ER Visit for My Daughter

Normally, every day my daughter and I email each other and when I got nothing from her yesterday, I knew something was up. I called her and she sounded like she was at Death's Door. I told her to get her butt to the ER. Now mind you, she had the FLU shot as it was a freebie at the IT company she works for. Plus with her being a member of BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse), she had to be careful around the kids not to make them sick and vise-versa. She called me after getting home from the ER and yup; she has the Flu, Bronchitis and all of the other lovely symptoms. Because she already had the Flu shot, all they could do for her was give her a shot in the butt of antibiotics. Hopefully she'll feel better by Saturday considering it's her 48th birthday.

Thank you @Courage7 ; I'll pass it along to her. I hate to say it but I think those flu shots are more of a detriment than a good thing. I've never had one and never will and I've never had the flu.

Just three days to get well - at least she should be feeling a bit better by then

I sure hope so @Kandae11 . This flu thing has been so scary; particularly for her age group and a little younger. I just hope she's got some of my immune system. I even hug people who have it. They're fine in a couple of days and I don't get sick.

@Kandae11 Me too. I can't even remember the last time that would have happened. I think I was 8 years old.

@1hopefulman I just talked to her and she is feeling a little better even though when she went to go get the mail last night, she fell down the apartment complex stairs. Fortunately only some bruises there.

So sorry she has the flu. The flu shot did not serve the people well at all. I hope Saturday she will be able to celebrate her birthday!

They're saying maybe 30% effective? Seriously?? I don't ever get one and considering I'm falling apart at the seams, you'd think I'd be a perfect candidate for the stuff. I know what it is.....I'm just too dang ornery @Corbin5 .

@nanette64 I did not get one either. Due to having kidney disease, the flu would be a disaster for me, but I am equipped with surgical masks if I need to go among people. One good thing about winter, I keep my gloves on in stores. I have basically quarantined myself indoors. Anyone who enters my house gets a bacterial wipe. So far, so good. That flu shot brings in a ton of money, and even though it is rather useless, they still push it.

@Corbin5 Yup, better for you to be safe than sorry. I on the other hand, hug people who are sick. Oh yeah the pharmaceutical companies just have to make their money.

Well, this proves what I thought, you get the flu even if you got the flu shot. I hope she will be well soon, they say it's shorter when you had the shot... let us know.

I talked to her last night @LadyDuck and she said her temp had gone up slightly. I told her it was extremely important that she keep an eye on that. Her normal temp is 98.4 and it was at 98.7. I said if it hits 100, she needs to go back.

Sorry to hear that. I always get the worse kind of flu when I get the flu shot. And it lingers for months too. That's why I stopped having the flu shot. I am much better off. I hope she feels better soon.

Yep, the bad stuff is going on around here too. I stay at home these days. My late husband's daughter who comes to help me clean out my house called to say she was sick a week ago. Now she told me she is still sick and her fiance got sick too. They both still have fever and bad bronchitis. Hope your daughter feels mus better soon.
