don't worry, swine flu is not at all dangerous, it's only the panic-generating government that is

Hi guv hope your son is feeling bit better, just wanted to point out to anyone mentioning going to hospital or walk in, that there are signs up in ours saying that if you have any flu like symptoms you should not go in but stay at home,
a friends little boy was ill last week and the doctor wouldnt see him at the surgery, instead she had to take him to a side door of the practise and the doc met them with mask and gown on!! he was sent home and they monitored him by phone.

If you are worried guv they seem to be diagnosing over the phone in most cases, my 5 year old had something that sound similar to how your son is and it took him about four days to recover, was diagnosed as viral in the end:)

Many thanks Andy...... Fortunately I didnt see the comments - but can imagine one or two members here finding a 9 year olds illness something to poke fun about.

Well he seems to be picking up a little. He's still got a temperature, but its not as bad as last night. (Isn't that normally the way - night time is worst!) He's managed to eat some of his favourite Tiger bread, so at least it's not killed his appetite completely. Plenty of Calpol and watching Cartoon Network in Bed again now. He's been pretty good tbh, no trouble and no whinging.

Thanks for the well wishes from everyone.:thumbsup:

My 5 year old slept loads and spent rest of time just sitting watching TV, which is so unlike him he never stops running around even if he is ill. His temp was really high too, I had fans on to cool him too, luckily it was only a few days. If his temp goes really high again dont forget he can have Ibuprofen as well as Calpol. :)
