I feel like I couldn't make up a crazier story. Bennett now has the Flu.
We had just come upstairs from playing a night-time game of hide and seek with Brian, Oliver and Avonlea in the courtyard outside the hospital.
The fever was just a random catch because in the hospital they are taking vitals all the time.
Before having to make Bennett do another blood draw, I asked the physician assistant (PA) to confirm he didn't have the flu.
Upon leaving Waco with my dad a few days ago, my mom came down with the flu. I wanted to make sure that he didn't also have the flu. The NP agreed that it was worth checking.
A nasal squab was taken and the PA woke me up in the middle of the night to say the blood work had been cancelled and Bennett had been started on Tamiflu.
Bennett slept peacefully last night and woke up this morning feeling great. Considering we know the source of Bennett's fever and considering he is significantly better than when he was admitted, the team has agreed we can go home.
So, today, we're going home AGAIN!
...this time, everyone in our family is on Tamiflu for the next 10 days.
What a ride,
