High Fever + Croupy Cough + Runny Nose = ONE NASTY VIRUS!

It has been a rough few days in the Donnell house. Hudson woke up Thursday morning with a high fever, horrible cough, and a runny nose. He looked MISERABLE. I took him to the doctor where they immediately tested him for the flu. The test came back negative and they determined that he had a really nasty virus. (You can say that again!) So, we went home with a prescription for an ear infection (can't have a virus without an ear infection right?) and instructions to stay in. So, we have been doing just that...staying in, playing, and giving lots of TLC. Hopefully this nasty virus will be gone soon!!
Look at those red cheeks. :(

Hudson has been refusing to eat or drink. He hasn't eaten in 2 1/2 days actually...not fun. So, what does every good Mommy do? Go get a milkshake of course. He drank a few sips, but then quit after that. Oh well...on to the next idea!

Hello- I just wanted to let you know that I was trying to find info on viruses and your family page came up with the pics of your son. He is beautiful but with all the swine flu buzz and illness around right now I would not want random people looking at pics of any of my children. You never no what weirdos might be looking at him. I hope you are not offended but I would want someone to tell me. Good luck Tricia

This was helpful to me. I hope your son is better by now. My son has recently had a virus and today his cheeks got blood red which scared me silly! I found this Googling rashes. So glad its nothing crazy. Will still follow up with Dr but this looks just like my sons rash! Thanks!
