i would let the parents know and stay closed.

i have been closed all week as i have ahd swine flu.

the dr must be confident that your ds has the virus as they have given him tamiflu. in my area they only give it out if they think there is almost a certainty that you have it.

hope he gets better soon and good luck with the parents :thumbsup:

Hope he feels better soon...we were quarantined for 7 days (even though I & one of my kids haven't had any symptoms...the rest of the family have been on Tamiflu...it's now been extended as one of mine got ill a few days after the other 2, but as of Monday we are FREE! (So in total a 10 day quarantine)!

I also hope that your son is back to full health very soon.

How's your son today, hope he's getting better. My 6 year old son is on day 2 now but seems to be getting worse instead of better.

hope ur son b etter soon how do u give an 18mth old capsules????karen

try crushing them using a big spoon and a small spoon to crush the capsule then add a little water to the big spoon and the crushed capsule and put into your sons mouth (if he will allow it) then have a drink ready after as it might taste horrid (i could never take tablets as a teanager and had to crush them until my late teens)

Hope he is better soon, poor thing :(

Dont think your ment to break capsules, the covering is on to protect your stomach as it makes it a slow release and not so harsh without your stomachs natural acids :eek:
